Just as an experiment I put my ear against my floor. Can hear banging and dropping object sound very clearly .

Does this mean the dropping object sound when I don't put my ear against the wall is coming from Downstairs?

Sometimes it might be from even higher up.

Recently dealt with noise that originated from 3 floors up.

Apologies..that device is for recording vibration.
For noise..there are some vendor but now covid- short of technician.
The supplier will set up at night n record 12 hours, say 8 pm to 8 am
The recordings are very expensive, they charged around $400+ per day per recording. I hesitated to engage them, because my lawyer said that if the recording is only done for 1 or 2 days, it not enough to charge these idiots, unless the recordings are done over a period of time, say 10-30 days.

The "CiKA" morons (tenants) above me, stomps every morning 6-7.30am. They knew you can't catch them because the cost and time spent is too tedious.

What kind of noise and do you live in hdb?
Rhythmic thumping noise, caused by a small boy skipping ropes in the morning. Thankfully it stopped after my wife and I went up separately to speak to that tenant family twice within 2-3 weeks.

Private condo.

IC, was wondering why the below unit did not make the complain
I actually went up floor by floor to talk to my neighbours, and the one right below said he could hear it. He even correctly guessed that it was rope-skipping.

He didn't do anything about it though.

Several times a week, for about 20 minutes between 7am and 7.30am.

It has stopped since the last time we spoke to them a month ago.

Wow! Mine was the unit below mine. Their kid would jump from high places everyday at night from 7pm to 9pm. After that continue jumping at the room till 10pm. It get worst during the weekend, the kid can jump the whole day. Luckily they stop when we talked to them.

Not only that the unit above mine love to stomp around the house and dropping things. Not sure what they drop but sounds like something heavy. Talked to them but said its not them, weird thing is whenever the footsteps stop that is where the heavy dropped sound is. Its get annoying since the loud noise is sudden.

Same here. Exact same case. Asked them and they denied. Really wish the upstairs neighbor will die now
