Two test stands for determining sound insulation in the frequency range above 5 kHz were made. One consisted of two horizontally adjacent reverberation rooms and a special source of high frequency sounds and ultrasounds. The other test stand consisted of a miniaturized test chamber and a special source of ultrasounds. The paper presents results of the preliminary measurements of sound insulation properties of different barriers in the frequency range above 5 kHz.
