Annoying forms of reverberation occur in many places. Everybody recognizes the reverberation in churches, but also in corridors and stairwells.

Listening to music is also less pleasant in a room in which it is reflected. In short, acoustics are a not insignificant factor in creating a pleasant living environment.
