Choosing the Best Sound Absorption Foam: A Comprehensive Guide

Are you in the market for sound absorption foam, but have no idea where to start? With so many options available, it can be overwhelming to choose the best one to meet your needs. In this article, we’ll take you through everything you need to know to make an informed decision when purchasing sound absorption foam.

Where to Buy Sound Absorption Foam

While you can purchase sound absorption foam from a brick-and-mortar store, buying it online is often a better option. Online foam suppliers typically offer a wider range of products and brands, as well as better deals and higher quality foam. Additionally, purchasing from industry specialists like Hush Echo means you’ll get expert advice and the best solution for your needs.

Factors to Consider Before Purchasing Sound Absorption Foam

When shopping for acoustic foam, there are several factors you should consider before making a purchase:

Panel Size and Count

The number and size of panels you need depend on the size of your room. Larger panels have a greater effect than smaller ones, so if you want to cover more space, it’s best to go for larger panels. Typical sound absorption foam comes in packs of 6 panels, 12 panels, and 24 panels that measure 30 cm and 50 cm .

Thickness and Density

Panels come in various thicknesses, ranging from 2.5 cm to 10 cm. Thinner panels are ideal for managing mid- and high-frequency range, while thicker panels are more effective at eliminating low-frequency ranges. At Hush Echo, our panels are mostly 5 cm and thicker, with 7.6 cm panels that absorb all frequency levels and 10 cm panels that eliminate even the lowest frequencies. It is also important to understand the differences between styrofoam and acoustic foam when making a decision.


The design of your acoustic foam panels affects how they absorb sound waves. There are various shapes and designs available, so it’s important to choose the one that meets your needs and aesthetic preferences. 

Price Points

When shopping for sound absorption foam, it’s important to weigh quality against price. At Hush Echo, we offer competitive prices and unparalleled quality to ensure you get the best value for your money.
