Whether it’s your cell phone ringing, your computer humming, a text buzzing, a coworker gossiping, or a sales guy closing the deal, your office is a symphony of sound that boasts of a mutually exclusive relationship with focused concentration and productivity. It’s no wonder the average worker finds himself distracted more than 2 hours every day!
If you’d like to reclaim those lost hours of productivity, the Sonet Acoustic Privacy System offers the same, high quality digital sound masking technology large corporations employ, but packaged for easy installation for individual offices or cubicles, from spaces as small as 50 sq feet up to 500 sq. ft. The Sonet was specifically designed to address individual needs for speech privacy and to reduce noise intrusion and distractions. Bottom line- the Sonet is a low-cost, off-the-shelf solution that yields results.
The Sonet System is a highly effective individual masking solution due to the fact that it incorporates Multi-Channel Technology along with a broader range of volume control to cover unwanted voices and other noises common to your work space.
The Sonet System will help with almost any problem noises. It will reduce the degree to which you hear these noises anywhere from 15-100 percent, depending on considerations such as the volume and frequency of the intruding noise, as well as the volume level at which you can comfortably use the Sonet System.
More Comfortable Sound
The Sonet System produces a sound like the gentle whoosh of a high-quality HVAC system. Since the sound is absolutely constant but has no structure, the brain simply tunes it out – just like you have tuned out the noise from the fans in your computer. You hear the fans, but how often do you actually notice them?
The Sonet System uses Patented Digital “Qt Quiet” Technology™,” featuring Dual-Channel (stereo) masking so that the masking sound fills the room evenly, thus providing superior coverage. It is effective in helping to cover hundreds of miscellaneous office noises that might otherwise disturb your focus without adding a counter-productive annoyance. The result is more comfortable sound, and therefore better focus and more productivity.
Tip: It is recommended that you initially set the volume at a comfortable level, even if it doesn’t provide the desired level of privacy. Your ears will quickly become accustomed to the new sound, and you can gradually increase the volume (over about a week to 10 days) as needed to increase your privacy level.
Installs in Minutes
The Sonet System was designed and engineered so that anyone could quickly unpack and set up the system. It comes with a Volume Control Unit that plugs into any standard wall outlet. Wiring is as simple as connecting modular telephone cords between the Volume Control Unit and Emitters. Thin plastic plates can be attached to the wall using a small screw, and Velcro is used to hold the Emitters to the plastic plates. The Sonet System speakers can also be placed on your desk.
