Frequently Asked Questions
What exactly is Sound Masking?
Sound Masking is an important element of any building's acoustic design. It's specifically made to emit a sound at the same frequency as human speech. This means it produces a sound already familiar to the human ear, but at a higher level to reduce the sound of distracting speech.
Is Sound Masking the same as White Noise or Pink Noise?
White Noise (and its many variants) are basic versions of sound masking in that it has the ability to cover certain sounds, but at higher levels, it can be just as distracting. The QT Pro® Sound Masking utilizes a frequency in the same spectrum of human speech, a frequency the human mind is already very accustomed to. However, there are times when "too quiet" becomes "too loud," and Sound Masking is the right solution for those cases as well.
