Sound Masking

 

As more and more companies clear out cubicle walls to create collaborative workspaces, the pressure is on to maintain privacy and productivity. That’s why MyOffice provides customized sound-masking technologies to help overcome acoustical challenges in your office environment.

Sound masking reduces distracting noises by emitting soft, subtle ambient background sounds through the use of strategically installed speakers, usually in the ceiling. The ambient sound muffles conversations and other noisy distractions to create a more focused, productive workspace for employees.

What is Sound Masking?

Sound masking is the technology we use to achieve speech privacy for a specific area that is plagued by distraction and discomfort.  This is done by adding neutral noise to the background so as to render the distracting noise powerless.  

What are the benefits of sound masking?

Speech privacy and productivity are two key benefits of sound masking. When conversations can be overheard, but not necessarily understood, that’s a speech privacy issue for everyone. Click here to watch an informative video about sound masking.

How does sound masking work?

Adding noise to unwanted noise may seem counter-intuitive, but white noise provides a non-repetitious broad band sound. Because there is no natural pattern, but rather sound at all frequencies, white noise fills in the spectrum to tune out unwanted noise. Click here to watch a video about white noise.

How the VoiceArrest System provides privacy & comfort

The good news is that privacy and comfort are not mutually exclusive. A low-level background sound is produced by speakers placed in the plenum and an adaptive sensor placed in the sector with the speakers that is both adaptive and adjustable. You’ve heard of a smart phone? Well, this is the smart sound masking system in that it anticipates what changes need to be made and adjusts automatically. The sensor measures the disruptive noise and automatically adjusts the volume higher or lower dependent upon the moment’s specific needs.
This system represents sound masking at its best in that it is highly effective all day. *The background noise emitted by the speakers will adapt based on the needs of the work place, fluctuating higher and lower as is necessary.
