The sellers say it’s good for blocking sound, and that’s all fine and good, but you know the best part of the Danbocchi Personal Soundproof Cardboard Studio is that you’ll finally have your own little retreat to get away from everyone. Just call it your ‘Dr. Who argument you’re being ridiculous I’ll be in my box’ box.
The Danbocchi Personal Soundproof Cardboard Studio, first and foremost, is made to dampen sound. If you want to have a party (of one) and crank your music to the max, you can just hunker down into the box and turn it up. The box lowers the volume of sound that can be heard from the outside by up to 30 dB, so your flatmates and neighbors will be considerably less ticked off. Also, there’s a little table in there, so you can set up your mini-bar for your party of one. You know what, this is kinda sounding fun, after all.
For your convenience, there is also a hole for cables, so your little retreat doesn’t end up being a sensory deprivation chamber once all of your gadgets give up the battery ghost. Also, vents, so you can breathe. That’s big. That’s a big one. Glad they threw that one in there.
The Danbocchi Personal Soundproof Cardboard Studio also costs just about as much as going to a summer retreat or something – $884, plus another $196 for international shipping from the wonderful world of Japan.
