In recent years, it became more evident that the physical environment cannot characterize the sonic built environment without considering subjects' opinions, preferences, and expectations while using the urban space. Due to these reasons, an increase of the investigations on soundscape studies related to cognitive aspects such as the emotional dimension and recognition of sound marks was observed. Few studies verified the influence of memories on soundscape perception. This work aims to characterize the effect of memories on perception responses according to different context configurations, such as functionality, seasonality and the socio-cultural dimensions of the soundscape perception data collected in Aachen – Germany and Goiânia – Brazil. The classification of memory types and their stages followed those suggested by Atkinson & Shiffrin (1968). The statistical analysis was a Two-Step Cluster Analysis that helps form the user's profile for each identified cluster. With the identifications of how memories relate to the soundscape experience, the specified preferences can indicate and enhance urban design for better living.
