Optional Features of WhisperRoom Sound Isolation Booths
For your convenience, below is a list of optional features for our sound isolation booths.
Optional features are additional and are priced separately. Check out the optional features price list in our Product Catalog for more information.
This low-profile desk is designed to help you maximize your workspace. Two USB outlets and two 120-volt outlets are conveniently attached to the desk so you can plug right in.
The 30″ wide red oak desk is preattached to a backing panel with adjustable hinges. This gives you the flexibility to fold the desk down and make more space in the booth when you decide not to use it.
The desk can be installed on the inside or outside of your WhisperRoom™.
Our new HEPA filter is easily installed on any WhisperRoom. The unique design allows the ventilation to maintain airflow while blocking out unwanted particles in your booth.
HEPA filters are incredibly effective at capturing viruses, bacteria, pollen, mold, and more.
Note: Includes an additional replacement filter.
Audimute Fabric Acoustic Panels
Fabric Acoustic Panels make it easy to incorporate acoustics into your décor. Whether it’s for home or work, you’re sure to find a solution to match your needs with Audimute.
These panels were designed with large-scale applications and high-traffic spaces in mind, ideal for schools and commercial spaces. Each panel is custom cut and wrapped in your fabric choice for a tight border without using a metal frame. This straight edge fabric finish makes it easy to butt panels next to each other to build your acoustic design to any size.
• Hand-assembled in the USA
• Eco-friendly construction
• Excellent acoustic absorption properties – NRC .95
• Fire safe materials – class A fire rated (ASTM E-84)
• Thickness: 1.5″ – Size: 2′ x 4′

The Acoustic Package offers a versatile and cost-effective solution, allowing every WhisperRoom user to effortlessly craft their desired interior acoustical environment. Its core aim is to elevate sound quality and control within the enclosure.
Through sound wave absorption and diffusion, the panels effectively minimize undesired reflections, echo, and reverberation. The outcome is a serene and acoustically refined environment that ensures optimal sound conditions. Each Acoustic Package includes a carefully chosen assortment of the following Audimute panel sizes:
• 1′ x 2′ Fabric Acoustic Panels
• 1′ x 4′ Fabric Acoustic Panels
• 2′ x 4′ Fabric Acoustic Panels
Note: Models vary – some include all three panel sizes, while others have two. This ensures tailored acoustics for each WhisperRoom model.
The ADA Package includes the following components needed to allow easy accessibility for people with disabilities: a 32” wide door opening, a 1:12 ratio ramp, a door handle operable with a closed fist, a raised floor, our new “no threshold” door design, and each of the seven available sizes has at least a five-foot interior space for wheelchair maneuverability.
All ADA Package sizes will be available in both our single-wall (Standard) and double-wall (Enhanced) versions and will provide comparable noise reduction.
Note: The 2010 Americans with Disabilities Act standards which apply to state & local governments, public accommodations, and commercial facilities state that “the 2010 Standards apply to fixed or built-in elements of buildings, structures, site improvements, and pedestrian routes or vehicular ways located on-site.” Because the WhisperRoom is neither built-in or a fixed element/structure, there is no technical requirement for the WhisperRoom to comply with the 2010 ADA standards.
Note: Must be specified at initial order.
MJP – Multi Jack Panel
The Multi Jack Panel is a standalone optional feature that can be installed on your WhisperRoom after it is assembled. It is a prewired, jack-panel insert consisting of 2 USB jacks, 4 XLR jacks, and 6 – ¼” stereo phono jacks.
Simply just thread the cables through a cable passage to reach the interior box. This feature is great for audiometric applications.
Note: Additional XLR to ¼” adapters are available at an additional cost.
The Caster Plate feature is an additional floor component with wheels to aid in the mobility of a WhisperRoom™. The Caster Plate also provides a substantial amount of downward noise control.
It adds additional mass in the downward direction and provides a 4″ air buffer below the WhisperRoom. This feature is highly recommended for applications where low-end, structurally transmitted noise is a problem.
Note: This option adds five (5) inches to the overall height of a unit and may be purchased at any time. For ease of assembly, however, it is recommended that the Caster Plate is purchased during the initial order.
An optional exterior step is now available for situations that require an optional Caster Plate. The step provides a comfortable transition when stepping up into and down out of the WhisperRoom.
It is highly recommended that the step be used in conjunction with the optional Caster Plate.
Isolation Enhancement Package
Some applications may require a greater level of noise reduction than what is offered by a Standard “S” or Single-Wall WhisperRoom. To accommodate this, Standard units have been pre-configured to allow for the installation of a full set of secondary isolation components.
These secondary component packages are referred to as Isolation Enhancement Packages (IEP). A Standard model with an IEP is referred to as an Enhanced “E” model or Double-Wall.
The Standard, Single-Wall typically isolates about 50% within mid-range frequencies, and the Enhanced, Double-Wall typically isolates about 75% within the same mid-range frequencies. WhisperRooms work in conjunction with the host-room walls to further isolate sound.
Isolation Enhancement Package Floor
The IEP floor is a 5/16″ duracoustic mat made of recycled rubber that is included in the Enhanced models or IEP upgrades. It is installed on the floor underneath the WhisperRoom™ floor and provides additional isolation.
The IEP floor can be purchased for Standard rooms and also is recommended if there is a possibility of upgrading to an Enhanced model at any point in time.
Other than size, the design is the same as that of a door window. Each glass unit consists of multiple layers of 1/4″ laminated safety glass separated by an air buffer(s). Safety glass is used because of its superior noise reduction capabilities, and its safety features; if broken, it will not shatter.
A window does not reduce the noise reduction capability of a WhisperRoom; however, it does increase the
amount of interior reflective surface area. An additional cable passage plug is located at the base of each window component.
*26-Inch wide windows are only available for 42, 60, 84, and 102 Series Models.
*32-Inch wide windows are only available for 48, 72, and 96 Series Models.

As with all WhisperRoom™ features, the optional Studio Light series provides maximum flexibility. Dual light systems, LED puck lights for general lighting, and multicolored LED lights for mood/ambiance are both incorporated into this unique design.
The Studio Lights create no noise or heat and can easily be adjusted for desired brightness. Additionally, the multicolored lights can be set to a single color or alternating colors, as well as a variety of other functions using a remote control, which is included.
The Studio Lights, in conjunction with the numerous interior acoustical foam colors now available, provide limitless possibilities. The size and quantity of the Studio Lights included with each booth are determined by the size of the WhisperRoom™.
Any WhisperRoom™ with a 5′ wall or larger can be configured with a Wide-Access Door upgrade. This upgrade is perfect for applications that require the passage of large items into and out of the WhisperRoom™. A ramp system is also available for wheelchair access.
Wide-Access Doors include a 16″ x 48″ window.
Note: Must be specified at initial order
The WhisperRoom™ is designed to permit installation in residences and facilities with standard ceiling heights (approximately 8′). However, when additional height is required for equipment or application-specific needs, a 10″ height extension upgrade is available.
Note: Prior to placing your order you should ensure that the host room ceiling height will permit the installation of the Height Extension. Must be specified at initial order.
Ventilation Silencing System
Standard WhisperRoom™ Ventilation Systems are quiet. However, the airflow noise (running at 80 CFM) is still slightly audible inside of a WhisperRoom™ sound isolation booth. This noise can be eliminated by the installation of a VSS. The number of VSS units needed depends on the size of the WhisperRoom™ model.
One VSS is required for each Standard Ventilation System.
Each VSS consists of two additional exhaust ducts, with hoses and adapters, linked inline between the standard exhaust duct and the remote fan unit (RFU).
Note: May be ordered at any time.
Exterior Fan Silencer
Exterior ventilation fans have a 38dB noise rating. This slight noise can be eliminated by positioning each fan into an Exterior Fan Silencer (EFS).
The number of EFS units needed depends on the size of the WhisperRoom™ and the number of ventilation systems required. This option may be required when a more controlled sound environment is needed in the host room.
Note: May be ordered and installed at any time.
LENRD® Bass Traps
Control low frequencies inside your WhisperRoom™ with LENRD® Bass Traps. These top-of-the-line bass traps are designed to dampen low-frequency sound energy and help you attain a flatter low frequency inside your booth.
Bass traps substantial enough to control nodes have always been expensive to buy, or too intricate and time-consuming to build, but not anymore! LENRD® Bass Traps are extremely effective at smoothing out low-frequency room nodes at an affordable price.
Acoustic Studio Foam (Auralex®)
Each model comes with enough Auralex® acoustical foam to cover about 1/3 of the interior. Each sheet is 2′ x 4′ and 2″ thick and attaches to the interior with Velcro®. This allows the user to customize the interior acoustics to suit their needs.
The foam can easily be added to or removed from the WhisperRoom for applications where a more “dead” or “live” environment is desired.
The entire interior surface of each WhisperRoom ceiling component and the base of the door is covered with pre-attached acoustical foam wrapped with cloth.
Foam Sheets for the ATP are pre-cut 1’ x 2’ with Velcro® attached.
As requirements change, some clients may find that they need a larger isolation enclosure than their original needs dictated. To accommodate this occurrence, expansion packages are available for most WhisperRooms.
Any unit that is large enough to have two ceiling and floor components can be expanded in one direction. There are multiple options for the length of each expansion. Contact a product representative for your options.
Each expansion package includes additional walls, one ceiling, one floor, and seam seals used to construct the larger booth. Some expansion packages will also include a ventilation set.
- Series 60, 84, 102: expandable by 18 inches and 42 inches
- Series 72 and 96: expandable by 24 inches and 48 inches
