4. If you have a Surround Sound System, Lower the Volume of the Left and Right channels: One of the testers at Consumer Reports says that he was almost able to eliminate the sound of the vuvuzelas by lowering the volume of his left and right speakers. The left and right channels carry the sounds of the crowds while the center channel carries the sound of the commentators. Give it a try.
5. If all else fails, hit the Mute button: When it all comes down to it, do you really need to hear what's going on or what the commentators are saying?
Or, even better, for those of us here in the states who have to get up at like 4am to watch some of the games, just leave the volume on so that you'll stay awake. See? There's a positive side to everything!
Good luck! Enjoy the games!
