Having trouble finding ideal soundproofing materials? If yes, below you’ll find top soundproof materials you should definitely try.

When it comes to soundproofing, you don’t have to be an acoustic specialist or an architect to get it right. You can easily do it yourself at home with an easy soundproof DIY project. If you choose to do it yourself, it’s very important that you use the right materials. Most importantly, you want to make sure that you use the best material to reduce sound transfer

While it might sound easy, knowing what materials to use to reduce sound is not that easy. It is with this that we’ve opted to share with you this soundproofing post. These must have materials allow you to isolate sound in rooms, prevent echoes and reverberations as well as prevent noise from entering certain rooms.

The must-have soundproof materials we’ll focus on in this post (not in any particular order) are;

  • Wavebar Barrier
  • Whisper Panel
  • Subdue X

Wavebar Barrier

Also known as limp mass barrier, this soundproofing material is a must-have in any DIY project. This is more-so true if you want to deaden sound. So what is Mass Loaded Vinyl? Well, it’s simply a flexible sheet that has plenty of mass. This mass helps in reducing sound transfer. Hang and attach to the studwork then fix the plasterboard, the other benefit is the decoupling of the system which reduces vibration and the transfer of the lower frequencies. 

Whisper Panel

Whisper panel is another must-have material when thinking of absorbing and reducing sound. With it, you’ll be able to improve the acoustics in just about any room. This is why many sound recording studios use it when soundproofing. It is also a very popular choice in cinemas or halls where bands perform. So how does it work? Well, it dissipates sound energy as heat. As a result of this, sound waves, when it contacts the form, increases air resistance. This works to help reduce echoes and improve acoustics.

Subdue X

Lastly on this list of must-have soundproofing materials is Subdue X. With Damped Drywall you get a material that deadens sound waves. How does it do this? Well, it uses vibration damping technology. 

Subdue X is a composite sandwiched panel with a  centre of any Damped Drywall is a layer made using viscoelastic-like material. This material moves the same time sound waves moves. In the process, it ends up dissipating the sound energy passing by into heat wave.
