The study showed that exposure to steady-state broad-band, high-intensity noise ranging from 70 dBA to 115 dBA for time periods of several minutes did not produce significant changes in visual depth perception errors. Any error in stereoscopic depth perception produced by exposure of humans to broad-band white noise between 70 and 115 dBA is so small that such a perturbation is inadequate for establishing community or occupational noise standards. Other criteria are more important.
