Flooring-- Underlayment for Noise Isolation -Sound deadending-- Cork or Eco Ultra Qui


Hi I'm in a condo with someone above me.

They're really loud so I'm suggesting Underlayments.

Their plan is to install Laminate over their old Laminate-- which isn't how I would do it but sounds fine because I feel the thicker their floor the less noise for me.

Anyways what do you think is better for sound deadening?

FloorMaster (from homedpt laims STC 74 and ICC 74)
or
Eco-Ultra Queit (which makes claims of SSTC 73 and ICC 73 )
or
Cork 1/4 inch (which is thicker, but I don't know what actual sound deadening it produces) (I've seen online ICC 61)
Cork 1/2 Inch (??? any issues with it this thick?)


They're in stock around me and I need to but something in stock so I can give to these loud mofos above me since they're doing their floors soon

ACtually from what I'm reading it's hard to really estimate these ratings cuz they're all skewed by different types of subfloor.

So in all your experiences with flooring for sound deadening what do ya'll think is best for reducing noise from walking/impact above unit to below unit.
