#2 Interesting how we associate sounds with pleasant and unpleasant feelings, a true sense of conditioning, I can see you probably associate the Playstation sound with hours of fun with friends or siblings.I associate the Facebook Messenger notification "ding" with absolute pleasure, as it was always followed by chats from a beloved friend, in fact FB Messenger to me is that friend because of that...that's how powerful the reward response was..still is. :)

these guys sure do know their stuff. I would love to hear their opinion on other audio-logos, like for example that crap that BMW is using.
