Adding a drop ceiling to Ht. Which ceiling panels to buy?

Hi.

I am finally upgrading to Dolby Atmos and adding a suspended drop ceiling to my room downstairs.
I would like to go with a 2x2 black grid with black tiles to help with light control.

Which tiles do you guys recommend?
I was going to go with the Armstrong 1728BL tiles from Lowes but they have some mixed reviews about the QC and the smell. I really don't want to have to repaint them black or replace some due to broken corners?

Anyone have these or other you can recommend? --> https://www.lowes.com/pd/Armstrong-C...Tiles/50246699

Thanks guys!

I use a drywall tile wrapped in Vinyl, which i painted black. I purchased them from a local store. One thing I like about it, is it adds more mass and the only noise I get that goes into the room above is deep bass. I do have insulation above the ceiling. The downside to that is they are reflective in nature and taking them down and putting in are a little harder as there is no give to them.
