Well, the brain still has to extract enough info from them to have a 
general idea of what kind of noise it is (a rough shape of spectrum), and 
ESPECIALLY extract the non-noise portions of the spectrum.

Well, there are perceptual models that try to separate «noise» from 
«non-noise» for easier encoding and stuff...
