People generally perceive sound differently, but gender might well as be a factor given biological differences. You can see how this variation manifests in music preferences and music production. It can also explain why an individual would get stressed more easily by certain sounds, while the opposite sex can shrug it off. Are there sounds that irritated you yet were taken lightly by others?

If it exists, then I'd say it's due to societal expectations more than anything else. The only example I can think of is how men and women react when they hear a baby cry. Some men can even sleep right through it.

Hi, There may be some differences, but not huge ones. I am inclined to agree with Madison that is cultural / social factors that are responsible for most of it.

Good Listening

Yes, gender can be a factor, but experience has more impact on our auditory senses. I noticed that I became more tolerant of honking cars after spending more time on the street.

I recalled being more affected when our parents would shout while my siblings were so chill about it! It brings me to the thought that attention may be the better factor influencing sound perception regardless of gender.
