Soundskins Vs. Dynamat

Do Not Be Fooled. They Actually Do Not Soundproof

You have probably had a debate with your local mechanics or with friends about some of the common sound deadening materials Soundskin and Dynamat but always left wondering which of these does a better job right?

Like I earlier mentioned in this article there’s a very big difference between soundproofing versus sound deadening/ sound conditioning. If you’re only interested in soundproofing materials for cars or home, I’d recommend you to read this article. Soundskins and Dynamat are only effective in sound conditioning and does little job in blocking out external sounds. (Swear no one has told you this).

What is Sound Conditioning / Deadening?

Sound deadening makes the car interior quiet, reduce road noise, vibrations, reverberations, rattles, and echoes. In return, you will reduce road noise and heat inside your car and also improve the stereo quality.

Imagine a situation when you can whisper to your passengers without those annoying rattles or listen to your stereo in clarity? This is what is achieved by sound deadening. In this article, I am going to compare two famously known car deadening products and highlight one that is best for you.

Soundskins And Dynamat Overview

Below is a detailed overview of each of the company, headquarters, and some bits of information about the brand and the products offered.

Soundskins

A look at Soundskins website, I discovered that the Australian based company was founded in 2015. I couldn’t find the about page, but I guess it’s because it’s a new company. Its products are available here in the United States and other countries including France, Mexico, Canada, Australia, South Africa, and New Zealand,

The brand’s products use high-quality butyl and foam which are both heatproof, waterproof and durable as well and come with a self-adhesive coat so you won’t need any glue during the installation process.

SoundSkins Pro review

Soundskins pro is a combination of three layers of foil, acoustic foam and rubber butyl. This custom blends ensures vibrations reductions, improve heat insulation and loss of sound thus reducing road noise and enhancing the performance of your car stereo.

The product is available in 11 square feet a size large enough to cover two sedan doors.

  • Offers heat insulation benefits
  • It’s affordable

  • SoundSkins Lite Mega Kit (Covers 4 doors, 44 sq ft.)
  • SoundSkins Rings 2 Door Kit (Covers one pair of speakers)

  • SoundSkins Pro Door Kit (Covers 1 door, 11 sp ft.)
  • SoundSkins Rings 4 Door Kit (Covers two pair of speakers)
  • SoundSkins Pro Mega Kit (Covers 4 doors, 44 sq ft.)

Installation process

Do you remember the day you ordered something online, and you could not figure out how it is used or installed despite having an instruction manual? You got frustrated, wasted hours trying to figure it out only to end up hiring a professional to do the job for you?

Soundskins products are easy to install unlike Dynamite products reviewed below. You will not need to spend hours on YouTube watching the installation process- as its installation process is simple and clear.

Dynamat Review

Dynamat is a privately owned company based in Hamilton, Ohio. Founded in 1989, (pretty old..huh) it isan established brand, recognized by many for its high-quality products. It provides products to prevent unwanted noises and vibrations not only in cars but also for home appliances, computers, and home acoustics.

Dynamat Xtreme Review

One of the popular products from this brand is the Dynamat extreme. It is a super thin, sticky butyl rubber that is bonded with aluminum alloy skin formulated with Vector Chemistry to make it one of the most efficient sound dampening materials available. It is relatively easy to install, and the heavy aluminum and butyl rubber will stretch and contour better compared to any other product on the market.

Dynamat versus Soundskins Comparison

Now let’s see how the two products compare and the winner in each case. Features we will compare are ease of installationproduct sizethicknessefficiency, and the price tag.

Ease of installation

As a rule of thumb, if you are doing a DIY soundproofing project, the installation process should give you a headache especially if you are a beginner. When it comes to installation sound skins are easier to install compared to Dynamat. If you are a beginner, I would recommend Soundskins, but you can try Dynamat products if you are willing to spend a couple of hours on YouTube watching tutorials guides.

Product size

Sound deadening products are available in different sizes. If you are tight on budget and you want a larger piece, sound skins is the way to go. While they are available in 11 sq ft sizes while Dynamat are in 36 sq ft sizes, they are affordable.

But overall, Dynamat is the clear winner in this case because it is available in a bigger size though the prices may vary.

Thickness

If you want to enjoy the full benefits of soundproofing, then the material thickness should be a top priority because the thicker the material, the better it is in soundproofing.

Soundskins only weighs 7.7 pounds and has a thickness of 0.059” while Dynamat mat weighs 15 pounds and its 0.069” thick.

It is true that Dynamat is a clear winner in this case, but the fact is that you will not notice a significant difference at, probably you will not notice any difference at all- since the two products are sound deadening materials and not soundproofing materials.

Efficiency and Price tag

These two products are effective in getting the job done. They are water resistant, heatproof, soundproof, have a self-adhesive side and durable.

I guess you already know that price at times determines the quality of a product right?

In the case of Dynamat, you will only spend 2-3 dollars per sq ft and almost the same price for sound skins of the same size.

Conclusion

That’s it for today; I hope you find my review helpful. According to the above comparison, it is evident that there is no clear winner, but Dynamat gets a slight advantage because it offers a variety of products and it is an already established brand- has developed trust over the decades. Other than car sound deadening, you can read my articles on home soundproofing.

Jan Achenbach
Acoustics and soundproofing are not the primary consideration in the blueprint of an architectural project. Nobody notices any issue until the building is occupied with real people living there: until babies start to cry or until a wannabee teenage rocker becomes your neighbor. Likewise, the same issue happens in companies, where offices are deployed in large clear spaces: in one room, there is a meeting, and in the open space, employees are providing support to customers by phone. Therefore, unluckily, most of the solutions, are aftermarket solutions. It is difficult to implement them after the project is handed over. I explain thoroughly soundproofing projects that you can do at home or in your business.
