The baby bass eater with a big appetite

tdd587, 01.08.2017
I ordered a pair of HOFA Baby traps into my stereo / home cinema room with keeping in mind that I have multiple possible target locations for them and wanted to try them placed both vertically and horizontally. The unit is very well packed, a bit heavier than expected, but also looks much better than expected. The product is very well refined, e.g. under the fabric part around there is a strong wireframe (like a fishnet) so the integrity of the unit is well protected from accidental kicks or children for example. The interior is a puzzle for me as the weight of the two units I received differs by 2.3kg, which is strange, but I doubt it really affects the performance.

Regarding the performance, I am happy to report that the official measurements can be reproduced at home as well. The good news is that putting a single Baby trap into a corner (cursed with multiple room modes) it can reach as low as 25Hz (in the time domain). Above that, it starts performing better and better, filling in the dips a bit as well in the frequency domain. I am not saying a single unit solves the room modes, but it clearly affects them all, so the fact that it is easily measurable and visible on the waterfall should give you some goosebumps already. For this price and size, I think this is excellent.

The other thing I wanted to measure is if I can affect an SBIR anomaly (a nasty peak around 55Hz) along a wall with a single unit already. Well it could nicely, but given the free space consumption (the column would reach out 43cm from the wall), this application is not feasible for me.

Pros: even a single baby trap placed correctly can affect a room mode down to 25Hz a bit, above that it starts performing very well, can fill in the dips in the frequency range as well, the build of the unit is very robust, the look & feel is very good (if you like round shapes), official measurements available regarding its performance (down to 50Hz), good low-mid-high absorption balance, very good price/performance ratio

Cons: ordered two pieces, one of them shipped as 10kg the other one is 12.3kg, the 23% variation in the shipping weight raises question regarding the interior of the units, there is either a 50cm (baby) or a 100cm height option, I would be really happy with something in between, say around 70cm or with some height customization option (for an extra price of course), the round shape takes a lot of space in the corner (compared to a super chunk bass trap) or along a wall (compared to a flat but still thick bass panel)

Verdict: for this price with this performance the only question is how many more should I order. Probably I will skip the normal size and will order more baby ones because of flexibility.

Top product and great design

Philipp545, 31.08.2015
The Hofa Basstraps are not only functional but also visually appealing!
I use two as tripods for shelf speakers and one is converted as a side table. They help a room acoustically "dry". In order to dampen the whole deep bass sensibly, however, 3 baby traps are not sufficient. (I also use corner absorbers).
