Easy Installation:
Noise reducing foam requires permanent installation with an adhesive.  If you desire to remove foam from its mounted surface, it can cause excessive damage to walls and ceilings. Unlike noise reducing foam, Audimute noise reducing panels and sound absorption sheets can be installed in a snap, and leave behind only small nail holes when removed.

Durable & Eco-Friendly Design:
Noise reducing foam deteriorates over time.  Noise reducing foam can also harden or crack. Audimute noise reducing panels and sheets are made from all natural, eco-friendly materials and will not deteriorate. Audimute noise reducing panels feature eco-C-tex, the GREENEST acoustics absorption material on the market. Made of a blend of cotton and cellulose fibers (the majority of which is post-consumer recycled newspaper!) noise reducing panels take 1/40 of the energy it takes to produce noise reducing foam! Do something good for your sound and your environment - choose Audimute!

Aesthetics:

Foam that is colored still looks like foam. Audimute noise reducing panels are available in many shapes, colors, and image options.  You can even customize noise reducing panels with your own image or logo for a one-of-a-kind look.  Enhance both the sound and décor of your space!
