Blocks all sounds?

Like birds chirping

Warning fire bell?

Help?

No thanks.

I was at a conference a few weekends back. The first night in the hotel was great and I slept very well. The second night? The people next door were up talking super load and I didn't get to sleep until well past 3am. I would have really appreciated some sound-blocking building materials then!

Great. The world needs that.
I often say that my bad hearing ain't all bad.
I can take my hearing aid(s) out and put them away.

Will it block tinnitus?

If not, I'm not interested.

Normally ambient noise covers most of it. In absolute silence, the ringing is all I hear and it drives me batsh*t.

I doubt it. Tinnitus is inside your head.

I'll pay a lot for something that blocks the neighbor's barking dogs.

Doesn't a phone call take care of that?

Grrrr...I'd not be happy

Ok, it doesn't appear to be a material that blocks sound. It appears to be a construction of a specific shape that blocks sound transmission through a tube or opening. Significant, but not quite the same thing.

It would be interesting to see if a wall made up of this would block transmission of vibrations through the boundaries as well as the holes...
