Title: telephone problems due to noise...
Post by: Peter Ericksen on November 30, 2005, 01:43:24 AM
I work out of a home office in a home that I am 'borrowing' (a relative owns it) so I cannot make any drastic changes.

My problem is that when I talk on the phone using a head set (any headset) I hear feedback and the other end hears echoing.  

This is most likely due to the composition of the room being tile floors, hard furniture, etc.

Is there anything I can do to resolve this issue short of construction since this is not my house?

Thanks,

forgot to mention that I have between 4 and 5 computers running at any one time, as well as a laser printer.

I also keep a fan running 24/7 to keep the temperature bearable.

Just to prove it is reverberation of the walls, etc- try some pillows stacked around.  If this lessens the feedback, some sound absorbant foam at http://www.soundproofing.org/sales/acousticfoams.htm  might be needed.
