masks "muffling sound" 

i've gotten some pushback on my claim that masks don't make people hard to understand.

i do know that deaf and hard of hearing people have trouble understanding people wearing masks because they can't see their lips, and that sucks, but that's not what i'm talking about.

here's a recording of me saying the phrase "testing testing 123" twice, about six feet away from the mic, once wearing a mask and once not.

i can't hear any difference. can you?

my mask is two layers of cloth with A/C filter material in between.
