I work with a production company in Minneapolis and they want to purchase a voice over booth for their new office. I'll be the one doing the recording so I certainly have a vested interest in this thing. Our current office has a massive (overly constructed) VO booth that I built and it works quite well. But, we're moving to new offices for the next 12-18 months before buying a new building. So, in the mean time we need a very good VO booth that is easy to setup and then torn down and transported a year from now. We can't do a build-out in the new office space for various reasons.
I'm thinking either the double walled Whisper Room, something by GK Acoustics, Industrial Acoustics, or similar. The prices for the new booths are about $10-$13,000 for a 6x6, double wall, with ventilation, window, and door.
So....my question.... Does anyone have or use one of these rooms on a regular basis and can offer words of wisdom on how well they actually work? I've heard the Whisper Rooms sound boxy and don't cut out that much noise. Is that the case? To reduce the boxy sound I'm thinking a bunch of acoustic foam added to the inside. How much do they really cut down on outside noise bleeding in?
We will be in a fairly small and somewhat quiet office environment with only 3-4 people working in the area of the VO booth.
If anyone knows of one of these booths for sale anywhere in the country and has some experience with them I would love to hear about it!
