How We Test Sound Absorbers and Sound Blockers
Sometimes the effect soundproofing materials have on a room can feel a bit like magic. Now you hear it, now you don’t. At Soundproof Cow, it’s our goal to make your soundproofing project as snag-free as possible, which is why we love this “feels like magic” effect so much, and why we spend so much time testing each of our sound absorbers and blockers to make sure they’re tip-top before they get to you.
