    raymiller11:

    I’ve been playing around with home recording, having transformed a bedroom into an occasional studio with a range of equipment and some MXL 603 microphones for acoustic guitar and vocal recording. Being a bedroom, it lacks the assured silence and acoustic dampening that would be ideal (having the curtains closed helps!). I looked into commercial microphone shields and acoustic booths but the cost seemed higher than I could justify.

    Being a fan of a bit of DIY, it struck me that, with some acoustic foam and a simple frame, I could create my own acoustic shield. There are a lot of different foam panels available and some are clearly more professional (and expensive) than others. These seemed very reasonably priced and the 12 inch (300mm) square size gave me a lot of flexibility in how I mounted them.

    The result? OK, so nobody is going to believe I achieved commercial studio standards but the panels are certainly doing their job. My home made acoustic booth, in combination with microphone shock mountings for ground isolation, is providing a very adequate shield and definitely improves the overall acoustic performance.

    Not bad for the price of the panels and a few wooden straps, hinges, screws and spray glue for mounting. I reckon it saved me at least £100 over any similar, commercially produced product.

    Well what can i say besides this was a brill buy,
    I am planing on buying more in the very near future.
    It was delivered super fast, it came in a big plastic bag which i thought was great as i get sick to death of over packaging & there was all 24 tiles in the bag.

    Y. R. Yon “@julianyon”:

    These do exactly what they’re meant to. It’s not particularly dense foam but it absorbs sound and prevents echoes at close range as needed for (e.g.) a vocal booth. The dimensions are a bit approximate; it’s sold as 305×305mm, but it would be better labelled as 1×1ft. By which I mean, some tiles are a millimetre or two out due to miscuts, so 305mm is a little overprecise. Nevertheless this is perfect for acoustic treatment in a box-room studio, at a very competitive price.

    Mark A. Streets (Derby UK):

    These are fantastic, my studio room (3m x 2.5m) was way too bright, causing me to overcompensate and produce somewhat dull mixes. These tiles have done wonders to solve this.

    C Twain (London United Kingdom):

    These provide my room with much needed dampening control. Obviously not gonna get the best environment in a bedroom but it works for me.

    Macca: reviews

    Super quick delivery and good price. In terms of performance I don’t have anything to compare to but am sure will do the job nicely – Ideal for the home studio if you’re on a budget.

    UPDATE

    After using these for a while I can honestly say they make a huge difference to the home studio, they tightened the sound immediately, making the monitors sound far better without those unwanted sound reflections. I did not realise how bad the sound I was getting until I used these. Will probably try a couple of bass traps next.

    If you have a home studio I can honestly recommend spending a few quid on acoustic treatment before forking out money on the latest must-have plugin.

    D. Conlan “Luke O’Zade” (Manchester England): reviews

    Used these to soundproof a bedroom for young aspiring DJ…. covered the ceiling, one back wall and remaining tiles in strategic places on other walls, but didn’t realise they had to be in the advertised pattern and laid ours in symmetrical pattern (facing all the same way). Does this matter ?

    NathanHerts: reviews

    The level of noise reduction is fantastic, we had a bear studio and just putting 15 of these tiles in a few places has made the world of difference

    P. Ryding (UK):

    I still can’t believe the price of these tiles, I’m building a new studio and have a few professional acoustic tiles by Universal acoustics left over from my old studio that cost me £5.64 each, that would be £135 for 24. I saw these and thought: OK for £20 I may as well see if they’re any good. Basically they’re exactly the same; Same foam density, same size, same colour, but £1 each!

    Absolutely blown away really. Total bargain.

    I’ve ordered some of their bass traps too after this, they’re usually around £40 each for a 1 foot version but this company are doing them for £40 for the pair and they’re 3 foot. Again, absolute bargain.

    Now if they only made mixing desks too ;)

    Everything was problem free and the goods arrived quickly. Wouldn’t hesitate to use the company again, and the product does its job.

    Jgillies:

    i am always pleased with the soundproof. it is very good quality and it always gets delivered on time and no damage to the package.
    the soundproof itself is very good for the price and the size , i have over 80 of these soundproof panels and they work fantastically for what i need them for.
    my advice to you is , buy this soundproof in large quantities , 24panels filled half a wall for me , so the more you have the more of your walls you will fill.

    they make a big difference to my room and if you have nothing then the money spent on these are worth it !

    Rich:

    I purchased these tiles because it was the next step in creating an amateur studio. As music making is more of a hobby than anything else, I knew that I did not want to spend a huge amount of money. Also, I had a very limited idea on how to acoustically treat a room, so I did not want to buy super expensive tiles incase I got it wrong.

    I am very pleased with these tiles. I put them on my wall in alternating orientations and they have had a positive effect. Sound now feels punchier and the room echoes less. In all fairness, I don’t think these are true acoustic tiles as they aren’t very dense and most other places charge many pounds per tile. That being said, these tiles do work well, look the part and you just cannot complain for the price.

    RA: reviews

    I bought these tiles for £20 for 24 tiles and at that price you can’t complain. They definately deadened the sound as I wanted. They look quite good (thou that shouldn’t really be an issue) and they are very light weight. Instead of using spray glue I glued velcro strips to the back of then so I can move them or reuse them, and I velcroed them on to exibition carpet that is glued to my wall. They probably not as good as the expensive tiles you can buy but I’ve never bought any expensive tiles so I wouldn’t know.

    Phil Shelley (Netherton, Merseyside United Kingdom): reviews

    Acoustic tiles can be damned expensive; cheap acoustic tiles can be damned useless – these tiles buck both trends. The price is great and they actually work.

    I used them to line a recording booth, where I needed to both prevent incoming sound leakage, and to make the area as ‘dry’ as possible, so that I could introduce controlled ‘wet’ effects at the editing and mixing stages.

    My advice is: ‘get them!’

    By the way, they reached me within a couple of days of placing the order, so I can’t fault the service either.

    RobAC:

    I bought a box of these tiles to treat a small home studio, thought I’d try them for the cheap price. Once I had applied tiles to a small part of two adjacent walls I could already hear an astonishing effect they had on the sound. The reverberation of my voice, music from speakers and any other sound has been dramatically reduced, providing the perfect conditions for recording.

    These tiles are incredibly effective, and do everything that the more expensive ones do. They are perfect for home recording, and anyone who buys and uses them will be extremely satisfied with the results.

    iceman: reviews

    I bought these tiles to cancel out my neighbours noise from their hardwood flooring, and their awful singing, they are totally tuneless ha ha. Now thanks to these tiles stuck to my ceiling, they have made my flat as Quiet as Nuclear sub, rigged for Silent Running. They are Cheap, and Great Value, But they do the Job of silencing your noisy neighbours well, I would highly recommend these to a friend. I my self are buying a hell of a lot more of them, They are Great Value, Do the Job Well…. What more can you Ask for?

    Karrade (uk): reviews

    I bought these tiles to reduce sound reflection in my home studio. They did the job so well I bought another pack and a pack of their foam bass traps. My studio now has a much clearer and natural sound and the bass response is much more even. There are more expensive tiles on the market which would undoubtedly work slightly better but these work exceptionally well for the cost. I would highly recommend them for any home cinema, music room or recording studio that is having trouble with sound reflections. Please note these are not designed to soundproof a room, they are designed to improve the sound quality within the room.

    Armstrong (UK):

    My small room suffered from a high-end very short “springy” reverb noticeable on louder vocals, claps, shouts etc. using a large diaphragm condenser microphone. Strategically placing these foam tiles in the corners and in blocks around the area in which I record sorted the issue nicely. I decided not to arrange them alternately as I didn’t like the look of them that way and they work well that way for me.

    I struggled for a bit with how to attach them since I didn’t want to damage the walls or paintwork but found a good solution so decided to share it here as it may help others:

    I wanted to use blue-tack (or actually in my case white-tack since I find that leaves less of a greasy mark) but obviously this wouldn’t stick to the foam. Off Amazon I bought a Stanley Heavy-Duty Glue Gun and the Silverline 698462 50 Pack Glue Sticks then used this on the hot setting to glue small pieces of plastic to the corners and centre of the backs of the tiles. For the plastic I used a thin plastic wallet from an A4 ring binder (the kind you put 1 sheet of paper in for protection) and cut it into small pieces about 3cm square. The tack sticks well to the plastic and in turn to the walls/ceiling. A few decided to sky-dive off in the night but eventually they all conformed and stayed up.

    Mr. Nicholas H. Hill: reviews

    Great product. It’s transformed a ringy vocal area that sounded like a bathroom into something that’s usable for all but the most critical of voiceovers (and at that level the faults are more with the room and the mic than this foam). Planning to buy some more to do the rest of the room – one box seems like a lot (it’s a pretty enormous box!) but we’ve already used three or four, and there are still bare areas of wall.

    Note that this is acoustic baffling rather than soundproofing (it won’t mask reversing trucks, arguments from next door etc) but for what it is (and how much it costs), it does the job brilliantly.

    clairehannah: reviews

    Can’t say anymore than this but that I am just delighted with this product. The difference they have made to the sound of my new studio, the acoustics sound amazing. I will definitely be ordering more for my vocal booth..
    Quick delivery.

    Thank you :)

    leon searley:

    I got these for my sons Who is 15 he is a very keen music player who plays piano, drums, guitar, and uke, and uses studio mixers ect.
    We made a music room from a unused garage but the eco was very bad so we put downs some rugs and got the tiles, we wasent expatiating much for the price but we was wrong they make a massive difference.

    The only thing that i had a problem with is that 24 wasent enough to do a massive difference i could of done with 24 more but that would be to much for are needs.

    Colin:

    I have not used any other brand so can’t compare for quality, but my room certainly sounds a lot nicer.

  26. 5 out of 5

    F. COLEMAN (UK):

    I wouldn’t use these exclusively to acoustically treat and entire room, but I have used 18 of them to create some movable acoustic screens and the remaining 6 low on a wall where the bass drum sits. And they really do the job!

    A. G. Morrison: reviews

    Just received my tiles absolutely brilliant service, immediate dispatch and quick delivery
    As for value,you wont get better at the price (£20.0 for 24 305x305mm tiles )
    As for quality well these are, as far as I can see, proper acoustic tiles not packaging foam as one reviewer suggested, just check the sellers webpage and decide for yourself.
    Just so you know these tiles are soft and flexible, not hard and solid

    These are cut with a CNC machine and the finish is perfect they also fit side by side perfectly
    I bought these to make a acoustic cloud at the ceiling first reflection points for my Home cinema and these fit the bill perfectly
    As you can see I am one happy customer

    Note: that if you by more than one quantity the postage doubles but as they come in a big cardboard box it seems fair enough.

    Pulse Music Studios:

    I purchased this product a couple months back but have only recently had the time to add them to our already acoustically treated Studio 1 at our rehearsal rooms. Previously we used Universal Acoustic products which did an exceptional job for a much higher cost, however there was still some residual reflection issues as our rooms are large and high with painted walls.

    Once we changed the layout of our studio rooms in order to best suit the bands we have in, we required more tiles but it was decided to try something else in order to cut costs (At the time these tiles were on special offer for an amazing price I might add!). Whilst perhaps not quite as durable or as thick as the Universal Acoustic tiles and they appear to be made up of a different type of foam, we were suitably impressed with the performance of the Pro Acoustic tiles in conjunction with the Universal Acoustic ones, despite being an 8th of the cost! Since adding these tiles to the previous treatment, feedback from the bands in our studios has been exceptional and we believe that the Pro Acoustic tiles give more for your money.

    I have given 4 out of 5 as a couple of the tiles had a bit extra which needed to be cut off and tidied up a bit, which was of no real concern to us and another was ripped whilst being repositioned, as opposed to the Universal Acoustic tiles which have been repositioned a number of times without any damages. My true score would be 4.5 out of 5 however. I hope the manufacturer and any readers do not misinterpret my comments as negativity towards the product, the durability of repositioning and the slight untidiness were minor issues that I would highlight only if pushed to criticise them. Overall the product does a remarkable job and says nothing about repositioning once stuck to the walls, being thinner however meant they were easier to tear and had less area to grasp when trying to remove.

    I have read one comment claiming that the foam isn’t an acoustically treated product which is rubbish. They have done a fantastic job for us and despite being thinner we’ve found that the different densities between the two has actually worked well with providing a great sounding live room. We are now looking to purchase more Pro Acoustic tiles to go in Studio 2 and are even looking at their bass traps rather than the Universal Acoustic ones going forward!!

    Does the job well and so easy to fit. The speed of delivery was amazing….so quick. I ordered it late in the afternoon and it arrived the next morning.

    Nomirek:

    First of all, I was amazed on how quickly I got this product. I ordered it in the morning 29/08, and it was delivered in the morning of 31/08. The box was easy to open, and the tiles were easy to get out. These are my first ever acustic foam tiles that I’ve ever had, so I didn’t know how to stick it. Had some problems, tried many methods, but they didn’t ripped or anything. Finally found a tutorial and got it on my walls. I ordered those ones, because you can do great patents with them, not like with those sonarflex or pyramids. It works amazing, and looks amazing. Definitely going to order more in nearest future. And ofcs, as it says in the titles, great price for those. Worth it!

    dave hammond:

    Very effective. Does work exactly as described. Only suggested inprovement word be to offer coloured version. Also dimensions of tiles are a little inconsistent…the foam is quite soft.

    had no problems gluing to walls but over time some fell off and needed resticking apart from that a good product.

    They work really well in my room got rid of a lot of scum bag tones. I was a nerd about it and worked out where the tiles needed to be before I put them up.

    Razvan Breazu:

    Very good. they do a good job. Really good for bedroom studios. At the price of 20£ for 24 tiles it’s a pretty good deal.

  36. 5 out of 5

    Curtis Lander:

    If you need acoustic tiles then I would say its worth buying these, they are exactly as described and are well made.

    When I got mine they had the occasional 1cm by 1cm little gouged bit of foam and there were some extra ridges on the edge of some(Which you could easily pry off), as well as some hanging foam strings which if you peel off strips a very small line of foam off.

    But none of these effect the quality or function of the tiles and I am just as pleased by them, being foam im sure this is the normal condition for machine cut tiles.

    My only real problem which might be independent to me and not to do with the product, was the courier or just way that the foam was sent. It was in a 4 by 2 ft box which looked like it had been rolled down a hill into a flooded field, opened and then re-stuck with the same tape. I was worried that tiles would be missing, damaged or damp as the plastic bag holding them inside the box was also opened and pulled back, fortunately none were missing or damaged.

    S. Braybrooke (Cambs, UK):

    What a stunning difference these panels make….and only £20!

    I had problems in my home studio with stereo imaging and confusing early reflections so I though I would take a punt on these panels. I wasn’t sure where to place them so I read the feature in Sound on Sound (Google acoustic foam placement Sound on Sound) and followed the suggestions. I started with panels behind my monitors. I only used two panels each side and immediately heard a stunning difference in the stereo image. I proceeded to use the “mirror” technique by sitting in my “sweet spot” and looking for reflections of the tweeters in the mirror, and as a result placed 4 panels on each side wal adjacent to the desk, and 6 panels on the ceiling above the desk. The final 6 panels went on the wall behind me.

    You would not believe what an incredible difference these panels have made to my studio. Mastering will now be so much easier! £ for £ these panels are one of the most impressive bits of kit in my studio!

    S. Sloane (London):

    These tiles deaden the sound in a vocal/dj booth so that you don’t get echoes or tinny noises in your recordings. They look great on a wall and you can set them out to make great wall designs. Plus they have a bit of glitter in them for sparkle!!

    Kamran:

    I’ve used various Acoustic foam tiles before at work, I wanted to try something a little cheaper for home and opted for the Comfortex Acoustics Foam, they seem like the are made just as good as the more expensive tiles.

    I have used these in spare room home set up and they are great.

    Alexander Forbes-Fraser:

    Once I had decided to treat my room, I did all the usual things – hit the ‘net for advice and drowned in opinions and maths I didn’t understand.. I ordered a pack of these on a punt (as well as couple of bass taps from the same company.)

    Want I wanted from these tiles was to take some of the “liveliness” out of the room.
    The tiles arrived quickly, and delivered on the promise. I’m sure there are more effective treatments (at higher cost) but these seem to do the job. Also, the bass has tightened a little, and the stereo image is clearer. Happy customer.

    I thought the tiles would be “floppy”, but in fact they’re quite solid and keep shape with a single hanging point.

    Charlie:

    i bought two boxes of these for my drum room/studio as it was just re plastered as i did it out, i cleared the room out and realised that the furniture in the room before was reducing the echo so i bought these and it did just the job, cheap also, they do keep coming off as the adhesive i bought which is linked with the product at the top is not the strongest but it does the job, maybe I’m not putting enough on. I’m actually going to make a vocal sound booth sort of thing with them so when i do that i will update this.

    Mrs j.dale:

    Delivered within a day and came very well packaged. The tiles look great and seriously improve the sound quality in my cinema room. I would recommend this product and company to anyone considering soundproofing a studio or home cinema.

    Matthew Cattermole:

    Coming from a beginner in this field. Used in a simple home studio (in the garage!) these are great at helping to ‘deaden’ the sound. Will be purchasing more in the near future. Can easily recommend them.

    Neil:

    I shall be buying more soon and maybe some bass traps, i am not a professional music producer, i record as a hobby and upload my music, this is highly recommended for the price, cheap and good alternative to spending an absolute fortune on aurelex

  45. 5 out of 5

    KieranD:

    If you’re someone who’s really interested in adapting your skills in music production and just have a small home studio/bedroom etc, then I highly recommend these, they have made my mixes a billion times better, I listened to some of my old stuff and I just think “What the F#1**? How did I think these were any good to show my friends” I’ve noticed, that in my room at least, they’ve really boosted the lows, bass stands out a lot better which makes mixing a LOT easier, and the kick drums, they really help, and they’re really worth it, also, there’s a website you can use that will help tell you how many panels and bass traps you need depending on your room measurements. Just Google search “universal acoustics” and click “Room Kit Calculator” underneath the first link! :)

    It’s inevitable that I’ll be buying more of these, they’re just great!

    Mr. D. Tilley “Dave” (UK):

    I have a home recording studio (back bedroom) and bought these to go behind and sides of the speakers e.g. on a wall to deaden the sound reflections from the speakers. they work perfectly, very please with the results.

    Steve:

    I have bought two lots of these tiles for my small (ex bedroom) studio. They’re very easy to put on the wall with spray adhesive and are cut perfectly so they cover the space very well. Prior to installing them the room had too much echo and lots of frequencies got lost or were mushy. Since instalment the room sounds really good, a brilliant transformation at a very reasonable cost plus quick delivery too!

    You cannot go wrong with these, I made a couple of studio panels and a vocal U-bend. Good quality. Great price for 24 tiles!

    These tiles are superb for the price. I have them on the wall round my home studio and I am thinking about getting some more. They really cut down unwanted reflection.

    They arrived promptly too

    Katalin Kovacs:

    These acoustic foam tiles are great value for money. They muffle the sound nicely from the outside, improve the sound inside the studio, look great and are easy to work with (cut, install). Highly recommended.
