Abstract: In serious disasters as earthquake and typhoon, emergency evacuation calls are important. To listen the calls clearer, it is necessary to improve salience of those calls. Since discomfort sounds seem to be salient, it is effective to increase discomfort of the sound to make the calls salient. If these characteristics of calls are clearly known, salient sound could be designed. We clarify what kind of physical quantity is related to sound discomfort. In order to clarify the physical characteristics of discomfort sound, correlations between evaluation values of discomfort obtained by listening experiment and the value of the calculated physical properties are investigated. As a result, discomfort of the sound has a positive correlation with spectral centroids. Therefore, it can be said that the higher the frequency of the spectral centroid, the more discomfort it feels. It means that it feels discomfort as sharpness sound.
