yes. A mirror reflects sound with better fidelity than a wall because its surface is harder than most walls.

More Information:

A surface may be considered "smooth" if the largest feature of its texture is smaller than about 1/20 of a wavelength. Most walls would easily pass this test. Further, the rigidity of a wall is important in the reflection process. A smooth concrete wall would reflect sound better than one of wood, and that in turn would be better than sheet polystyrene foam.

What does distorted mean?

A distortion is the alteration of the original shape of an object, image, sound, waveform or other form of information or representation. Distortion is usually unwanted, and in practice there are many methods employed to minimize it.The term is often used for the observation or impression as well, as in a distorted view of the world.In some fields, distortion may be desirable. Such is the case with Electric Guitar distortion, which is the alteration of the sound waveform to add unique characteristics.

Why do light coloured objects reflect radiation more than dark coloured objects?

Because dark colours absorbs light, and energy;and its named absortion coefficient. ============================== Some substances and objects made from them reflect more light and absorb less. Other substances and objects made from them reflect less light and absorb more. The ones that reflect more and absorb less are the ones that appear lighter to us. Why ? Because they absorb less light and reflect more of it toward our eyes.
