Not only can you use this at home, but you can bring this vocal booth anywhere! You will produce more crisp & clear vocals after constructing this simple portable vocal booth.


  • 12” x 12” x 24” cardboard box (or similar)
  • 3M adhesive squares or spray adhesive
  • Tape
  • Scissors
  • Acoustic foam - approx 5 sq ft

Step 1: Construct the box by taping one side of the cardboard box shut. You can also use a box cutter to cut off additional flaps if desired. I left my box flaps on so it can be closed when not in use (to keep my cats out LOL).

Step 2: Cut acoustic foam panels down to size using scissors. For the 12” x 12” x 24” cardboard box I had to cut one wedge off of each side piece, and two wedges off of the top piece.

Step 3: Install acoustic foam inside of the box. Use spray adhesive or 3M adhesive squares to adhere foam to back, sides, and top of the box inside.

Step 4: Set up your mic inside of the box.

It’s that easy!

Boxes can be purchased at local packaging stores or big box stores. You might even be able to use one that is sitting around your house. 

SoundAssured 1" acoustic foam is shown in picture. One six pack is all you need.

Best of luck! Please contact us with any questions at all.
