    Ran into this situation:

    after hitting the shuttle, opponent "might" think the shuttle was going out and then made a loud sound, like "sxxx" or "fxxx" or "gee" or "yak" or whatever sound that you may make when you did something wrong. the sound is definitely loud enough and distracting. However, quite some time, SURPRISE, the shuttle landed inside even though you were there.

    now the question: is this considered as a fault by the opponent, or it is acceptable behaviour unless it's done way too many times in one game?

    Making sounds that distract your opponent is rude in social play but rarely will you be able to call a fault on it. In a tournament, the umpire/judge would have to give a couple of warnings before a fault is called and a point lost.

    I usually just ignore them as best I can.

    As far as I understand it, the noise made by your opponent has to be deliberate with the intention of deceiving you into making an incorrect decision.

    If they just make a noise to themselves, the umpire won't call it. However, if it's bothering you, you can point it out to the umpire, and they'll let the other player know.

    in recreational setting, not much u can do to, it's a form of cheating IMO.

    in real tournament with umpire and line/service judges, if the noise made is intentional to distract (when the shuttle is on the receiving court area), a warning or a fault can be called to the violator.

    guess may have to provide some kind of warning, or ask for a "let" play.

    lol just deal with it, i mean are you going to whine about every little thing that can happen in a game? it's part of the game (the irony of me saying this is that i am an umpire for softball and this is not allowed at all lol)

    Next time what you can do, is if they say something like that, take the shuttle before it lands, signal to them that its out as they have suggested with their 'loud exclamation' and assume its a point for yourself. Then if they argue that the shuttle hasn't landed, well then you can argue back and tell em to shut up until the shuttle lands if they want to make such 'distracting noises'. All is fair if they wanna play dirty :D

    Approach the umpire or whoever is scoring about the issue, and if necessary, even try and talk to the opponent about it, as he or she may not be doing it to distract you at all.

    You were probably joking about doing that, but you would lose that argument and ultimately the point.

    You shouldn't let your opponent's reaction in this case influence your judgment (that is strangely the correct spelling).
    It's your (generally speaking, not specifically at YOU) fault for depending on what your opponent thinks rather than what you think.
    Well that's the way I see this situation.
    I'm pretty sure the opponent didn't mean to distract you on purpose.
