Noise vs. Noice

By Jaxson

Main Difference

The main difference between Noise and Noice is that the Noise is a Unwanted sound and Noice is a Swedish pop- and rock band.

  • Noise

    Noise is unwanted sound judged to be unpleasant, loud or disruptive to hearing. From a physics standpoint, noise is indistinguishable from sound, as both are vibrations through a medium, such as air or water. The difference arises when the brain receives and perceives a sound.Acoustic noise is any sound in the acoustic domain, either deliberate (e.g., music or speech) or unintended. In contrast, noise in electronics may not be audible to the human ear and may require instruments for detection.In audio engineering, noise can refer to the unwanted residual electronic noise signal that gives rise to acoustic noise heard as a hiss. This signal noise is commonly measured using A-weighting or ITU-R 468 weighting.In experimental sciences, noise can refer to any random fluctuations of data that hinders perception of a signal.

    Noice is a Swedish punk rock group from Gustavsberg formed in 1977. The band scored successes at the same time as Gyllene Tider. Noice lost an Expressen vote between the two bands over which was the most popular.
