What is Sound Masking?
Sound masking is the addition of noise to an area. This introduction of ambient background sound to an area reduces noise distractions and makes it easier for employees to concentrate on the task at hand.
In a traditional office environment, sound masking makes it where those that are sitting outside of a conference room are unable to hear what’s happening in the room. In a home office environment, sound masking can assist with blurring out the noises from your spouse or children working or playing in the adjacent room.
Private Conversations Stay Private
Sound masking also provides privacy for conversations, because the addition of sound masking essentially blurs out the conversation so it cannot be understood by those not in the conversation.
Counterintuitively, this noise makes the room seem quieter because it reduces the intelligibility of speech. If you often speak to clients and share confidential financial or operational information, then sound masking is an audio technology that can ensure everyone’s privacy, whether you’re in the office or at home.
Now that you’re working remotely from your Katy, TX home, it’s essential to be aware of productivity pitfalls that can occur in the home. Whether it’s a delivery person ringing the doorbell or your child listening to an online lesson in the next room, sound masking can help dissipate the sounds from entering your workspace.
