There is too much echo within the space. Would soundproofing help control the noise?

You will need to consider installation acoustic absorbent treatment to the ceiling and or walls. This will reduce the reflections and make intelligibility of sounds much clearer.

Soundproofing is any means of reducing the sound pressure with respect to a specified sound source and receptor (noise control).

There are several basic approaches to reducing sound: increasing the distance between source and receiver, using noise barriers to block or absorb the energy of the sound waves, using damping structures such as sound baffles, or using active antinoise sound generators.

Soundproofing affects sound in two different ways: noise reduction and noise absorption. Noise reduction simply blocks the passage of sound waves through the use of distance and intervening objects in the sound path. Noise absorption operates by transforming the sound wave. Noise absorption involves suppressing.

The damping characteristics of the materials it is made out of are important in noise absorption, echoes, reverberation, resonance and reflection. The wetness or moisture level in a medium can also reflect sound waves, significantly reducing and distorting the sound travelling through it, making moisture an important factor in soundproofing.
