[quote:Gannon:MV81Nzk0MDFfMzA5Mzc0OTNfQzVGMEQwRg==] [quote:lucidink 11709942:MV81Nzk0MDFfMzA4MTg1ODZfOEQxMzMyNjU=] I've discovered that I can hear it REALLY loudly with my right ear (with a finger jammed in my left ear), and hardly at all with my left ear (w/ my right ear plugged)- clearly due to a difference in my hearing abilities and would explain the wavering 'off' stereoscopic image. Most interesting: if I hum the note, the HUM seems to stop for a moment or two, then immediately fills in the auditory vacuum. It's almost like my humming creates a temporary baffle that mutes or 'defeats' the waves- like noise cancelling headphones. Last night was quiet enough outside that I could hear it outdoors... I also now remember how loud it was last summer. I'd like to go to other people's homes in the area and see if it can be heard. I'm also considering a late night source search when it gets really bad--- does anyone have any suggestion as to what type of device I might need to detect or measure this sound. If I can get at least 3 accurate measurements I can begin to triangulate the source direction and track it down (this assuming there's a primary direction). I"m under the impression this is an overlapping phenomenon, so I'm sure there are multiple sources--- whether low frequency towers, ELFS or whatever other networking might be causing this. And I can hear it right now, at 10:00 am, in my otherwise silent home. [/quote] You merely describe the well-known and researched 'masking' ability of the human ear/brain mechanism...when louder or more nearby sounds are present, the whole focus is shifted and the new, loud, nearby sound and ALL other sounds seem to fall away. You can increase this by focussing your eyes upon a thing, too...which is why you can 'hear' someone talking at a very loud concert in a crowd. Some well-practised in meditation can focus SO strongly upon a point or object, they can turn off their ears! I'm not yet to that level... So far, I've confirmed the hum in locations well over 200 miles apart...how far do you want to go in your triangulation calculations?! Cheers, John Detroit [/quote]
For the past month or so I have been hearing a very low level humming sound. No one else hears it and I'm starting to wonder WTF is going on. I hear it mostly at night and early morning, because I'm guessing it's the quiet time of the day (night).
This humming is not constant, it sounds like an electric motor trying to cycle. I've turned off all the curcuits in the house so I know it's not from within the house. I can even hear it when I'm out in the woods or at the neighbors house.
It's really starting to bug me out!
And no it's not tinnitus.
