Phonophobia (also called ligyrophobia) is a fear of loud sounds. It can also mean a fear of voices, or a fear of one's own voice.[1]

It may also be related to, caused by, or confused with "hyperacusis", extreme sensitivity to loud sounds. Phonophobia also refers to an extreme form of misophonia. [2]
