I was able to buy just two tiles. The price was considerably higher per tile than the ones I'd bought elsewhere online, however I only needed two more and the other company only sold them in cases of 50.

How well do these dampen noise?

I am using these tiles in my basement which is insulated around the walls, so I wasn't planning on putting any insulation above them. Will these still sufficiently dampen the noise like regular foam panels?

Hello and thank you for your interest in our products. Acoustic control is often seen as the main feature of a ceiling panel. The actual acoustical control provided by traditional mineral board, or “acoustic” ceiling tiles, is less than many believe. Although mineral board ceiling tiles have higher acoustical control than a drywall ceiling, marketers positioned mineral board tiles as “acoustic ceiling tiles” as a product differentiators in order to sell more tiles. Other important ceiling tile product features that also need to be considered in any drop ceiling are aesthetics, reflectivity, indoor air quality, durability and sustainability. Acoustical control can be addressed in many ways other than ceiling tiles. For example, a carpeted floor is significantly more effective at absorbing sound than most ceiling tiles. Textile wall treatments and drapes also have a significant acoustic deadening effect.

Answer: 
The panels are solid PVC so they won't be as effective as your foam panels.. I have these in my drop ceiling, with a carpeted floor and I don't notice any noise issues. Then again, I don't throw any wild parties.
Unless you have a tiled floor, I don't think you'll have a problem with noise.

Hello and thank you for your interest in our product. Yes the Genesis Smooth Pro Ceiling tiles do require a grid system for installation. The panels are designed to go into either a suspended grid system or a surface mount. Please feel free to contact our customer care team at 800.434.3750 for further troubleshooting. Thank you!

Customer Reviews

2 ft. x 2 ft. Smooth Pro Lay-in Ceiling Tile is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 35.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Ceiling Tile Alterntive These tiles are great to work with as they fall nicely into place and are easily trimmed to size by scoring using a box cutter and then snapping them. You can also use a Skil saw or jig saw but it's a little messier. I particularly like that they don't absorb any moisture. My basement was a little damp and the old tiles left a musty smell. There are two minor downsides. The tiles are a little expensive and because they are plastic they are subject to static electricity so dust and hair clings to them. However I just wiped them down with a damp cloth and once they're up it's no longer a problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice looking and practical I like these tiles a lot better than the thinner ones that have a pattern molded in. These are thick enough to be sturdy, and I think they will be impervious to anything that can happen to them - water leakage from the floor above, or smoke, grease and grime in the kitchen. You can wash these without worrying about bend marks, as you'd have to with the eggshell-thin styles. These look plain, clean, and kind of professional in a kitchen ceiling grid.

The tiles are just right for bathroom suspended ceilings since they do not absorb moisture and do not mold or discolor. Storage before installation should be on a flat surface to prevent them from becoming out of plane. They are easy to cut with a saw (hand or power) or by scoring and snapping.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to Work With I'm a female senior citizen who enjoys handyman (woman) projects. This tile was easy to work with. Only needed a utility knife to cut tiles to fit into our bathroom drop ceiling. Though I would have preferred a tile with some design, I thought this was best for a small room. I was able to do the job myself and didn't need my husband's assistance. The tiles are not flimsy and a lot cleaner to work with then the usual drop ceiling tiles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product for High Humidity Used this in my basement bathroom after a leak in the upstairs bathroom buckled the drywalled ceiling. I was looking for a removable ceiling in case of future leaks or maintenance needs. A suspended ceiling seemed like the first choice, but I had not encountered tiles that would hold up to the humidity in a small bathroom with low ceilings. I knew they would all eventually sag and/or mold. I had considered laminating FRP to plywwood and cutting down to use as tiles. Then I came across these tiles on-line, and they seemed to be what I had been looking for. Hate buying things without handling them first, but gave these a try. My bathroom is small, so tile cost was not a big issue, although I could see it being an issue on full basements. Seems like they could be a couple dollars cheaper. Tiles were just as described. They cut VERY easy with a straight edge and utility knife. Score well and snap. I used with a Ceiling Max plastic grid system for added ceiling height and the tiles worked great. Note that this version is a plain smooth white finish, maybe a little too "sterile" or "commercial" like for some, but I would think the textured versions would be a good choice for better aesthetics in a living area. If you haven't already figured it out, tiles are thin compared to regular ceiling tiles, about like thickness of corrugated cardboard. I used a 2 x 2 grid layout and see no issues arising from sagging in the future. Overall, did a nice looking, durable, removable and humidity resistant ceiling. I would definitely recommend to others with this need.
