“Sounds of chewing, breathing, keyboard typing are considered by most people as ‘normal’ sounds and are ignored as background sounds in everyday listening.

However, for a group of people these sounds are not only distracting but also evoke a strong feeling of anger accompanied by an urge to escape from the situation producing these sounds.

This condition, marked by sensitivity to a selective group of sounds, was given the name “misophonia” (hatred of sounds) almost a decade ago…

The objective of the current work was to check the consistency of profile of symptoms and trigger sounds in a population of subjects with misophonia.”
