They even have the wedges on the floor so you walk on a suspended grid that's like a trampoline and entire room is decoupled from the rest of the building.

Hmm, so let me pull out my expressions-to-dBA chart...

...turns out it depends on context. SPCR, that means around 13dBA. Under "standard market speak", it says 30dBA

Well, I'm pretty sure a concrete room built on springs with giant fiberglass wedges doesn't qualify as "standard market" anything :)

A super cool quiet room with two guys inside talking.
It felt sort of sacrilegious to me.
They could have at least whispered. :roll:

Interesting thing the one guy said about the wedges and their length. I did not know that.
