Types of Vocal Booths
When it comes to deciding what type of vocal booth is right for
you, the options are many! This is where your own needs and budget
will come into play.
You’ll have to decide if you want something more permanent, or
something that can be transported to a new location. You may need
something that is small and doesn’t take a lot of space, or space
may not be an issue for you.
Sound quality may be the most important factor in your decision, or
it may be price. Here are some of the different types of vocal
booth options that are available to you.
Permanent Vocal Booth
Most of the DIY options we will be looking at today will fall into
this category. A permanent vocal booth will be built once and stay
there. This type of booth will usually provide the highest quality
A permanent booth will usually consist of two separate layers of
sound control. The walls will provide the soundproofing.
This is what stops the unwanted external sounds from getting inside
where the microphone can pick them up. They can also prevent the
sound of your voice from getting out and possible disturbing
The second layer is on the interior of the booth. This is the layer
that is comprised of studio foam, sound panels, fiberglass, or
acoustic blankets. This layer is for sound dampening and is what
stops the reverberations and echos from ruining your recordings.
Modular Vocal Booth
A modular vocal booth is one that is usually purchased. You will
probably assemble it yourself, but it should contain all the
necessary components. These are often semi-portable.
They can be disassembled, and then reassembled at a new location.
If you are worried about the possibility of needing to relocate
your booth, this may be an option for you to consider.
Modular vocal booths are often built with a frame, on which
attaches acoustic blankets. These acoustic blankets are effective
at reducing reverb. Some of the higher quality ones are also
effective at reducing a decent amount of external noise.
However, they will not provide the same degree of noise reduction
as a hard-walled, permanent vocal booth. They also will not provide
the same dampening inside as a booth that is covered with 2”
This type of vocal booth also tends to be quite expensive.
Portable Vocal Booth
If you travel often, or if you don’t want to be tied down to one
specific living space, then a portable vocal booth may be what
you’re looking for. A portable booth will be much smaller than a
permanent booth or a modular one.
A permanent vocal booth usually surrounds the performer. A portable
booth, however, may only surround the performer’s head.
Alternatively, a portable box may surround the microphone instead.
Portable vocal booths are small and lightweight. They will fit in
the back seat of your car for easy transportation. However, they
will usually not offer quite the same recording quality as a
permanent vocal booth, or even a larger modular booth. They can
help to drastically reduce reflections and echos and still be very
useful for a traveling narrator or other similar voice-over
