How to treat a low, reflective ceiling?

I have a dedicated listening room in the basement of our home. It measures about 19(L) x 14(W) but with a ceiling height that is (mostly) less than 7 feet. The walls are gyprock (single layer) and the floor is cement with a good underpad and carpet. I have decided to add another layer of gyprock to the walls, in an attempt to improve the bass response, but I also want to add some absorptive material to the ceiling. My criteria would include: 1) significant reduction of upper midband and high frequency reflection; 2) not too expensive, particularly since I don't know if I will like the result; 3) appearance should not be too distracting - in other words, reasonably attractive; 4) easy to attach to a gyprock ceiling.

Can anyone suggest a commercial or home-made product that would meet my criteria? Thank you!
