Acoustic Privacy

Acoustic Privacy: The condition in which occupants of an interior space can carry on a conversation without being overhead. Architects and acousticians can achieve acoustic privacy in a number of ways, including the construction of floor-to-ceiling walls, the use of sound absorbing or baffling building materials (e.g., workspace partitions), the seclusion of workspaces, and the use of sound-masking technologies.
