The Annoyance of Noise of Different Bandwidth
To determine its annoyance, the noise to be tested was presented in furnished rooms in form of a permanent noise. This permanent noise was compared with inserted signals of broadband noise. The experimental results have demonstrated that the weighted sound pressure level and not the loudness level is representative of the annoyance. The discrepancy found by judging noise according to the loudness level is caused by the influence of room configuration and noise duration (short signals or permanent noise). Experimental results have shown that the judgement of noises according to the Noise Rating Curves corresponds less to the subjective impression than the judgement based on the sound pressure level.
