Timber Acoustic Panels Vs Acoustic Foams


Have you ever been in a position where you had to eliminate sound reflections, the fluttering echoes and the disturbance caused due to the noise around your space. If you have, then you definitely have caught yourself indecisive with acoustic panels or acoustic foam panels. It is indeed a very hard pick for anyone who is uninformed which is why, we feel, this article is exactly for you to arrive at a smoother and precise decision.

Although both the products have their pros and cons, Timber acoustic panels are more preferable than any other acoustic foams.

How? Let’s break it down to you:

While both of these products goal is to improve the sound quality of the room by removing residual sound, acoustic foam is really truly effective at absorbing sounds at high frequencies, that being said, if you have trouble with mid-high frequencies, flutter echo, sound bouncing on walls or bass, then your foam most likely will not greatly improve your sound situation, while Timber acoustic panels not only reduce flutter echo and sound bouncing but are equally effective at high-mid-frequencies and bass as well. These panels are constructed using a much denser core material which works with a smooth broadband absorption which means it will absorb all frequencies and make a noticeable difference right away.

This is the reason most professionals prefer acoustic panels for their recording studios, home theatres, music studios over acoustic foams. Additionally, Timber acoustic sound absorbing panels help in controlling standing wave reflections over all frequencies creating a balanced sounding room that is ideal for recording and mixing audio. This concept goes for any space requiring less reverberation or unwanted noise.

1- High thermal efficiency, which means that, once you cover your whole room with Timber acoustic wall panels, it will save you a whole lot of money.

Your room will be much warmer and will stay that way for a reasonably long time during the winter. Your energy bills will be lower, and, therefore, you are saving money.
