OK. You don't need a device to tell you that you are being bothered. But
unfortunately this society isn't as yet enough developed as to allow you
to knock your neighbour's door and say "Would you please turn your music
down?" and get an instant and favourable response. Until that time arrives
(I'm confident that this will happen some time in the future), we must
rely on some "objective" criteria which are unbeatable on court. Those
criteria haven't yet been established.

What I was trying to say is that education is the key for that future
civilized societal behaviour.

All the best.
