BBC News - Coggeshall woman 'plagued' by How Much is that Doggie song
Heya Wolfie.I was also just thinking if any other animals can hear this hum. Say like these people's pets.
a town about forty miles from me has been experiencing this, too. i can hear things outside of the normal range, too. i hear those anti-mouse things that you plug into the wall; it's this amazingly high pitch squeal that oscillates. my grandma had one, and i was the only one who could hear it. it was definitely an annoying sound; i see why the mice run from it.
Same-same. I hear into the ultrasonic.
For a long time I could not go into a room where there was an ultrasonic motion detector (used to be common burglar alarm gear). I could hear it, and it sounded like a knife through my ears... could literally bring me to my knees.
Since I've reached 40-odd though my ability to hear ultrasonic sounds has largely gone away... and frankly I'm glad of it, it was just a pain mostly.
i figured fifteen years standing in front of a drum kit would kill it for me. little bit of ringing, but that's it; in-ear monitors slowed it down a bit. i found the electronic pest repellent pretty interesting, though. my mom could feel the pressure, but couldn't peg the note; everybody else couldn't hear anything.
A very interesting story, Jango. It's interesting to me that "it's a mystery." Either the sound is there, or it isn't. If it can't be picked up on the sophisticated equipment we have available to us to analyze and record sound, then it doesn't exist, in my opinion. IOW, it's got to be something these people are hearing 'internally' -- like the tinnitus mentioned. Since it's most often heard by people 55+, that's what I think it probably is; people suddenly attuned to their own circulatory system or some such.
