I work in a noisy environment. How can I reduce ambient sound?
Thinklabs stethoscopes are designed to attenuate ambient noise. The EmD Diaphragm and acoustic design of the One naturally reduce ambient noise. However, this works best when you have good skin contact.
- First thing to do is get good skin contact rather than listening through clothing.
- Consider your filter settings. We provide filter settings that cut out higher frequencies, especially for heart sounds. Play with the various filters and find the ones you like best for your work environment. See our Filter Recommendations for more advice on this.
- Keep the volume level as low as possible. Increased volume means amplifying the sounds, including ambient noise.
