Small sample survey on the physiological effects of fabric sounds (rustling etc.). Loudness and LPT (level pressure of total sound) decrease slow alpha waves and pulse volume (PPG) while sharpness (presumably bright timbre) increased heart-rate variability (LF/HF). An increase in all three factors, therefore, is associated with negative physiological indicators.

In other words, loud, sharp sounds are not very pleasant. cf Moro Reflex.
