Sound masking happens when one sound affects another sound’s audibility, such as when the sound of a water fountain masks that of nearby road traffic noise in an urban garden. This can often be used as a positive tool when white noise (like the sound of a fan) is purposely introduced into office meeting rooms, via specific loudspeakers, to reduce the ability to hear sound that leaks from adjacent spaces therefore improving acoustic privacy.
