Perfect for a home studio
Kristian2622, 03.01.2016
Application: home studio (a single room 6x3 meters which needs to be acoustically almost dead)

For a while, I couldn?t decide whether to go for these panels or a larger 1x1 meter version. I'm glad I went for 1x0.5 meter model.

For one thing, they're cheaper per square meter.

Also, a smaller panel is easier to maneuver into position on the wall, is less prone to bend under it's own weight and, last by not least, gives you more freedom in planning where to put them onto your studio walls.

These panels are very light but, at the same time, they're also sturdy and do not bend - it makes application very easy.

As for the acoustic properties - there were terrible reflections in the room even with all the furniture and carpets in place. A normal conversation echoed all around, every sneeze was 'amplified'.

After I attached 8 panels (6 on one long wall, 2 on the wall opposite + 7 pieces of small EQ Acoustics Classic Wedge 30 tiles), most of the reflections were gone. Sure, I still need to do something about the ceiling and the wall behind the speakers.

These are cheap but great quality acoustic foam panels - they do the job, they reduce (eliminate?) reflections, they contain the sound in the room and improve the acoustic properties.

It's likely that a professional would find them inadequate for a professional studio. But most of us are just keen amateurs - for our studios, these panels will do the right job for a great price.

An interesting note: the panels may appear to be of different shades of gray when looked at from an angle. This is an optical illusion caused by the way the panels are cut and formed. Turn one panel upside-down and you'll see they're perfectly matching.

I suggest that you align the panels before you glue them to the wall to make sure they appear to have the same color.

I used Thomann's t.akustik Contact Glue to attach them to the wall.

Does the job
MattWatson, 02.06.2020
Can't complain too much, does what it says on the tin, only very, minor, slight thing is that the cuts are a little wonky, but that's if I'm being overly critical. Other than that, great product.

Good

Helped getting rid of reverb in my room, they are very good for the price but I would recommend on purchasing the thicker versions for even stronger absorb.

Not Bad, Not Great
Sennn, 01.05.2020
This absorber is for High Frequencies which is why I bought it for my bedroom I had some bad reflections in my room, these did somewhat help, I can't complain either for the price but these aren't a permant solution.
