Sound Masking For Privacy


Sound Masking: Protecting Speech Privacy and Reducing Office Noise Distractions

The lack of speech privacy is a top driver of workplace dissatisfaction. Learn how sound masking can help protect speech privacy and reduce office noise distractions.


Offices are full of noises: people talking, printers printing, and fingers typing. All of these noises can be distracting for you, your coworkers, and your customers or clients.

Music can have a positive effect on people’s disposition and give you a chance to set the right mood.

Paging is a powerful tool to allow you to literally talk over the noise if you need to send an important announcement.

Sound masking is low level background noise that masks human speech, so people can focus and be more productive.

Together, these acoustical solutions help make your office a more pleasant and productive place for you and your coworkers to work, and a more inviting place for your clients or potential clients to visit.

Music playback systems, paging systems, and sound masking systems are often separated, which is expensive and inefficient.  These fragmented systems are expensive and inefficient because you are duplicating wiring, devices, and power expenditures.
