Finding a suitable flooring material for Wood frame Condo building

I'm looking to get hardwood flooring in a wood frame condo building (e.g., wood between the floors). Currently the HOA only approves carpet for bedrooms and living areas b/c of the sound transmission of tested hardwood floors. So I'm trying to find if there is a product that will be able to get approved.

I'm sure this is not the first time someone has had this issue. Does anyone have any approved underlayments that reduce the sound sufficiently to be approved by their HOA? If this is the wrong forum, if you could recommend a possible source where I could find such a solution, that would be much appreciated.

Thanks in Advance.

Natural Cork brand cork flooring makes a floating floor with cork on the top and bottom, sandwiching a traditional HDF core typical of laminate flooring.

It's quiet, and as easy to install as laminate and performs well.
