      Has anyone sound proofed their bedroom at all? I'm looking to do 2 dry walls, a window and a floor. Protection from children, tv's, people talking, etc.

      Has anyone done this, and if so, how much did it cost?

      Thx!

      Long duration of low audio
      I sound proofed my bedroom windows using 3 inch custom made sound barriers. I almost sound proofed my floor but didn't need to in the end. This place is where I get all my sound proofing materials. They have stuff for walls and underneath flooring.

      Hey everyone!

      How does one soundproof a bedroom - from outdoors and indoors noise?

      I have one window in the bedroom.

      I need to live as comfortably as possible.

      All suggestions and advice welcome, thank you!

      Why wasn't @another sean's advice good enough from before?

      Just buy soundproofing material and install it. Or have a professional do it for you. There are shops out there.

      Sorry I forgot to add, it's within a disability budget. Thx.

      I’d recommend posting on a forum like gearslutz.com where audio engineers, producers, and musicians who treat their rooms and may have hacks they can recommend to reduce cost will be more abundant. Definitely explain your situation with hyperacusis. I’d probably include more specific details about your room like the dimensions, location of the door, window and anything else you may think is relevant. I’d give them a number on your budget not just say it’s on a disability budget. Calculations can’t really be done without a number.

      Not gonna lie to you, quality soundproofing is expensive. You may not be able to achieve the level of reduction you’re looking for without spending quite a bit.
