There's a reason your vacuum, car, potato chips, and many other products are way louder than they need to be. Cheddar explains why sound design is so important for products, and how that subconsciously affects us on a daily basis.

How about a silent vacuum but you only hear when it picks up dirt? Satisfying.

What about goddamn blenders. I swear everytime someone uses a blender in my house I feel like throwing it outside my window

As someone working in a hardware store I can confirm that customers will distrust a silent vacuum cleaner and occasionally even return it.
So all those "fake sounds" are added cuz we, in general, are idiots.

If Apple makes a vacuum cleaner, it'll be their first product that doesn't suck.

The car company’s are just thinking about all the blind drivers, they need noises so they know which gear they swapped to.

As having a mental disorder that gives me hearing issues, I hated vacuum noises with a passion.
Now that I know that the sounds are just orchestrated "for our pleasure", I have another reason to hate some companies.

The a-hole who plays his music on full blast and revs his engine as he goes by my house doesn't seem very powerful with his stupid loud car

I want a vacuum that makes nom-nom-nom sounds while I vacuum. And says "Mmmmm." everytime it eats something big!

Why would people assume that loud noises = good mechanism 🤦‍♀️ I love cars that make as little sound as possible, same goes with vacuums, hair driers, blenders etc To me ,the less noise it makes, the more “futuristic” the product.

I'd take a silent vacuum any day.

The pop when you open those bottles are there for safety, it means there’s no air coming in and is fully sealed.

The fact that human beings actually spend their valuable time trying to find the perfect "car door closing" sound is honestly the saddest thing I've ever heard
