Universal Acoustics foam tiles claims relatively average frequency absorbtion with NRC 0,85 and density of 30kg/m3.
Vicoustics foam tiles aren’t as good as other manufacturers, but they are a little more stylish. The 0,5 NRC Cinema Round tiles have a flat absorbtion above 500Hz, which is as expected. Interestingly, the MD55 Light tiles have a non-flat…
Auralex Acoustics makes a few foam panels of different thickness and colours. The 33kg/m3 100mm tiles has an NRC of 1,1 and a flat frequence absorbtion above 300Hz.
Hofa Akustik makes some quite stylish absorbers and basstraps in a variety of colours. At 200Hz, the Basotect material used is claimed by BASF to absorb rougly 50% at 200Hz, and 100% at 500Hz. I’ve found material claiming both better…
Well-renowned EQ Acoustics manufactures some wedge absorbtion tiles with NRC 0,85, which makes them fairly average in performance. A few different colours are available as well. They also provide some larger, flat, tiles made out of quite dense 63kg/m3 fibreglass…
Adam Hall is a well-renowned manufacturer providing a medium density foam absorber at 23kg/m3.
The Thomann t.akustik CBT-37 foam basstrap has no specification at all, but using a bathroom scale I estimate their density to roughly 20kg/m3. This makes them the lightest and cheapest traps I’ve found.
The Thomann t.akustik range of foam absorber tiles, are Thomann-branded, budget material. The only specification given for the HiLo tiles, is their density; At 16,5kg/m3, the material is the lightest material I’ve found, which I believe cases poor performance. It…
