    noise dampening covers - Do they work

    Does anyone here use those noise dampening covers? I was thinking about getting them but I don't know if it's a waste.

    One brand name I saw was 'Akasa Acoustic Absorbtion Mats"
    Sounds good but I don't know.

    Here is a link for the test -

    Sound absorption mats can work.
    Results will vary as usual, depending on brand and such...

    i'm actually using those sound absorption mats...but they're pretty much useless...there's no significant difference with the sound output from waste of $20...i only kept them b/c i don't want to leave behind a sticky mess when i remove them...
    better idea would be to invest in quieter fans...which is what i did...
