I was looking for sound reducing curtains, as my new apartment is next to a busy street. What I thought i was purchasing was a panel pair. When it arrived, it was a single panel. I called the Overstock rep, who apologized, and gave me an RMA. I returned the single panel, and then a new, single panel arrived, instead of the pair. At this point, I was frustrated and cancelled the order. Also, after seeing the product, it seemed very lightweight to be doing any significant sound absorbing, even though the company claimed 40% sound reduction. After reading the fine print in the specs, it says that the noise reduction is 40% more than a comparison open-weave curtain. That means, if the comparison curtain stops 1% of the sound, this curtain will stop 1.40% of the sound.; i.e.., letting through 98.60 vs. 99.00%. This is very different than their ad which claims that they stop 40% of noise. It does function as a black-out curtain, but not as a noise-reducing curtain, which takes mass to do effectively.
