February 4, 2019

Have you every tried to concentrate on writing a proposal while your coworkers discussed their new project? Have you ever tried to get your books balanced with a car alarm going off in the parking lot? Distracting noises can be very frustrating for employees, but what can you really do about it? Well, welcome to the joys of sound masking.

Distractions Are Annoying

The open office has become the norm in the past five years with a lot of companies transforming their offices into open, collaborative spaces. However, with this change came a lot more noise pollution for the workforce. Even a small conversation among coworkers feels like a public speaking event in an open office. This can be very challenging for those involved and those trying to get work done at their own desk.

Speech Privacy is Important

Along with the irritation of being able to hear all of the conversations in the office, you also lose out on a certain level of privacy. Private conversations are a normal part of office life and they can’t always be moved to conference rooms and private offices.

Sometimes Things Can Get Too Quiet

The world we live in is bright, loud, and busy. Though heading out into the wilderness for some peace and quiet sounds nice, what you will quickly realize is that even the great outdoors is bustling with noise. When a room is truly devoid of noise, it bothers most people. After all, we’re used to a certain level of noise. So much so, in fact, that most of us don’t even notice it. Many people even choose to sleep with white noise in the background to put their minds at ease. Sound can certainly be distracting, but so can the absence of sound.

Sound Masking Addresses All Three Potential Problems

Sound masking, as we handle it, is not just white noise. White noise can be quite abrasive and cause issues of its own. What we offer in sound masking integrates seamlessly with your environment and provides masking without intruding on your daily operations.
