Let them know that it is unfortunate that the walls are so thin, and that you and your roommates are doing the best you can to try to keep the noise down. If it would help, invite them over while you are making noise at "normal levels" so they can see that you're not going overboard with the noise. If they're expecting you to speak in hushed tones all the time, fuck them, they can move if they don't like the construction of the building.

Also, there are tons upon tons of places online to buy acoustic treatment

It's going to be pricey though, and you'll pretty much need to treat the entire ceiling if you're going to go that route.
