Sound implementation: The right sound at the right moment.

It can drastically enhance the user experience.

Sounds specifically designed to enhance the user experience should be intuitive, functional, and easy to understand. They shouldn’t be obtrusive, distracting, and you most certainly don’t want your UX/UI sound design to be perceived as annoying.

Sounds easy right? But most of the time it’s not as simple as it seems because it is rare that the actual sounds irritate us, it’s the implementation of the sounds which causes problems.

Here are three tips to get better at sound implementation right away:

  1. Never accept the feeling that your sound design is significantly slowing down your experience.
  2. Make sure that the sounds are not too frequent: Sound should create a sense of comfort and security – only calling for action when needed.
  3. Test extensively, but focus on a specific target audience. Use a lot of different sounds that authentically represent your Brand’s identity.
