This is a story I read about a Sailor who worked around Jets all day for years. This room had some interesting effects!

Wouldn't the room become less quiet with a person in it?

How can it be - in decibel? I mean.. well I don't know, just sounds weird to me.   
   
Also, any source on this?

Decibels are measured off of a standard that came up with when they first invented decibels
So 0 decibels is the quietest room they could find when they unit was invented. This room is quieter than that

the room is designed to suppress sounds so well that actually a certain level of sound is absorbed

okay, actually i searched what a db really is, after reading the other comment, and it turns out that the decibel is a logarithmic unit, so 0db is 1 and negative values are numbers between 1 and 0..

The decibel is commonly used in acoustics to quantify sound levels relative to a 0 dB reference which has been defined as a sound pressure level of .0002 microbar, or 20 micropascals.[17] The reference level is set at the typical threshold of perception of an average human and there are common comparisons used to illustrate different levels of sound pressure. Sound pressure is a field quantity, so the formula used to calculate sound pressure level is the field version

i'm not actually understanding it so well, so if you want to understand yourself here's the link en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Decibel#Acoustics

but i just woke up so.. i'm going to make myself a coffee

Simply put, decibels are a relative measurement. If you spoke into a microphone, the recorded volume would be 0dB, because its not relative to anything. If you doubled the volume mechanically, it would be 3dB. If you doubled it again, it would be 6dB and vice versa.

How is it -9 decibels?

I think that when the decibel system was invented, 0 was just the quietest noise at the time but now with science and wizardry we are able to go below that level of quiet..
I actually have no idea, this is just the conclusion I have come to.

the materials used in making the walls absorb sound. thats the way it was set up

I understand that, but isn't no noise just 0 decibels? I don't understand how it can be negative.

when the walls absorb the sounds, it can go into the negative, my old ear doctor had a room like this one, it only went to -1 tho, used mainly for testing people that have hearing problems to determine what ear is going bad, and just how bad it is. if a sound is played on one side of your head, the opposite ear wont hear it, triped me out when he tested my hearing to show me how it worked

Aren't decibels a logarithmic value, for example 60 decibels is ten times noisier than 50 decibels. -9 decibels wouldn't mean negative noise, but an amount of noise a million times lesser than whatever is at 50 decibels.

that i sadly dont know, just what little i do remember from what my doctor told me a long time ago. if you find out, let me know tho, i love information.

Those of you saying you think you could beat that, think again.

It literally feels like sound gets sucked out of the air. The effect is supposed to stimulate infinite space in all directions with nothing to reflect sound back at you.

You could make all the sound you want, but nothing comes back at you.

Experience: I've been in a similar room like the picture, but it was less sophisticated since it was at a hospital for a hearing test

Would someone be able to explain to me how it is possible to have a minus amount of decibels?

Well, when there is negative amount of decibels, it means that if you`ll make a sound, in this case up to 9 decibels, you won`t hear them.

There is basically no noise to be heard so the sound frequency is so low. In a normal "quiet" room there is actually sound, whether you can hear it or not. But this room absorbs all the sound

db are measured kinda like celsius, so you can have minus, minus bd just means really quiet like how -100 celsius means really cold

decibels are measured on a logarithmic scale; something at 100 decibels is 10x louder than something at 80 decibels. Something at 60 decibels is 10x louder than something at 40 decibels. Similarly, something at -20 decibels is 10x quieter than something at 0 decibels.

saying 'the longest anyone has been able to barethe room was 45 minutes' is a little misleading.

it's not that they can't bare it, it's just 45 minutes is enough to experience being in a room with attributes such as these. it's not like the strongest willed person ran screaming from the room after 45 minutes because they just couldn't take it anymore.

i read a little about it and a guy who went in said that the weirdest thing was clapping. because there are no echos, he says, it sounds like a weak slap on the hand as opposed to what we know as 'clapping'.
