Underlayment question

Going to be putting laminate in basement in the next few months.

The laminate I purchased does not have any underlayment attached. I have also bought DeltaFL plastic underlayment.

I know I need a cushion-y layer in between, which of these 2 options is "better" (it's the Canadian HD site):


The black product claims to be "2 in 1" but I can't really figure out what the 2 layers are. That one is cheaper psf, however, I also noticed it's thinner.

Any advice? If I choose one over the other, will i need to buy another product to pair with it?

I also noticed other "underlayment" products on the website that are cheaper psf but maybe they don't check off all the boxes?

This was the Roberts product that is specifically for basements, you dont want any felt down there!

What does the manufacturer tell you to use?
