What’s the Difference Between Sound Masking and White Noise?

Category: Sound Masking
March 1, 2021

Many modern offices are designed with open concepts, and while open-office spaces are great, they can also lead to an increase in office noise. Hearing everyone in your office talking can distract your employees and lower office efficiency. As someone who’s been providing Maryland businesses with our structured cabling company services for years, we wanted to take some time today to talk about how sound masking and white noise can help your office.

What is Sound Masking?

Sound masking makes a building sound quieter by raising the ambient noise level in your office. When installed correctly sound masking can boost your acoustical environment and return serenity to your office space. Our systems emit frequencies that are matched to the frequencies of human voices. These frequencies will mask other conversations across the office, allowing you to focus on your own conversation.

What is White Noise?

White noise is a sound that is produced by combining multiple frequencies together, which creates a high pitch whistling type sound. White noise can mask other sounds in your office but can also be distracting in its own right. Talk with a Maryland structured cabling company to find out whether sound masking or white noise is right for your business.

Give Your Office Piece of Mind Again

The modern world is loud and confusing, but you need to try and keep these confusions and distractions out of your office. You may be surprised by just how much more effective your employees will be with a sound masking system in your office, but it shouldn’t come as a surprise. Take your office to the next level with a structured cabling sound masking system.
