Sound proofing in Stairwell

I have in issue with sound coming up the stairs from the finished basement. I am thinking of putting acoustic tiles up at the bottom of the stairs. Does anyone know if this will help or better ideas?

Welcome to the forums.

Soundproofing is nearly impossible but there are things you can do to mitigate some of the noise. Is there a door on the stairs at all? Carpet on the treads?

Sometimes noise will funnel up a staircase a door at the top or bottom helps the most.
