Having to listen to somebody else’s conversation can be one of the most distracting things to suffer through. Humans can comprehend 1.6 conversations at a time and are naturally programmed to decode languages. “Unlike our eyes, we have no ear lids,” says Timothy Mackie, field systems engineer at Yamaha Unified Communications.
Traditional soundmasking solutions mask the conversations that you don’t want to hear (or have overheard). Those conventional soundmasking systems oftentimes only increase the background noise level with white or pink noise.
The other option is a speech-privacy system, which offers its own unique benefits. Yamaha’s VSP-2 Speech Privacy System helps prevent speech-privacy problems by effectively reducing human voice intelligibility with customizable sound options with the company’s high-performance audio technology.
The VSP-2 Speech Privacy System can be retrofitted in almost any office, unlike traditional speech-privacy systems that are built into the workspace design.
From corporate boardrooms to open offices, everyone could use some privacy and distraction-free focus time to make the most productive and confidential conferences and meetings.
