Soundproofing windows


+1

Treat the window opening as part of the wall cavity and soundproof accordingly. Adding mass will improve the sound proofing of the window as mentioned. I would caution you not to leave any "empty" space in there as you can inadvertently end up with a resonant cavity that could transmit a lot of sound.
