SoundPrint, an app that measures noise has tapped Issa PR, luxury global strategy and public relations agency, to launch the innovative new company in the UK. Newly released data from SoundPrint has revealed that London restaurants are the loudest in Europe, second worldwide only to San Francisco’s dining scene. As the public embraces the return of dining out, loud noise is set to return to pre-pandemic levels even after the relative quiet of COVID. SoundPrint, the ‘Yelp for Noise’ also unveiled a London Quiet ListTM of restaurants most conducive to conversations – in partnership with hearing protection leader, ACS and leading tinnitus resource, T-Minus. Issa PR will handle all media relations and strategy.
Created by founder Gregory Scott after personal challenges dining out with hearing loss, the leading-edge app now maintains the largest, crowdsourced database of venue-based sound levels worldwide. SoundPrint allows users to search for restaurants, cafés and other venue categories by sound levels and equips users with a decibel meter enabling them to record and submit sound measurements. ‘The London Quiet List’ features a list of London restaurants with comfortable sonic atmospheres and includes favorites, such as Locanda Locatelli, Tamarind, The Ledbury, Lutyen’s Grill at The Ned, Rules and Indigo at One Aldwych Hotel, among others. Ten restaurants in Chinatown also made the Quiet List from over 1,000 submitted across Mayfair, Soho, Covent Garden, Notting Hill, Fitzrovia, the City, and Marylebone.
Gregory Scott, SoundPrint’s founder, noted “SoundPrint empowers users to choose reliably quieter venues to suit their comfort level for conversation and protects against noise-induced hearing loss. We knew we had to select a PR agency that not only understands the service we offer but also is able to communicate it thoughtfully. Issa PR is known for their rich storytelling capabilities and extensive knowledge, and connections. We are thrilled to appoint them in the UK.”
“It is a true honor to represent a cutting-edge company like SoundPrint. They have a product and a story that is worthy of worldwide attention and we are excited to be chosen to capture and tell it in an impactful way. While they are launching in the UK, we are aiming to target the UK and beyond through an intricate, multi-layered PR strategy,” said Viet N’Guyen, CEO and Founder of Issa PR.
