Well here's something else to consider. At the very least you can look at some nice technical graphs, and get a good read out of the links. Interesting. Does this make up for the previous lack of consideration for the thread here?
I'll quote the entire post.
Well that above link I left for people seems very steep in shipping, at least to me in Canada, so in the course of digging around and running on instinct I managed to find this. With all the talk of Silverstone dampener, This looks a bit better. Apparently they developed it themselves, and patent details are available on request, as it says in the small print.
Nice thing about this is that it's not simply a rebranded product, so you know at least who made it and what it is. And there's no unnecessary price hike for no reason.
Disclaimer:I have yet to buy some of this to try.No idea how it is.
Also for anyone who cares, there's big fancy colorful professional GRAPHS from testing.
Everybody in here likes the graphs, right.
Check it out. If you will notice from the various links, there are a few versions.
- Big Blocks for space filling ( not very applicable in headphones ) and some egg cratey type with larger surface area
- 2 layer stuff various thicknesses
- new 3 layer stuff in 3 thicknesses, 7, 12, 13 mm respectively. The 7 and 12 seem the most available.
This 3 layer has the denser layer in the center decoupled from the mounting surface.
A really interesting read.
Here's the manufacturer: in one of those links there's a tech specs link.
http://www.acoustiproducts.com/en/materials.asp general overview a graph or two, and some details about its composition.
http://www.acoustiproducts.us/en/acoustipack-extra-s.asp this is the single sheet . notice down at the bottom left there is sellers list for US/Canada
here's the North American Distributor, also a seller: See the nice graphs.
http://www.quietpcusa.com/AcoustiML-OEM-3-Layer-69-13mm-Soundproofing-Materials-P563C69.aspx this is for the bulk OEM stuff large quantities.
Be aware there is both 2 and 3 layer stuff when looking, various thicknesses.
For instance the "EXTRA" single sheets come both in 12mm and 7mm.They are 18"by 17" I think.
I read a review that said this stuff has some heft to it.
Gonna try some soon ,hopefully, unless I miraculously come up with a stunning DIY Cheapo solution. Maybe someone's already tried it?
