difficulty and stress in noisy environments
Enjoy your experience of sound in social spaces, without stress
The world is too noisy. We’re improving hearing wellness and solving the problems with sound in social spaces, so you can enjoy your social life.
Think back to the last time you went out to a meeting or a date in a social space.
Were you yelling into their ear and leaving with a sore throat, or were you sitting back enjoying a relaxing chat?
Could you feel the thump of speakers through the floor? Was the person munching crisps on the next table getting on your nerves? Or was it the scraping of cutlery that caught your attention?
We’re exposed to thousands of sounds every day. From work to transport to meeting friends, we encounter a whole host of sounds that have the ability to influence us positively or negatively.
Even when we’re wearing noise-cancelling headphones, sound can impact both our physical and mental health in more ways than you might imagine.
While in-ear tech and noise-cancelling headphones certainly have their part to play, they’re not the solution to our noisy world.
Instead, we need to focus on choosing and creating environments that put our hearing wellness up there alongside our physical and mental health.
So, if our social spaces have left you feeling down, frustrated or even outright annoyed, you’re not alone. We’re working with venues across the capital to change things for the better.
Mumbli helps you discover sound-friendly venues and make empowered choices about where you work, meet and date.
Join us in creating a world where everyone can hear and be heard.
How Mumbli Works
By collaborating with hearing health experts and academic institutions to understand sound performance in public spaces and the impact on hearing wellness, we have developed an IoT technology-based system that monitors and reports on the sound performance of public spaces in real-time.

Frequently Asked Questions
It seems I’m not the only person who can’t stand particular noises, it’s good to know that there are similar people to me out there.
My report says that I’m easily annoyed by sounds — whether by people or the environment — so I have a moderately high sensitivity to it. I would love to see this tool on the Play Store.
