The influence of subjective factors on temporary threshold shifts after exposure to music and noise of equal energy
Journal/Book: Ear Hear. 1987; 8: 288-91.
Abstract: The present study examined the influence of subjective factors on temporary threshold shifts (TTS) after exposure to noise and music. Two groups of subjects, those who indicated liking and those who indicated disliking pop/rock music, were exposed to both noise and music on separate occasions. Subjects who liked the music exhibited less TTS following music than noise. They also exhibited less TTS in music than the subjects who disliked the music. Those who disliked the music evidenced greater magnitude of TTS in music than noise.
