What is a Sone?
A sone is an internationally recognized unit of loudness. The sones translate laboratory decibel readings into numbers that correspond to the way people sense loudness. Double the sone is double the loudness. In everyday terms, one sone is equivalent to the sound of a quiet running refrigerator in a quiet kitchen. The lower the sone, the quieter the exhaust fan is.
