Yes. Unfortunately, bad sound masking is a thing.
Each space has its own unique acoustic characteristics that require a different masking spectrum to provide optimum privacy and productivity. If a system is limited to a single masking spectrum, it can only address one acoustic characteristic. This results in spaces with different acoustics to be covered with a spectrum that does not provide the optimum in privacy and productivity.
This would be a bad sound masking system, or at the very least, an ineffective system. That’s why Building Systems Solutions uses state-of-the-art technology that measures the acoustics of a space and configures a spectrum that matches each individual space’s acoustics to ensure optimal privacy and productivity.
