Jolene and the Jolene Cookbook
Jolene is a system for measuring the sound levels of personal stereo systems. Jolene was designed and constructed by a student using a used fashion mannequin and a sound level meter wired to a silicone ear. Jolene is a resource of the Dangerous Decibels® partnership, which promotes hearing health and the prevention of noise induced hearing loss and tinnitus.
