In a room with bare, reflective surfaces, sound bounces back and forth, distorting direct sound and serving to drastically diminish our listening experience.
Felt Right tiles have an NRC (Noise Reduction Coefficient) of .35 and can absorb as much sound as one-inch thick polyurethane foam, a popular sound dampening material. In other words, installing Felt Right tiles on a single wall of your living or working space will noticeably improve the overall acoustical experience.
