Abstract Experiments conducted to study the relationship between the meaning of a sound and performance on various tasks during exposure to the sound reveal no relation between task performance and noise conditions. A study is reported of individual differences perceived annoyance of various sounds between males and females, with females showing much more variability. A third experiment is reported on effects of noise in combination with another stressor (fatigue), revealing no significant differences between conditions.
