You bring up a very good point, encorp. Thanks for bringing that to my attention. The FT01 is a very quiet case, but of course, I have no way to prove that it is due to the dampening foam on the side panels. I am definitely not a sound engineer, but will ask for specifications on any foam for future reviews. We'll be in touch on that for the next one
