How to fix bad acoustics with the help of a professional sound engineering
There are two main methods of lowering the levels of distractive sounds, and your trusted sound engineer, DIOS Audio, will provide you with a suitable plan that has been tailored to your office needs. Fixing bad acoustics usually include absorbing materials and sound masking, depending on your environment’s needs. .
- Sound absorbing materials: Sound absorbing panels and materials are used to absorb the noise instead of it being projected throughout the room when bouncing off the walls, ceilings and floors. This is especially a problem where there are big, hard surfaces, lots of talking and ringing telephones. DIOS Audio will formulate a plan to include the best acoustic panels that will fit your offices needs.
- Sound masking: Sound masking involves the creation of an ambient background sound that will help to facilitate concentration, usually by means of a white noise system that has been designed for this purpose. A white noise system will cover the noise by means of non-distracting background sound.
