Remove the attached underlayment and use my own?

Q: I’m interested in using FloorMuffler or cork as an underlayment but the Pergo 10mm laminates I like happen to have an attached thin foam underlayment already. Should I just remove the attached underlayment and use my own? I’m going for a solid, non-hollow feel and sound. Thanks for your time!

A: I would definitely not remove the foam from the Pergo flooring. This is meant to slow moisture transfer, while cork helps lessen noise transfer.
