Use sound absorbing panel in narration booth : Elimination of muffled sound
Hello, this is Mr.I of Shizuka Co., Ltd..
We received impressions from our customer who set up a simple narration booth in the company.

Even if the general office is renovated to be a narration booth, the office itself is not originally built for sound, so not only will the sound insulation become lower, but it also makes it easy for the sound to echo. Also, by partitioning the room, the volume will decrease and flutter echo will occur more easily.
The customer of this time has made a narration booth inside the soundproofed room. There was sound insulation performance, but the muffled sound of the room was strong. We used our sound absorbing panel “SHIZUKA Stillness Panel” to solve the problem.
The following sentence is the customer’s comments.
“As for the feeling of use, I understood the change of sound absorption of the panel quite clearly.
Although the inside of the soundproof room was a very dead environment, I was concerned about the “muffled sound” of the specific band and the echo of the midrange coming from the floating floor structure (the resonance of the wall?)
when I was recording.
I tried various ways to put the panels. Rather than putting numbers in pieces apart, adjusting the distance between the panel and the narrator was the most effective (just like the picture, installed on the back of the microphone).
You can process the echoed sounds on the desk top and the walls of the soundproof room by placing the panel. I felt that it would lead to good results without miking nervously.”
