How Effective Is It?
The Sonet acoustic privacy system is a highly effective individual masking solution. The use of Multi-Channel Technology along with a broader range of volume control increases its ability to cover over unwanted voices and other noises.
It is recommended that you initially set the volume at a comfortable level, even if it doesn’t provide the desired level of privacy. The ear 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.
The Sonet System base configuration includes:
- 1 – Controller with volume dial
- 2 – Speakers
- 2 – 8′ cables to connect the emitters to the controller
- 1 – Transformer that plugs into a standard AC wall outlet
- 1 – Set of mounting hardware, including mounting plates with push pins for mounting on fabric-covered walls, wiring lips, and spare Velcro pairs
The Sonet System uses New-Patented Digital “Qt Quiet” Technology™, featuring Dual-Channel (stereo) masking. The result is the masking sound fills the room evenly, providing superior coverage. It is effective in helping to cover hundreds of miscellaneous noises that might otherwise disturb your sleep.
What Does It Sound Like?
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?
It is effective against…
- Barking dogs
- Traffic noise
- Bass from neighbor’s stereo
- Slamming doors
The Sonet System will help with these and many other 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.
Installs in Minutes
The Sonet System was designed and engineered so that anyone could quickly unpack and setup 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 the night stands by the bed. Each volume control unit can support up to six emitters. A base-configuration Sonet System can treat a room of up to 150 sq. ft. For rooms larger than 150 sq. ft., add at least one speaker for each additional 75 sq. ft.
