It is difficult to determine the tempo, rhythm and infrasonic content of entertainment music noise, which cause discomfort on
humans, by standard measurement methods. Especially in genres such as electro- or shuffle dance music, oyun havasi etc., mid or low
frequencies and rhythmic pulses show synchronization and continuity. This feature may cause the total sound energy to increase and
gradually increase discomfort. Although what should be done in the measurement and evaluation of noises with this character is
partially defined in the standards, its details are often overlooked in practice.When infrasonic and rhythmic frequency content are not
properly examined, it may lead to incomplete and / or questionable results and miss the facts about environmental disturbances due to
This article examines specific approaches to the measurement and evaluation techniques of environmental noise caused by
pulsed and low-frequency music that cause discomfort to humans. How sound levels that seem insignificant at first sight can play an
important role in the results will be given by the actual measurement datas.
This study is based on a research project supported by the university and is exemplified by the project's measurement data.
