I'm surprised that the walls between appartments can be so thin because the fire safety implications are not good.

The bass from loud music can have an effect on balloons, so there may be other benefits to audio camouflage.

Darcynader. This forum is a great teacher, at least it has been for me. How does loud bass music have an effect on balloons? Does it burst them? How, please?

That hasn't happened yet. If they are just lying around, then they start to move around randomly. However, the thing that caught my interest is that they vibrate, which is obviously a terrible inconvenience.

Interesting... but a popper enjoys to pop and in most cases the big boom is a main part of the game if you cancel "the booms" than what's the point having a loon session as a popper without earing the pops?!!! If the situation is so critical I think you have 3 options: 1 check your neighbour's time table so you can have loon play when they're out; 2 invest some money to soundproof a room; 3 the more drastic option, take the chance to move to a more looner friendly environment which in my opinion is the best choice if you really want to enjoy your looning game as a popper!

I only mentioned it as something I've noticed and I agree that people should decide what is most important for them and take action accordingly.

In any case, replacing an instantaneous loud sound with a continuous equally loud sound doesn't seem like a very good strategy for appeasing angry neighbours.

To soundproof a room you need to build a room within a room. That is expensive and needs permission from the landlord. Just putting some foam on the walls does not soundproof a room, it just reduces the echo.

If some asks "what was that loud noise?", why not tell them you popped a balloon?

I think that would be ok for occasional popping but unless you have a party every day it's hard to say that you burst balloons regularly because to non looners would sound a little too odd being balloons generally related to parties or children... and in any case I suppose one cannot stress neighbours with what would be considered annoying nasty noises... only looners or I better say only poppers consider a big boom from a balloon popped nice... what do you think!

I make sure I have balloons up for any occasion - parties, birthdays, anniversaries etc etc

Makes the odd bang just normal - and also helps to explain someone finding a few balloon shards!
