Treating a room with Acoustic Roxul Safe and Sound can help reduce middle frequency echos. But controlling bass FZ will cost about 10 thousand dollars. So just buy some cool Beats headphones /joke.
Working with the Roxul isn't bad but it can get a little messy, also there are report of the material smelling bad if it gets wet. So don't get it wet.

There is some confusion about the term "rigid fiberglass" because it is not really rigid like a piece of wood or hard plastic. Rather, the term rigid is used to differentiate products such as 703 from the fluffy fiberglass commonly used for home insulation. Rigid fiberglass is made of the same material as regular fiberglass, but it is woven and compressed to reduce its size and increase its density. Rigid fiberglass that is one inch thick contains about the same amount of raw material as 3 to 6 inches of regular fiberglass. The photo below shows a piece of 703 one inch thick folded slightly. As you can see, it is rigid enough that it doesn't flop over when not supported (right side of photo), but not so rigid that it can't be bent or squeezed.

703 "rigid" fiberglass is not really very rigid.
Now that you know what rigid fiberglass is, where the heck do you buy it? You probably won't find it at your local hardware store or lumber yard, but many insulation suppliers stock it or can order it. Start by looking in your telephone directory under Insulation and also Heating / Air Conditioning Suppliers. You can find the name of an Owens-Corning dealer near you by calling 800-GET-PINK (800-438-7465) or from the Locator page on the Owens-Corning web site. Other companies, such as Knauf, Armstrong, and Delta, make similar products, and they often cost less than fiberglass from Owens-Corning. You can contact them directly to find a distributor near you. In the interest of completeness, here are some other manufacturers that make similar products: Johns-Manville, CertainTeed, Roxul, Ottawa Fibre, and Fibrex. Top
