You could just get used to cubing in a noisy environment. For BLD events it's silent anyway. If need be you could get some ear protecters
like builders sometimes where, but you might get funny looks

Yeah I personally have started using ear protection for non-BLD solves and I find it helps me concentrate even in the relative quiet of my house. It is true that you can't use electronic headphones at all regardless of whether or not they're playing music, turned on, etc.

Last night I was playing with the latest version of Tnoodle, and was able to match the colors after scrambling for every type of cube I have with the exception of the square-1. I systematically solved it and reapplied the same scramble last evening to get the same results: The shape matches, but the colors are off. I even played the scramble backwards to retreat to the initial solved position -- which verified that I did execute the scramble correctly.

Hence my question: What color scheme is assumed by Tnoodle for the square-1? The WCA regulations simply state to pick the darkest of the two possible faces where the front face shows the narrow part of the center slice on the left -- I assumed red in front and yellow up. My square-1 coloration matches the Western colorset: U L F R B D == White Orange Green Red Blue Yellow, if that helps.
