Sound masking technology creates ambient sound throughout a room that’s barely perceptible to a room’s occupants. This technology overrides the noise of people talking in other rooms to eliminate the ability to overhear conversations in quiet or noisy settings. Today’s blog from American Sound & Electronics discusses who benefits from sound masking technology the most.

Healthcare providers must follow privacy laws and strict HIPAA regulations. Personal privacy is of utmost importance to patients of hospitals, clinics, doctor’s offices, dentists, and even optometrists. Sound masking makes it nearly impossible to hear a conversation coming from another room, even if someone is talking right next door.
Financial institutions also value the privacy of their customers. No one should overhear a customer’s account number, Social Security number, account balance, or the current state of their finances. You simply don’t know who would be unscrupulous enough to misuse information from a conversation you assumed was private. Sound masking technology adds a layer of security for bankers in a lobby, offices, and executive suites.
Attorneys absolutely need client information to remain confidential, especially in an office with multiple conference rooms for client consultations, depositions, and phone calls. Installing sound masking technology ensures no one next door overhears a conversation about a highly sensitive case.
4. Everyday Office Workers
Everyday office workers need to concentrate on their tasks at hand. Multiple conversations in the background simply lead to distractions. Sound masking allows for private conversations in managers’ offices when it comes to human resources, personnel decisions, high-level discussions, and strategy sessions when concentration is a must.
Architects are the master planners for new construction and renovations. Installing sound masking technology is much easier during new construction or major renovation because we can work the devices into the ceilings before the structures are finished. We don’t have to work around existing ducts, conduits, or wires. Anyone who designs or builds a facility should consider sound masking technology if there is a concern about privacy regarding staff, clients, or customers.
