This feels related to Dąbrowski's overexcitability/superstimulatability theory of giftedness. As if there are two dimensions how acutely you are experiencing stuff (how laud is the TV to use your metaphor) and how capable are you to sustain stimulation (how laud can it be for you to hear everything clearly with all the details unheard on lower volumes).

(I feel intrigued by his work on positive disintegration but haven't looked into empirical evidence yet; but my personal experience supports weaker claims about it.  Actually, I don't think that it holds as strongly as the Wikipedia article presents it. But if it is directionally true, today's narrative around trauma be fairly misleading and at least unhelpful. )
