Hi, this picture is actually somebody else's work. I had it in this ideabook to show my client what not to do. The squares that are mounted to the wall are "acoustic foam" panels. They capture (absorb) high frequency sound to reduce the amount of reverb in the room. They make the room feel less "noisy" but have no effect on how soundproof the room is. There are several makes and models sold online by amazon or the big music gear retailers. If this was my client's home studio, I would have made more of an effort to cover up the inexpensive foam with fabric frames for a more appealing look. Also, if the project budget allows, I can build a 3D CAD model that can predict the room's acoustic performance and confirms how many absorbers the room needs and where they should be placed. Hope this helps, sorry for the late reply. --david
