I have a quick question about earplugs / earphones. What type of sound dampening is used during the actual GMAT exam? Do the testing centers use giant over-the-ear earphones, foam earplugs, or what? I know that this sounds really ridiculous, but there is a reason. I have a psychological condition called synesthesia that links my sight to what I hear. If I wear earphones or earplugs that I'm not used to, then the sights that I see could be really distracting / unfamiliar.
