The reason that that's set up in this particular way is that it's really focused on the human voice because that's what we as architects care about so, it's not saying if I have a higher STC rating that's gonna be much better from a sound transmission standpoint but it's not necessarily saying that it's gonna be better at all frequencies. It's just saying at the human voice level it's gonna be better than the previous one. It's possible that I could have a higher STC rating and have more sound at some frequencies transmitting from one side to the other than another STC rating wall that has a lower STC rating.
