I wanna ask,
how should a door for studio be in order to have a better sound isolation?

how thick?
what's the material?

as I am now using a solid wood door,
with about 1.6 inch thick.

I have use some rubber material, trying to seal the edge of the door.
However, the leakage is extremely serious. I think that should be the matter of the door itself. :(

Please help thanks.

baffle it as much as possible so it's a tight fit, have a tight threshold under it...if possible, ad a second door in front of will provide a bass trap between the two doors.

Well a solid wood door is good, or a heavy fill core door. but the tight fit of the doors is the key. and the door jam itself may be the leaking. If the drywall isn't set in and finished tightly it can leak that way as well.
