There is nothing wrong with playing music, right? However, at the same time you have the right to be protected by being disturbed by loud music or noise when you want to rest.
If you like listening to loud music and you don’t want to have trouble with the authorities and your neighbors at first place, you can easily apply some soundproofing techniques to the place you live. As a result, everyone will be happy.
Playing loud music: When does it get too loud?
It doesn’t take to be a genius to realize when it gets too loud. For example, if you are able to hear the music outside your home, it’s definitely too loud. You definitely want to be a good neighbor and play the music in a way that it can’t be heard outside. Maybe you already know this, but the bass is the thing that causes the trouble the most. Simply lower the bass and you should be good. And if you still want to listen to loud music, think about the following soundproofing techniques.
How to Soundproof Your House
By following these soundproofing techniques, you can ensure your music doesn’t disturb your neighbors. You have to make sure it stays in the house and there are two ways to do it – sound blocking and sound absorption. Let’s take a closer look at them.
Buy a Draft Stopper
Every door needs some space in order to open and close without problems. Sadly, this space will let some music out. And as you can presume, more music will pass through if this gap is larger. Luckily, you can easily fix this with a draft stopper also known as door sweep. Your door will open and close easily, but no noise will leave the house.
Install Dampening Door Seal
Another efficient way to block loud music is by using dampening door seal. It is affordable and easy to get and the best thing is that you can install it on your own. Measure the width and height of the door. Cut the weather-stripping into the right sizes and place them to seal the door and that’s it. However, this isn’t the only way to seal your doors so let’s continue.
Use Soundproofing Curtains and Blankets
Probably one of the best things you can do to make the sound never leave the hose is investing in some soundproofing doors and windows in case you don’t have them already. Normally, our windows and doors have air gaps which make it possible for the sound to leave the house. Sealing all these gaps is what we have to do.
For example, if we need to soundproof our door there are some soundproofing blankets and curtains, we can use. It has been proven that they do the job better than other similar materials. All you have to do is hang them on line standard curtains and the music and the bass will be blocked from leaving the house.
Install Acoustic Foam Panels
If you are building your own home studio you will already know about acoustic foam panels. They are installed on the walls and absorb and reduce the bass vibrations so they don’t pass the walls and at the same time they will make your music sound softer and better.
Use Bass Traps
Another effective way to dampen the sound in your home is using bass traps. These are devices designed to absorb low-frequency noise and the vibrations coming from your music system. They can be installed in the corners of the room to capture the noise coming from your speakers with big power and deep bass and prevent it from going through your walls.
Buy a Good-Quality Music Headset
If all of these soundproofing items seem too much for you, but you still want to enjoy loud music without having trouble with your neighbors a music headset is the right choice for you. Another great thing about them is that they are pretty affordable and there are many you can choose from. However, if you are planning to buy one take care of the following things. You need them to be comfortable and well designed. You can opt for wired or wireless headsets of different sizes and you can easily stay within your budget.
Listen to Your Music at Low Volume
Maybe you don’t want to hear this but try playing your music at low volume. After all you are probably not the only one living in your house, right? Just as we like taking care of our neighbors, we should take care of our family or roommates. However, if you live alone, this doesn’t apply to you.
At The End
You don’t want to be the guy everybody hates because of your loud music. If the night begins at 11 PM you shouldn’t play loud music after that time. After all, it is always better to invest in soundproofing your home or in a good quality music headset and enjoy your loud music than on paying the fines for it. After all, there is no need to have trouble with the authorities or your neighbors.
