Choosing and Finding Soundproof Foam

  • There are many reasons to add soundproof foam to your residence or other dwelling, but the question is: what's it for? Why are you soundproofing? If it is just to cut down on exterior noise, that's one thing. But, if it is to reduce reverberation and echo for your home studio, well, that's another thing entirely!

  • For the studio. If you need soundproof foam for better sound acoustics in your studio or rehearsal space, you'll want high quality foam. Internet shopping makes finding the foam extremely easy, as you can view sets, as well as specific pieces you may need for touch ups. Music equipment supply companies have an excellent selection of acoustic and soundproofing foam.

  • For the home. If you are simply looking to block some of the noise entering your home, you will want a completely different type of foam. This foam looks very much like the insulation that is rolled out in attics and crawlspaces in houses everywhere. There even different foams types and thicknesses depending upon decibel levels. Whether you just want to cut down on background noise, or the amount of noise that foot traffic generates in your house, there is a foam to match your particular needs. There are several excellent websites that offer soundproofing options for nearly everything.

  • On the cheap. If you want something temporary, or just cannot afford the more expensive foams, you can always use simple eggshell foam found at most department stores. This foam is normally used for additional cushion on a mattress, but it will work just fine for simple soundproofing on a budget. Especially if you don't mind the colors!
