How Sound Masking Systems Work and When They Are Beneficial to Your Business?

Have you ever been in a situation where you were trying to have a conversation with someone in a crowded place? Perhaps you were at an assembly, a conference room, a restaurant, an entertainment/amusement center, etc. You may have noticed that you have trouble hearing the person you are speaking to, or even overhearing other conversations. Regardless of the situation, you are in, no one wants to be in an overwhelming environment where they may not be able to hear the person they are speaking with, or even hear themselves! Thanks to sound masking systems, these problems will become a thing of the past. 

You may be asking yourself, what is a sound masking system and how does it work? Sound masking systems are conducted through loudspeakers that are installed in a different pattern that distributes background sound. Sound masking generates sound into an open environment to mask the unwanted noise in the room. Although masking sound is not an active noise control, it does an amazing job of reducing, or even eliminating the perception of the sound and may significantly reduce unwanted background conversations. 

Some benefits of sound masking systems are:  

  • You may find it easier to focus on your tasks in the workplace while also being able to collaborate with others if needed. 
  • It raises ambient sound levels in your environment by emitting the right about of acoustically optimized masking noise.
  • It increases your ability to stay focused even while in a busy room or open floor plan.
  • It may make people feel more comfortable discussing private information in a public environment.

Unlike white noise, sound masking is more pleasing while people try to get work done or are out in public. Sound masking may even boost productivity in a working environment and make people feel more comfortable overall.
