Sound travelling through the air and through the vibration of walls and floors and ceilings is very difficult to stop. If there was a cheap AND effective solution then we in the trade would be all over it as an answer to our prayers. Unfortunately there's a lot of truth in the saying"you get what you pay for". Cheap soundproofing isn't effective. Effective soundproofing isn't cheap. Studio grade soundproofing costs about $5000 per square yard and involves building decoupled walls, ceilings and floors. DIY soundproofing is about half as effective. But even that comes in at $100 per square yard just for materials. It is also a major build project just like remodeling a house. Nothing beats the cheapest solution of not producing loud noise in the first place. Gaming headphones are by far the best and lowest cost solution.

You can stop high-frequency sounds with insulation and hanging cargo-blankets on walls. But low frequency sounds are an explosion of air that will rattle the walls like a drum. People on the other side of the wall will get to 'enjoy' the sound as well. Unless you can add channels and build a 'room within a room' by adding extra dense sheet rock all around, you really cannot soundproof your room.
