Should I start thinking about using a dampener?

Is dampener really useful considering all the improvement that had happened in the racquet technology that happened?

I was following the pro in US open to see what the pro do and found some pro use and some doesn't use dampener.
A dampener only changes the sound and the feel of vibration from the racket. It does nothing to help or improve your game.

I like a more muted sound/feel so I use a dampener. If you don't use one and are fine with the sound / feel of your racket, you don't need one.
