It would be better to play extremely loud white noise or ringing every time the sensor picks up a loud noise. There shouldn't be a 10 second waiting time, it should be as instant as it can be, that way it will also turn off as their music turns off. They would never be able to listen to a song again >:)

#2 true, but as he said, he doesnt want to make it instant, because, what if the neighbour accidentally hits the wall?

actually, the best "anti-loud-neighbour" device is old damaged electric-motor ( rc car motor will do ), it will create interference ( irritating high pitch buzzing sound ) with any cd-player, tv set, radio... :D

well and then there are the next neighbors disturbed...

how about the good old "turn down the music or I will break your finger methode"
works fine for me everytime :D

on the other hand...
this device should turn on when the music from the neigbor stops, so that he can hear it...
doesnt make much sense to play the music if he doesnt hear it cuz his own music is much louder...

just my two cents ;)

#1 in the same spirit : I've always dreamt playing "Dragostea din tei" at max volume to kill the 2.30am party behind the wall (did you know this song ?)

"But yeah, it works, so that s cool."

Umm.. it doesnt work. They didnt stop playing their music.
Chances are, the neighbors cannot even hear his attempts at revenge.

What a knob. First of all you could just ask them to lower the volume. Secondly if you're not home who cares if they play loud music? and finally if you've gone through that much trouble you could have set up a noise cancelling system..

grrr. why would you mind them playing music while you are not at home?
I mean when I listen to music I DO consider my neighbours and actually do it when they are not at home.

Now, one would never be able to listen to music then? Not a great solution.

Simply another "who's got the biggest one" contest. I can see many reasons to tell that thing is really stupid...
- If you are actually staying at your place while your neighbors are making noise, you will be even more annoyed by your own music (same CD over and over again) after a while
- What's the point of this device if there is no one at your home?
- Completely useless unless you have only ONE neighbor. What if this place has has many "geek" tenants like him, at every floor?
- Not to say about the energy waste!

I used to do that but much simplier: "I'm going home" by ten years after. Max sound set CD-player on repeat and went to do some shopping. Within a few days they moved; problem solved.

He's just a sad gay wimp who's not man enough to go next door and ask them to turn it down.

He's a pain in the arse and will probably be wearing a baseball bat pretty soon. He won't hear anything then 'cos of all the bandages.
He doesn't seem to consider whoever lives on the other side of him either, blasting that shit song out for everyone to hear.
Probably some old age pensioner trying to nap.

Hate my noisy neighbors, they're so stupid. I would appreciate some (i) on how to get my hands on some good noise cancelling system. I need to deal with neighbors downstairs.
