    I think it depends on my mood. Sometimes I can completely tune out to everything but other times every little noise bothers me and I'm unable to concentrate and focus.

    I get irritated if the surround sound is on, but no 'sound' (ie movie or music) is coming out. It makes this really quiet hum or buzz noise and it drives me up the wall.

    Or a fluro light. They emit a sound that I can't stand.

    That's the type of noise I hate.

We live on a busy road, and if I have the door or window open I find myself getting agitated without being able to figure out why, until I close it again. Same deal with things like an extractor fan going. It seems to up my stress levels significantly and I feel a physical sense of relief when the noise is gone. On the other hand, places that I know will be noisy don't bother me at all, eg shopping centres.
    I feel the exact same way right down to the busy road with windows and the exhaust fan. I had my hearing tested only a couple of years ago and I have amazing hearing apparently (I only had it tested as I talk loudly myself and feel like I'm constantly asking others to talk up).

    I'm a teacher and even the noise of the air con in my classroom drives me bonkers!! As soon as I turn it off I feel instantly calm - sweaty ... But calm. I've always struggled to concentrate unless things are silent. I envy those who can keep their train of thought amongst chaos.

    Things like nightclubs, playgrounds, music festivals don't bother me in the slightest - it's just the background buzz that seems to agitate me.
