One is unusually sound (5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

noise

Here is my best explanation:

'sound' is the definition.

(noise is a kind of sound)

'one is unusually' is the subsidiary indication.

'unusually' indicates an anagram.

'one'+'is'='oneis'

'oneis' is an anagram of 'noise'.

This clue was last seen in The Times

(Other definitions for noise that I've seen before include "Fuss", "Din, cacophony", "Unwanted sounds", "Racket, din", "Loud or disturbing sound", "Sound, disagreeable perhaps", "Excessive sound", "Hum", "Public talk" and "explosive report, for example".)
