Top critical review
Reviewed in the United States on November 10, 2018
I relied on the review stating the following:
"I live in the first floor of a NYC building. Everyone that enters the building passes through my door and that includes the tenants, delivery people, friends and family. The front door also made a lot of noise specially because i’m Right by it. After I installed this on my door it blocked the sound of people walking and talking by my door by 90%, I still can hear the door but it’s so Suttle now that it doesn’t bother me."
However, this was not the case with me at all - and apparently I am attracting comments highly defensive know-it-alls since my negative review is the most popular now. This is what happened in my situation:
I lived in a building with pipes that are banging endlessly in my wall. My landlord will do nothing, even though it is a extremely loud and irritating. I had to hear hammering noises at 50-60 decibels. The pipes are behind drywall, so that is the first barrier. Then, I carefully cut and nailed this product to the drywall. It did nothing whatsoever, even though I previously called a soundproofing company before ordering this expensive product and spending hours installing it - to ask if this would help (they said it would be moderate but not 0 - and it wasn't even 1 decibel less).
All it did was create the need for me to have to get the whole section patched and painted when I took it off a few weeks later. It was so heavy and annoying, I regret buying it completely.
10 years ago I bought mass loaded vinyl for my HVAC and laundry closet, to make it quieter when I was sitting in my living room. That was the adhesive kind. It also did nothing.
Anyway, the know-it-all sound experts are now going nuts in the comments below my review - despite the fact they seem to be ignoring all the other negative reviews and not explaining how it magically worked for this guy in his NYC apartment who I relied upon before purchasing.
