Noise  can  be  defined  as  sound  that  we  do  not want.  This  definition  is  a  subjective  one,  however,
because what is unwanted sound to some people may be desirable sound to other. Noise is subjective.
That  noise  is  subjective  may  mean  that  people
receive it at different levels. This two people will not agree that the loud music from a neighbor's house, for example,  is  noise!  To  one  of  them,  however,  it  is tolerable, noise while to the others it is annoying noise. This difference in the levels of reception between two people may be due to the fact the former is a patience person, while the letter is not. It my also be due to the fact that the former is used to having loud music, while the letter is not.
To  borrow  a  term  from  psychology,  the  person who  can  tolerate  the  loud  music  is  said  to  have  been conditioned, while the person who is annoyed by it is said not to have been conditioned by the noise.
In addition to the tolerance and annoyance levels, there  is  yet  another  level  of  noise  reception.  This  is what might be called the damage level, where the noise
is such that it damage the eardrum. The damage may be
temporary, and in this case the person concerned may be only temporarily deafened. It may be also be that the damage  is  permanent.  When  this  occurs  the  person become permanently deaf.
Very often however, deafness does not occur right way but comes gradually as result of a long period of exposure to the same source of loud noise. The person concerned may tolerate that noise because he was been conditioned by  it,  but  damage  is  done.  The damaging noise will accelerate his gradual loss of hearing due to growing age.
