Soundproofing bedroom
« on: March 28, 2013, 05:59:54 PM »
Hi,

I know basically nothing about soundproofing so I hope what I'm wanting is possible and you can help me.

I like in an apartment with 2 other people and I like to play games late and use voice chat but the sound of me talking and my keyboard is disturbing for them.

Is there a way I can prevent any sound from leaving my room at a semi-reasonable cost? I don't own the place so replacing walls, etc isn't really an option.

Thanks!

Use a piece of our foam mat under your keyboard.

and replace your door if hollow, if solid core refer to this link to seal the door for sound.

Thanks! I'll do these things you suggested.
Is there anything I can do with the walls? I've seen some portable cloth things I can hang on the wall. Do you know how effective these are?

Thanks

take care of impact of the keyboard and the weakest area (the door) after this is done you can reassess the noise issue and determine how much reduction you achieved then we can look at how much more you need (if any) then we can make a recommendation...because you rent it is not that easy to treat walls.
let me know how much reduction you get and if you need more.
