apparent increase in loudness


during a recent transatlantic flight I observed
the phenomenon that the sound of a crying baby
appeared louder when I tried to mask it by
putting on a headphone with loud instrumental music.
It ran against my expectation that a partially
masked sound would appear less loud.
Is this a known phenomenon?
