Join Sound Speech and Hearing Clinic (Sound) and The Hearing and Speech Center of Northern California (HSCNC) in determining the quietest (and loudest) restaurants, cafes and bars in San Francisco using the new “Yelp for sound” app SoundPrint.
Capture noise levels and readings Monday October 22 – Thursday October 25 in select neighborhoods (see below). All participants are encouraged to meet up Thursday, October 25, following measurements, at the Napper Tandy, to celebrate a week of data collection with FREE appetizers, ear plugs, hearing checks and raffles, in honor of National Protect Your Hearing Month.
You can get involved by downloading the SoundPrint app, and beginning to capture data using “Sound Checks”! Participants are encouraged to collect “Sound Checks” from 5-10 establishments per day in the following neighborhoods:
Haight Ashbury/Cole Valley
Pac Heights/Presidio Heights/Laurel
Russian Hill/Nob Hill
Bernal Heights/Glen Park
Mission - Meet up at the Napper Tandy when you are done from 6:30 - 8:00
Sound Print is an app known as the “yelp of sound”, allowing users to identify restaurants, bars and cafes where noise does not interfere with conversations. Sound and the HSCNC have partnered with Sound Print to bring this service to the Bay Area. Through this week long campaign the two clinics will curate a “Quiet List” of venues in San Francisco.
