Sound Masking

With sound masking, your office will enjoy a higher level of focus (and therefore increased productivity)—and if you work in an environment where confidentiality is important, you can
reduce conversational exposure, too.

How Sound Masking Works

Similar to the white noise you might hear from a fan, sound masking is specifically designed to dilute the distraction power of the human voice. It doesn’t cancel sound or completely eliminate all noise in your environment, but it does require you to be closer to the person who’s talking in order to really hear them. Anyone who’s outside that radius won’t be distracted by your conversation because they simply won’t be able to understand it.

Not Just White Noise

If you tried to use white noise for sound masking, you would have to turn it up so loud that it would be incredibly irritating to anyone in the vicinity. It might obscure the words of anyone nearby, but the effect wouldn’t be very impactful because it’s not designed to do something like that.

Sound masking, on the other hand, is engineered specifically to match the sound frequencies of human speech and should be totally comfortable for anyone in the area. In fact, when it’s done properly, sound masking is so subtle that it just sort of fades into the background.
