Sound Masking

Sound Masking is a technique whereby a specific background noise is introduced into an environment, so as to cover up or mask unwanted sound. The unwanted sound is masked with a soothing or less intrusive sound. This soothing background sound is often described as sounding like air blowing through a heating or air conditioning ventilation system.


The background sound comes from an electronic noise generator, which is calibrated and optimized to match the acoustics of the space and the type of sound to be masked. It is then amplified through distributed speakers that are strategically installed throughout the area. Sound Masking reduces or eliminates the awareness of existing sounds in a given area and often makes the work environment more relaxing.


Sound Masking is often used for enhancing speech privacy so that workers are less distracted by nearby conversations. The speech intelligibility of remote conversations declines with the increase in sound masking volume, thereby increasing concentration and productivity among workers.


These systems can be used almost anywhere to ensure speech privacy inside and outside of sensitive areas such as: call centers, conference rooms, consultation rooms, open office spaces, reception areas, waiting rooms, etc. Call today for more info!
