is anybody aware of hearing experiments conducted with a (very) large number of participants?

This paper used a novel online experimental paradigm and got 162 subjects for their first experiment. (

"The effect of visual stimuli on the horribleness of awful sounds," in Applied Acoustics, Trevor J. Cox, Acoustics Research Centre, University of Salford.

This paper reports on the online paradigm used to collect information on horribleness of sounds, and how the perception of auditory horribleness is altered by visual stimuli (see also the sound101.org website). And it's the only paper I know of that uses the word "horribleness" in the title.
