Have you ever noticed different degrees in sound when it comes to commercial breaks? It seems that TV adverts are at a higher level of volume than to say the programmes broadcast. I personally think it is the case that a high percentage of the general public will get up and make a drink in the kitchen when the adverts come on. So the ad men/women have come up the tricky nack of increasing the volume of their adverts so that the public will still pick up what the ad is about. It also lets the viewer know when a programme is about to come back on.
I personally don't like adverts so I mute the sound or change the channel.[_shared_elements/comment_on_this_review.htm]
