Personally I have never really noticed a major difference in the sound of boards but I suppose I have never really been listening out for it, I think it might be more to do with what the board is mounted to but others might have picked up on something I have missed? are you mounted directly to wall or in a cabinet or freestander? You could try putting a carpet tile behind the board to see if it helps deaden the sound any.

everyone who has used the One80 Rotafix bracket says it greatly reduces the sound made when your darts hit the board.
might be worth trying one as they are only around £9

I installed a One80 Rotafix for turning my board and didn't know that it reduced noise as well. It was off-putting when I started throwing darts at the board again. They made virtually no sound compared to what happened before. Brilliant.

+1 on the thought that how the board is mounted probably contributes more to how noisy it is than the board itself. I’ve got a couple layers of corrugated cardboard and one layer of closed-cell rubber foam padding between my board and the wall and it’s as quiet as anything I’ve ever seen before. The board is a ~25 year-old Winmau round wire board, so it’s real “old school” and certainly not “high-tech” or any kind of sound-suppressing.

As mentioned already it is how the board is mounted. I have mine in a cabinet and every dart makes a thunk hitting the board. Which I like!

I know that the way the board is mounted is most important regarding to what kind of noise the board makes. But when you mount all board the same you can hear the difference. I thought maybe someone has tried out a few different boards and noticed a difference in their "noisiness".

For example someone told me that the One80 Gladiator is a lof more quiet than the Blade 4.

i would guess that the harder the board the quieter it is likely to be. on that basis i would think the bulls advantage 3 or shot bandit plus should be fairly quiet, but mounting is the thing that will make the big difference.

So it's a "shock absorber." I wonder if it reduces bounce outs as well.

would not have thought it would make any difference on that score, but they definitely advertise it's anti vibration / sound reducing properties.
