I think it's the acoustics of a baseball stadium, I am pretty sure the Levi Stadium (hate that name) will be louder as it will be designed to reflect noise back onto the field.
Levi's will have the largest lower bowl in the NFL = most fans closest to the field (like a college stadium)
Projected noise accoustics (green = directly onto field; blue = reflected noise off glass facade of suite tower) :
...caveat is both factors will be dependant on how loud the fans get-- if the demographics of the likely revamped/updated STH's (i.e, there'll be more Silicon Valley/South Bay fans) is anything like that for Sharks hockey game = GOOD chance it'll be loud and improved homefield advantage over the Stick
if its more a yuppie, corporate crowd and a lot of diehard fans are priced out doe..
