DIY acoustic panels

This time I'll show you some acoustic panels I've made.
The various panels makes a sort of DIY vocal-boot, for my modest home studio.

But first:
Sound-clips talks, bullshit walks

Room without treatment:

and, with acoustic panels:

The pros of doing it like this are:
1) It's rather cheap
2) It's removable. Setup/down-time is like 10min. So ideal for a multi-function room.
3) Works quite well

So, here are some pictures

This is the room with no treatment.
Low ceiling (189cm), wood panels
and large corners for bass buildup.
