Similarly, how can I soundproof my basement ceiling without drywall? Soundproof Basement Ceiling Without Drywall (i.e. Open Basement Ceiling)

Herein, should I soundproof my basement ceiling?
Soundproofing the basement ceiling is the best way to reduce noise transfer from the basement to the rooms above and noise from above into the basement. Sound can be airborne or impact noise. An unfinished ceiling with exposed joists does little to reduce sound transfer.
What type of insulation is best for soundproofing?
Insulation. Loosely packed fiber provides excellent sound absorption, which is a factor in soundproofing, albeit a minor one. Standard fiberglass insulation is as effective as mineral wool, and much less costly. Foams give great thermal insulation but are actually poor for soundproofing.
