Corporate settings pose unique challenges for audio. Conference and meeting rooms demand focused, precise sound that stands out through the background noise and ensures every voice is heard. Large meeting spaces—such as auditoriums, cafeterias, even executive boardrooms—need powerful speakers and intelligent microphones that fill the space evenly and capture audio impeccably from every corner.

Professional audio solutions facilitate natural, uninterrupted conversations, minimizes distractions, and fosters a more engaged, productive, and equitable meeting experience for everyone. Let’s take a closer look at the difference between professional and consumer audio solutions.

Professional vs. Consumer: A Sound Investment

The gap between professional and consumer audio isn't just about price. Here are some key differences:

Sound Quality

  • Professional systems boast superior codecs, advanced noise reduction algorithms, and high-fidelity speakers that deliver rich, nuanced sound.
  • Consumer devices often struggle with background noise, distorted audio, and limited frequency response.


  • Built to withstand the daily grind, professional systems are engineered with premium materials and robust designs.
  • Consumer products, built for casual use, are prone to wear and tear, making them unreliable long-term investments.


  • Professional systems offer modular designs and flexible expansion options to accommodate growing teams and changing requirements.
  • Consumer products lack this adaptability, forcing businesses to replace entire systems as needs grow.


  • Professional solutions seamlessly integrate with existing video conferencing platforms, presentation tools, and recording software for a unified communication ecosystem.
  • Consumer devices often restrict connectivity options, hindering a smooth workflow.


  • Professional systems come backed by dedicated support teams with expertise in troubleshooting and maintenance, as well as warranties that cover their products an average of 3-5 years.
  • Consumer tech relies on generic online resources or limited manufacturer warranties, leaving businesses in the lurch.

To bring the multipurpose room to par, the decision was made to deploy a completely new system, the Audio-Technica ES Wireless System.

This resulted in a simplified user experience and happy users. The deployment was so successful, it resulted in an expansion into other spaces.
