An Electrolux lab study concluded vacuuming with music improves cleaning results and gives a general feeling of happiness. Researchers investigated the connection between music and vacuuming and played different styles of music from classical, R&B, pop, rock and jazz. Different factors were taken into consideration such as: heartbeat, dust pick up performance, number of sweeps with the nozzle, the difference between estimated and actual cleaning time, as well as the users flow and general sence of happiness during the test. The study was part of the development for Electrolux’s new product: the Ultrasilencer. It claims to be the quietest vacuum cleaner in the world, so quiet that it doesn’t hinder the enjoyment of music, even at low volumes.
