On the 200 cm side you will find 8 grommets that you can use for easy installation. The grommets have a nickel colour with a hole diameter of 1.27 cm.
Producer's choice sound blankets are filled with non-toxic recycled fibres made from a blend of cotton and polyester and thanks to this unique filling they have a great ability to absorb sound in a wide range of frequencies. Surface material is a high quality solid polyester fabric.
Using producer's choice sound blankets is the cheapest and most reliable way to enhance the sound when recording with a microphone, improve speech intelligibility when communicating, or turn down the sound coming from your drum kit by reducing reverb.
As you can see in the top graph, when the blanket is hang straight, the absorption from 400Hz is 0.8NRC which means that the producer's choice sound blankets absorb 80% of the sound.
If you install the sound blanket hang pleated with 15cm waves, you achieve an even higher sound absorption of 0.95NRC from 300Hz.
If you wanted the same results with acoustic foam you would have to use full acoustic foam 7cm wide or acoustic foam with needles at least 12cm high and these are much more expensive options and need to be permanently glued to the wall!
Suitable for DJ and production studios
Producer's choice sound blankets are a great way to turn an empty room into a good sounding studio for DJs or music production very cheaply and quickly.
It's also a very good and cheap way to create a barrier against the noise that comes from a drum kit, loud singing, playing a musical instrument and so on, simply to relieve your neighbours or the people in the next room, but here it is worth remembering, that sound blankets are not soundproof but absorb sound so that it does not reflect further, this makes the sound you hear or record with a microphone much more detailed and clearer and therefore when the sound is absorbed less of that sound passes further through the wall.
Great for video and film
In case you are recording interviews, movies or any video where spoken word, musical instruments or singing is recorded, you need to record this sound as best as possible and especially without reverberation of the space and for this sound blankets are perfect because you can easily take them with you on every shoot as they can be easily folded, You can easily unfold them or hang them on stands, which are usually everywhere during filming, and you will significantly improve the sound of the video, which will get a professional touch.
You can also use the producer's choice sound blanket as a light reflective board, shine the key light directly on the white side of the blanket and it gives you even softer light. Or place sound blanket with the white side next to you to create reflective surface and then you don't have to use another light called (fill light).
When filming there are usually a lot of lights everywhere, but sometimes you need to absorb the light from a certain direction or create a darker space where the monitors will be and for this you can also use our double-sided black sound blanket, which beautifully absorbs the light from a given direction and at the same time significantly improves the acoustics of the shooting space.
Blackout and soundproofing
You can also use the producer's choice sound blanket as a high quality window blackout, which also reduces outdoor noise by up to 10dB.
Suitable for office use
These sound blankets are also useful for use in offices and commercial spaces, as the reduction of reverberation and significantly improves speech intelligibility, so you will be able to understand your client much better. You can put the blankets on the wall or if you have high ceilings you can hang them from the ceiling.
Acoustic solutions for large spaces
And last but not least, sound blankets can be used in large halls to reduce reverberation and create a comfortable space for recording or reproducing music, singing, spoken word, etc., because thanks to their high efficiency and low cost you can cover large spaces and create good acoustics cheaply and quickly. You can simply hang the large multi-meter panels from the ceiling or screw them to the walls of doors etc.
As you can see, there are a lot of options for using the producer's choice branded sound blankets from VocalBoothToGo.com and it's definitely a much better and cheaper way than using acoustic foam.
If you want to achieve even better results we recommend leaving a gap of approximately 8 cm between the wall and the sound blanket, this air gap will make them even more effective (we have screw hooks specifically designed for this purpose).
The producer's choice sound blankets can be washed in a regular washing machine that can wash at least 8Kg of laundry. This means you don't have to deal with taking off dust in fixed installations. You just take the blanket off, throw it in the washing machine and hang it up again. (you can't do that with acoustic foam stuck to the wall)
Sound blankets have parallel stitching approximately 5 cm apart. This allows the inside fibers to expand and make the blanket thicker, also keep its shape and the filling does not move inside. If you buy the version, with one side white and other side black, the stitching is white thread.
NOTE: When you first receive the acoustic blanket, it might appear thin. That is because they are pressed to expel all the air out of them in order to reduce the shipping volume and save your money on shipping. To restore the thickness – take them to a laundromat and tumble dry it at high heat for about 12-15 minutes. The sound blanket will come out about three times as thick as they were before. Also, they will expand naturally over time but tumble dry makes this faster.

Please note: VocalBoothToGo sound blankets (acoustic blankets) are utility products specifically designed for functionality, you may find slight imperfections that do not affect their sound absorption capacity. Examples may be the material which might have folds and crevices in the stitching, the dimensions might be 5 -6 cm off the advertised dimensions, binding might be folded when stitched and minor needle marks on the material can be expected. Also, please be aware that the blankets are not “soundproof” they are „sound absorptive”, meaning that the sound loses its energy while going through the blanket. Covering reflective walls will block reverberation and reduce overall sound energy in recording studio.
