How useful can it be to cover a room with acoustic panels to isolate external noise?

Hi, I'm moving and I need to cover at least 25db in a study room, I wanted to know if this can be a momentary solution until I can soundproof it.


Thanks in advance, greetings.

    Acoustic panels are generally used to control noise within a room - ie to cut down reflections and the reverberation times. They may improve background noise but so much depends on the construction of the property, the proximity to noise sources and the sound frequencies involved  eg a wooden hut next to a railway line or a brick box in the middle of a field. Sealing air paths and areas such as windows will be far more effective - eg hanging heavy lined curtains will usually make a bigger difference.
