You can't. It's not cheap.

Don't fall for the egg carton or pillow thing. It doesn't work.

If you want to totally isolate your room from the outside and properly acoustically treat your room then it will cost you. I say for a start to try and acoustically treat your room you buy a big thick rug and cut it into 6 pieces and place one on every surface (the four walls, floor and ceiling). It won't work a miracle but it will be a start.

Although interestingly, egg cartons do work very well as sound insulation....but only if you fill them with hard-boiled eggs! The jelly-like consistency of cooked egg can actually absorb sound waves quite well.


Entirely true....but unfortunately, completely useless. Sorry

Carpets is the cheapest way. but it makes the room get pretty toasty, especially in a band practice. Just covering the walls in foam helps slightly.

Egg carton does work... But you have to do it right and place it right and if it didnt work, probably because you leave too much gap between the cartons...
What it does is reflect the sound within the egg compartments until it is gone/absorbed... Therefore it does work.. you just have to do it right and sensibly

You'd have to change the eggs when they go bad... such a waste of eggs!

The best way to sound proof a room is to go into another room. If you're in a room far enough away no sound will get into the room you want sound proof.

Problem solved.

No. It doesn't. Cardboard does not absorb soundwaves. Especially not cardboard as thin as an egg carton.

The best thing you can do is some mineral wool isolation.

Egg cartons. Yes they do work to a certain degree if done properly. Or so I hear... My father was in a band in his younger years and he says that's what they used.

But sound proofing doesn't have to be expensive, how many different opitions have you looked into?
I was told by someone that I was emo... and that I needed an emo-like username. Now I find myself laughing at myself.

If you have windows, make some tight fitting window plugs for them and stuff them with foam and whatever else you have around that will absorb sound. Thats what i did and they made a huge difference. Also, for the door you could try and put a mattress right up against it, but i think the only good way to do the door would be putting another door on the other side so theres a small air gap between them, thats how windows are soundproofed

Egg cartons DO NOT WORK! I've taken acoustics classes and I know that the key to sound transmission loss is mass, which is something egg cartons do not have. The only way you can ever make egg cartons work is if you layer a whole bunch on top of each other, creating a thicker and more massive product.
