    It's most likely s foam core covered with that cloth surface.
    Typical office style partition, not unlike what you see with many office cubicles...this just has a more simple design and support structure.

    It's not going do more than hanging a blanket would do, though it will look a little cleaner/neater.
    Only problem is...it's too low for vocals...so you then have to jury-rig it up higher, and that might be a PITA.

    What's the price on that in USD...I'm not use what currency they are using on that website?

    Ah yeh that was the Korean site (where I'm living). It's about 100 USD I believe - probably a little less in the US stores. Either way, it's double the price of the first one. If it's not going to make much if a difference, I'll probably go for the first one as it's cheaper and collapsible. Won't hold my breath for anything spectacular though!

    Both are designed to quiet a noisy slap echo sounding room full of hard surfaces and make it more pleasant to work or live in. It's not really going to soundproof. It would make a living room or office nicer to work in but thats about it. Could also make the home cinema room a little better if your not too fussy.

    I would not count on much db reduction as it's not a sound proofing solution. It could help with room acoustics in a bad room but is more designed to make your office or lounge sound better and quieter due to the reduction of slap echos and reflections.

    Why don't you use soundproof room dividers. These are a series of sliding folding room divider systems, including a series of flat panels (each up to 1220mm), hinged together to form a flush appearance when closed. The sliding sound proof room dividers are manipulated on a ceiling-mounted track system.
