Q: How does a quiet basketball work?

Q: What is a quiet basketball made of?

A: Quiet basketballs are made of softer materials than standard basketballs. These can include foam, rubber composites, or other noise-dampening materials designed to absorb the sound of the bounce rather than reflect it.

Q: How many decibels is a basketball bouncing on hard wood? On concrete? On the tile floor? How about compared to QuietBounce?

A: A standard basketball bouncing on hardwood might register between 50-60 decibels. On concrete, it could be louder due to the harder surface, while on a tile floor, the sound can be amplified by the material's reflective nature. The QuietBounce basketball produces significantly fewer decibels, at less than 20 decibels. For reference, this is roughly the same volume as the hum of a refrigerator.
