Noise is defined as unpleasant, unwanted, uncomfortable sound. One of the important factors, that affect the quality of the environment we live in and the human health, is the noise. The noise from daily activities can also cause intense complaints and severe physical and mental disturbances, especially hearing loss and sleep disturbances, as well as learning difficulties and distractions. Industrial and industrial areas are strictly inspected with the values specified in the regulation. However, working environments such as offices generally do not require any control because they have lower noise than limit values. However, this does not change the fact that office workers are exposed to noise. Especially when more than one employee shares the same office environment, employees mask their noises by listening to music with their headphones. Although this masking may seem effective against subjective noise, it directly affects employees' ear health negatively. In this study, noise measurements were made in three different office environments (three and one person) in Artvin Çoruh University and effects on employees were examined.
