Cambridge Sound Management acquires sound masking manufacturer, Dynasound
Cambridge Sound Management (not to be confused with Cambridge Audio) has acquired Dynasound – a commercial sound masking manufacturer.
Because most workplaces today feature more open spaces and smaller, and often shared, workstations, fewer sound absorptive materials (such as partitions) are being used. This, combined with the increased use of hard or glass surfaces and thinner walls and doors, creates acoustical challenges that negatively impact workplace satisfaction, productivity, and speech privacy.
Sound masking solutions from Cambridge Sound Management and Dynasound have emerged as effective, virtually invisible technologies to increase speech privacy and comfort, while enabling companies to maintain their open and collaborative work environments.
Sound masking is the addition of an unobtrusive background sound (similar to airflow) that reduces the intelligibility of human speech and distractions. The resulting environment leads to greater productivity and increased privacy and comfort.
To prepare for the next stage of growth, Cambridge Sound Management will integrate Dynasound’s products, partners and industry experts into Cambridge’s sound masking business model.
“Dynasound has compelling speech protection technology, a loyal customer base, and a great team with a rich history of innovation and service in our category. With global demand for sound masking on the rise, we will be well positioned to further expand customer and channel support services and launch a new generation of solutions,” says Cambridge Sound Management chief executive Christopher Calisi.
“We are excited about joining Cambridge Sound Management and being part of an organisation so closely aligned with our goals of achieving the highest level of quality, service and solutions for our partners worldwide,” says Dynasound chief executive Tom Koenig.
