Does anyone have any experience with Fiberglass or ECOSE absorption material? I purchased the Primacoustic London kit 12 that I have sitting opened box but debating if I should send it all back and go GIK Acoustic instead. The California Proposition 65 label on the Primacoustic kit has seem to be questionable if these panels are even safe to use that contains Ethylbenzene. I see GIK Acoustic uses ECOSE. How safe is ECOSE? is it safer than Fiberglass? Which material would last the longest?

Building insulation type materials were never designed to be used as an acoustic tool. They were designed to keep your room warm and cold. They do not provide the proper rates and levels of absorption for music and voice.

Thanks for the info. That’s interesting because a lot of professionals use those same materials esp many Grammy award winning Mastering Engineers. I’m actually the same guy that left comment on You tube about the ECOSE question. I ended up going with GIK Acoustics but takes two months to ship. I discovered that Rupert Neve himself used some of GIK Acoustics stuff. What are the safest absorption . materials out there? Do I send you photos of my room for the analysis or how does that work?

Fill out the information in this link. https://www.acousticfields.com…..-analysis/ If Rupert knew of our technology, he would have chosen us.
