The person that actually stayed in the room for 45 minutes was a news reporter who desperately wanted a story on the room. The only way he/she could was to see how long they can stay in the room.

Going in such a room would only drive my urges to have experiments pertaining to my fetish to incomprehensible measures.

i would imagine it's because they're used to not being able to hear. for people who aren't deaf, turning off all sound suddenly must put the body into some form of shock.

Deaf people don't actually completely lack sound. Most of them constantly hear something similar to white noise, according to my friend who studies sign language and deafness.

Most people don't understand that it is practically impossible to stay in it even 45 minutes. At -9 decibels sound is literally being sucked out of the air. No matter where you go in the world, there are always the background noises that you are so used to hearing that you would nearly go insane without them.

decibel isnt an exact scale, which means it can go into negative, without meaning that is less than no sound

You wouldn't be able to hear it. The walls are designed so that any sound is absorbed into them.

You would be able to hear it... The sound has to travel past you to reach the walls... All this room does is prevent sound from echoing. You'd still be able to hear someone if you were to have a conversation in there.

You'd hear the cumshot really loud. If you can hear your bloodflow, you can hear your cumflow.

For those interested in how it works (my dissertation is finally coming in some use ).

When a sound is created in an enclosed space, it will reach out to the edges of this space. Upon hitting the edges, it will do two things – reflect, and be absorbed through transmission. Depending on the smoothness of a surface, the ratio between absorption and reflection can differ. This paragraph sums up absorption and reflection well.

“All surfaces absorb some energy, reflecting the remainder back into space, the amount being reflected or absorbed being determined by the physical properties and shape of the surface material. For example, a flat marble surface will reflect most of the sound energy like a mirror whereas a tree trunk covered in textured bark will absorb more of the energy and its irregular shape will scatter the reflections rather than reflecting them in a specific direction.” (Paul White, 2001, report on advanced reverberation)

When a sound hits a surface, it will both be absorbed and reflected. As you can see in the diagram below, some of the sound is transmitted into the material it hits and travels through it, while some travels back the same way it came. This second wave will lose its power or volume because it is split, and will keep reoccurring on other surfaces in the space until it has lost all power to absorption.


The walls of this room are highly absorbant, and at a guess i'd say have an absorbancy co-efficiency of around 95% (95% of a sound wave gets absorbed, 5% reflected), meaning the volume of that sound is halved everytime it hits a wall. This is a HUGE absorbancy level which will make reverb times next to nothing.

If youre interested in more check out RT60, Reverberation, Standing Waves, and Frequency Response.

Also, for those interested in how it gets to negative decibels.

Decibels are a relative measurement. If you spoke into a microphone, the recorded volume would be 0dB, because its not relative to anything. If you doubled the volume mechanically, it would be 3dB. If you doubled it again, it would be 6dB and vice versa.

These rooms absorb so much sound that anything spoken gets made 8 times quieter to the speaker. Of course if you spoke directly into someones' ear the room wouldn't make a difference, but if you spoke or made a noise from a position you're stood at, the returned sound would be at least 8 times quieter, which is almost inaudible.

You forgot to mention the most important thing: which is that decibels are a logarithmic unit. Which is why 6 dB is double the amount of 3dB, not the same increment of difference.

Despite it saying you go mad, it would be really interesting to try, its pretty much a sensory overload as far as I can tell.

I just don't see what's so bad about hearing your own breathing/heartbeat/bloodflow....I guess it would sound gross, but thats about it.

Your brain NEEDS constant stimulation, otherwise it just goes crazy and starts making up crazy stuff.   
   
Much like Cortana in Halo 4, only without the buck teeth.
