Central vs periphera: You may have a problem with your hearing.I would reccomend a visit to an ENT physician.Either its a problem with ears recieving the data or your brain processing it. A full hystory and physical along with hearing test may be needed. A cat scan or MRI of brain may also needed.

Loud noises?: What kind of loud noises do you mean? Someone yelling? People arguing? Loud noises outside your house? Trains? Automobile traffic? Construction? In some cases you might be able to go into a different room and use headphones. If people are fighting in your house, decide whether or not you can intervene safely. If not, perhaps the police can be of help. Your doctor would want to know too.

This is common: Many people with headache disorders are sensitive to loud noise. Loud noise can intensify existing headaches or cause new ones. The physiologic mechanisms are not fully understood. Changes in air pressure from sound waves is part of the cause but probably not the whole answer.
