While double pane windows do stop a little more noise than single pane windows, in a noisy environment, you will hardly notice the difference between double and single pane windows.
The insulation values in double pane windows are much better than single pane windows but does little for sounds. In a double pane windows, the two pieces of glass are coupled within the same frame and vibrate together – like the two tynes of a tuning fork. This makes the noise at that frequency nearly “invisible” to the glass and allows the noise rushes through.
The only effective way to soundproof windows is to install a second set of windows. There are many ways to do this and the results can vary a huge amount.
