Need to implement sound masking with Help from a seasoned Sound Masking Company in Massachusetts?
Sound masking is the addition of an unobtrusive background sound, similar to airflow, to reduce the intelligibility of human speech and reduce distractions. The resulting environment leads to greater productivity and increased privacy and comfort.
Office workers in a 2011 study cited overheard conversation as their biggest complaint when they were working without an office sound masking system in place. While many people can get used to many office noises, some find it nearly impossible to disregard intelligible humans speech. Without a sound masking system, human speech can be intelligible up to 50 feet away.

Private Office Sound Masking:
Private offices and other enclosed spaces, might provide visual privacy but do a poor job of office sound masking. Your walls might be a lightweight material or extend only to the ceiling tiles and not all the way to the ceiling deck. If your office is built like this, you have experienced overhearing other peoples conversations and finding yourself distracted by noise beyond your walls.
