Cambridge Sound Management (CSM) History
Cambridge Sound Management was founded in 1999 in Cambridge, Massachusetts by an MIT PhD in the field of acoustic, and is a descendant company of the Bolt, Beranek and Newman’s a highly regarded acoustics consulting group that was founded in 1948. This received the American Institute of Architects Honor Award as recognition for having “…created an awareness of acoustical considerations in building design… and integrating solutions based on scientific principles with architectural and artistic concepts.” Cambridge Sound Management launched its first commercial sound masking solution in 2001.
Cambridge Sound Management, Inc. manufactures QtPro and DynasoundPro sound masking systems to help organizations protect speech privacy, reduce noise distractions, and fuel workplace productivity. Its next-generation sound masking systems emit a uniform, barely perceptible background sound at the frequencies of human speech. The systems also include office paging and background music capabilities to help facilities meet all of their sound masking and audio needs. Cambridge Sound Management’s systems are deployed in over 20,000 organizations’ spaces throughout the world.
Recently, the Cambridge Sound Management team had the opportunity to spend an afternoon participating at the Everyday Essentials program at the organization Cradles to Crayons. At the factory, CSM supported thousands of children in need by sorting, matching, and/or packing “KidPacks” of clothing for the back-to-school time. Above is the CSM team at the factory after our rewarding afternoon was complete.
