    What product is good to silence noise?

    Handymen

    My youngest son is neurodivergent and is very sensitive to loud noises. Do you know of any good products that he could use to silence the noise, perhaps good noise-cancelling headphones? Any recommendations would be appreciated.

    "Hi,
    the Bose 35 II.
    these are good expensive but you only get what you pay for.
    try eBay to get a cheaper pair."

    "Hi
    I have a similar issue within my family. I found the following very good if you want a small device: Sony WF-1000XM4
    And then if you want an over-ear product, I tried Sennheiser Momentum Wireless (3.0) for a family member and they were highly rated.

    Both these products are readily available on the market - try John Lewis as the first port of call

    Hope that helps"

    "A good set of Peltor ear defenders should help. Very popular with people on gun ranges (shotguns and rifles), eliminating the majority of the high level noise."

    "Noise-cancelling headphones can help but they are only a temporary solution to a constant issue that your son is dealing with. Please seek the advice of an audiologist for medical solutions and advice. As for home-based solutions, below are my recommendations.

    You can acoustically treat his bedroom to dampen disturbing sounds and unwanted reverberation. Budget permitting, you could acoustically treat the lounge and hallway etc too. Acoustic treatment is to control the reflection of sound, making rooms sound less chaotic and more controlled, think of how a library sounds.
    Soundproofing is another solution, this requires building a room within a room with acoustic absorption materials and air between the walls, ceilings and floors in order to block noise from entering the room. It is the more expensive route to go but the most effective.

    There are many ways to acoustically treat a room but be sure to get advice from someone with acoustics knowledge to assist you, don't fall for silly things like egg boxes on walls and similar myths, they do not work and are simply horrible looking dust collectors.

    I can gladly assist you should you need advice as I have built high-end professional recording studios and made highly effective acoustic panels."
