We are surrounded by sounds in our daily life. We listen daily to clocks ticking, horns blaring, coffee machines buzzing, alarm clocks ringing, tires squealing, dogs barking, flies buzzing, sirens screaming and babies crying, just to name a few.

Now, there are some sounds that are down right irritating and then there are other sounds which are soothing, relaxing and comforting.

Some people say they can’t stand the sound of fingernails screeching over a blackboard. Some ladies (and men) find their spouse’s snoring unbearable to listen to.
