Spray foam is great for air-sealing and insulating, but there are better options for making a building quieter.

Options include screwing unglued subflooring down, acoustically sealing seams and gaps, and installing a sound-mitigating ceiling below.
Special mounts, acoustic blankets, and properly sized barriers are all part of the solution.
