Acoustic Terms and Definitions: Baffle or Sound Baffle

Baffle or sound baffle is a construction or device which reduces the strength (level) of airborne sound. Sound baffles are a fundamental tool of noise mitigation, the practice of minimizing noise pollution or reverberation. Sound baffles are applied to walls and ceilings in building interiors to absorb sound energy and thus lessen reverberation.
