Out of everyone in the world, two percent of people suffer from hearing an unbearable, strange noise. Do you hear it?
For years, people have reported hearing a strange “humming” noise coming from various locations. But to this day, no one, scientists included, have been able to identify what is generating it.
Perhaps the strangest thing about the noise is that not everyone can hear. Only about two percent of people claim to hear the noise.
So if you’re with a group of people and you hear it, they’re probably going to tell you that you’re wrong. But rest assured, you’re not going crazy. That noise really does exist.
Surprisingly most of the two percent of people who can hear the noise are between 55 and 70, a 2003 study conducted by Geoff Leventhall, an acoustical consultant.
A few locations are notorious for having the sound. In southern England it’s called the “Bristol Hum” while in New Mexico residents hear the “Taos Hum.”
“It’s kind of torture; sometimes, you just want to scream,” Katie Jacques, who lives in England, told BBC in an interview about her experience with the low-frequency sound. “It’s worse at night. It’s hard to get off to sleep because I hear this throbbing sound in the background … You’re tossing and turning, and you get more and more agitated about it.
A map has been created the tracks the hum around the world.
While some blame, tinnitus, others say it’s high pressure gas lines, electrical power lines, wireless communication and even electromagnetic radiation.
Do you hear the hum and what do you think it is?
