This field has developed a series of mathematical tools of great practical utility. We adapted these methodologies to detect if the auditory perception in general obeys to sonometric parameters. To do this, we carried out a series of sensorial evaluation surveys to 16 students on 135 students, teachers and members of administration and services of the University of Extremadura. The comfort scale is defined by 5 values ​​ranging from -2 (very unpleasant) to +2 (very pleasant), being 0 indifferent. The 16 sounds have similar tones as they are sounds of water. However, their sonometric characteristics are completely different. The parameters in which they differ are related to the presence of harmonics, fundamental frequencies, spectral information and fractal dimension. We explore the relationship between these parameters and the degree of comfort. We defined some useful recommendations to use this test as a measure not only of the degree of perception to the sound, but also to determine possible states of altered emotionality. Finally, we explore the application of the results to the best design of parks and gardens in the urban environment.
