If You've Ever Wondered How Your Surroundings Affect The Sound You Hear, Watch This

As anyone who loves to sing the shower already knows, there is something about the bathroom that makes a person’s voice sound better. There might be no hope for a record deal, but it’s still an upgrade to crooning in other locations. The reason? It’s all about molecules.

When a sound is made, it may travel through a solid, air, liquid or gas, but whatever form it takes, it’s transmitted by way of molecules. These molecules vibrate and collide with each other and their environment. As a result, the noise you end up hearing relies heavily on setting.

To demonstrate this, “Wikisinger” recently sang the same song in 15 locations. While it might sound like artificial reverb has been added, the intricacies of this song were created with the power of science.
