What is the difference between 响,声,and 音. When I check the English translation, it says

  • 响: echo, sound, noise, make a sound, to sound, to ring, loud, classifier for noises
  • 声: sound, voice, tone, noise, classifier for sounds
  • 音: sound, noise, musical note, tone, news, syllable, reading (phonetic value of a character)

Pls help me clarify the difference, it is quite difficult to catch.

请帮我清楚分别“响”,“声”,和“音”。多谢你们。

响 - a type of sound. It is an adjective that can mean "loud ring" like 响声音 = loud ringing noise

声 - depending on context, it can mean sound, noise, or voice. For example: 我把声音 = my voice 那是什么声音 = what is that sound/noise Colloquially, you can shorten 声音 as 声, which would mean noise. You can also use the word 音 by itself to mean sound. But this is a bit atypical. Usually you would use both words together.

音 - as mentioned, when using this word by itself, it can mean sound. But it generally means "tone." So it's not noise or a loud sound.

音 can also be used with the word 樂. 音樂 means music where 樂 is used to describe the type of sound (a happy sound)
