Why Sound Masking?

In a recent research survey, 689 employees from 11 companies ranging from call centres to general corporate offices were surveyed regarding workplace comfort. Researchers found that 48% of participants reported speech as the most distracting source of noise. These disturbances lead to an increase in clerical mistakes, translating to possible financial or legal issues for the company.

During the same survey researchers found that workers lost an average of 21.5 minutes each day to conversational distractions making speech distractions the number 1 cause of reduced productivity. This 5% of lost time each day can equate to significant financial losses in wasted productivity for companies each year.

Sound Masking can create a quiet work environment that will reduce noise and speech distractions.

White Noise vs. Sound Masking

Cambridge is one of the product lines dEm uses for sound masking.  As they state on their website,Sound masking is precisely tuned to the frequency of human speech, so it can effectively mask human speech. Often misunderstood as white noise, sound masking is at a more comfortable frequency range.”

Sound masking is often misunderstood as white noise. White noise in office spaces is irritating when it is amplified, sounding similar to loud AM radio static. By matching the frequencies of human speech, sound masking is specifically engineered to mask conversations for greater speech privacy and productivity. While white noise includes all frequencies at equal energy and can be distracting and annoying, sound masking creates a more immersive experience that people barely notice.
