Sound waves consist of high frequency sound waves that can be blocked by earplugs and low frequency sound waves that cannot be blocked by earplugs. High frequency sound waves can be blocked by earplugs because they are small enough to fit into the ear canal. Low frequency sound waves are too big to fit into your ear canal, so they cannot be blocked by earplugs. However, there are some ways to block low frequency sounds.
The best way to block low frequency sounds is with soundproofing material or soundproofing foam. Soundproofing material is placed between two surfaces that emit and receive noise, such as between a wall and a floor in a home or office building or between two walls in an apartment building or house.
The material absorbs all the noise from other rooms or areas so you do not hear them through the walls. Foam is also used for this purpose because it also absorbs noise very well and can be easily cut into any shape needed for any type of space in your home or office building.
You can also purchase special equipment designed specifically for blocking out low frequency sounds such as white noise machines or white noise generators, which produce high-pitched frequencies that mask out lower ones; however, this will only.
