Abstract Bibliographic review covering gear transmissions, belts, chains, drive shafts and couplings. The study characterised the principles of operation of these devices, noted the levels of noise emitted and identified the most important noise sources. For each type of transmission, it gives the effect of various factors on noise level, the possible ways of reducing noise emission, their cost and other consequences, and the possibilities of choosing one or another system of transmission.
