Acoustic foam panels are the perfect solution for keeping unwanted sound out of neighboring spaces. Musicians needing a home studio or dedicated practice space turn to acoustic foam to add an extra layer of isolation on walls. They have the added benefit of creating a quiet environment inside the room, perfect for quality recording or practice time. Foam options come in different thicknesses and sizes. Two-inch thick panels in one- or two-sq. ft. sections are standard for most home studios, but four-inch panels will absorb lower bass frequencies. There may be some cutting required to get the perfect fit on walls.
