There is nothing worse than having extra echo or a large reverb in your room when you are trying to talk on the phone, record your voice, or record music. This generates excessive noise thus making it difficult to hear anything. So how can you solve this problem? There are many materials that can be used to isolate a room, for example: foam rubber, acoustic membrane, mineral wool, fiberglass, drywall, as well as various sound absorbing panels, etc.
A quick, affordable, and simple solution to reduce echo and dampen noise is to install foam panels. They are usually rectangular or square in shape. They are made of a soundproof material to help reduce unwanted noise such as reverb and echo within a certain space. The chemical makeup of this material increases air resistance making it difficult for sound to travel quickly. Acoustical foam is an open celled foam, often in the shape of cones or triangles. However, acoustical foam is really only effective at absorbing high-end frequencies, meaning if you have trouble with mid-frequencies or bass, then foam most likely will not greatly improve your sound situation.
Acoustic panels help control sound wave reflections across all frequencies, creating a balanced sounding room that is ideal for recording and mixing audio. With sound absorbing panels you can enjoy a pleasant transparent sound not only in a professional studio, but also at home, thanks to the original design and excellent sound absorbing properties. Often, acoustic panels are combining a high-performance acoustic foam with a carefully calibrated scatter plate, which provides a level of diffusion, so the room sounds alive, but controlled.
A bass trap is a type of acoustic treatment panel that helps reduce problems in the low-end of the frequency response of a room. Bass traps must be installed symmetrically to each other, both on the right and left walls, that will ensure they work at their best capacity.
Another material used for soundproofing is mineral wool, which is an acoustic material specially used during construction to fit in-between the verticle studs of the wall or ceiling. It is ideal for absorbing and damping both airborne and structure-borne noise, as well as reducing vibration and reverberation. Noise propagates through the vibration of air particles, but mineral wool, which is porous and elastic, prevents air movement and consequently reduces the noise level. Mineral wool is extremely lightweight and easy to install anywhere without any additional rigid mountings.
There are many different options for isolating a room, but this requires the sacrifice of space. However, soundproofing can be done without wasting space in the room. Various types of soundproofing membranes can be found on the market today, which have different levels of isolation. Despite their small thickness, the membranes are very durable. At the same time, the materials are elastic and flexible, so it is easy to install them on the desired surface. Soundproofing membranes do not absorb water. They are resistant to rot, not afraid of temperature changes, they are also fireproof.
