The World Hum Megathread.

Have you ever heard the omnipresent humming you cannot explain? Guess what; it is a global phenomenon that is shared by hundreds of thousands of people across the globe.

It is a persistent and invasive low-frequency humming, rumbling, or droning noise not audible to all people.

Hums have been widely reported by national media in the UK and the United States and in many other countries.

Few quick facts
1) It is not tinnitus, the sound is omnipresent only in specific locations and can be shut down by using ear plugs.
2) Usually can be heard during nights, as a low-frequency humming coming outside of your home.
3) In 2017, scientists published a study in Geophysical Research Letters under the title "First Observation of the Earth’s Permanent Free Oscillations on Ocean Bottom Seismometers." The team led by Martha Deen, a geophysicist at the Paris Institute of Earth Physics, collected data in the Indian Ocean near Madagascar. The team cleaned the data of ocean currents, waves, glitches and other noise, obtaining the first-ever underwater recording of the hum. It peaked between 2.9 and 4.5 millihertz — narrowing in on results recorded in the 1990s, also similar to measurements taken from a land-based station in Algeria.

Fuck, I live near D.C. and The Hum drives me crazy. I'm considering selling my house and moving away - it's that bad.

I hiked out into various open spaces near my house and measured The Hum with a high quality audio field recorder, then came home and analyzed the audio.

A HUGE peak, +30 dB over background, sitting right at 60 Hz. Almost no harmonics (though sometimes they're present). Just an unbelievably pure, low, loud sound audible everywhere in the 20+ sq. mi. area I tested. (FFT is on another machine or I'd post it.)

I can hear it right now. Sometimes it's loud enough to vibrate the house.

Please God make it stop.

>>767754920
No I don't hear it. Unfortunately all I hear is niggerbeats outside sometimes.

I haven't traveled to enough other parts of the world since I started hearing it 7 years ago to be able to say whether The Hum near Washington is like the one near Taos, or any of the other places it's recorded.

60 Hz - with no overtones - is a low enough pitch most audio systems can't reproduce it well, or at all.

If you don't hear it, be grateful. It's like an omnipresent, unblockable (earplugs won't work, 60 Hz gets coupled into the auditory system via the mandible), low-frequency nails on a chalkboard.
>>
>>767759606
For me earplugs help a lot. It's coming outside of the windows and when I sleeps with plugs I can't hear.

No fucking kidding. As an engineer I can't even imagine what could make this sound.

Best I can come up with so far is it's the NA power grid (60 Hz) pumping the Earth in a Tesla-like fashion to the point where the whole planet starts to acoustically resonate.

(More disturbing ideas are things like a ground version of HAARP.)

While there are moments the sound gets quieter, one of the most striking things is this sound has been going on, nonstop, for at least 7 years.

Earplugs make it far worse for me, since The Hum is a sound low enough and loud enough to be felt in the walls of my house. It vibrates *everything*. So wearing earplugs just attenuates the usual noises of the day - leaving nothing to distract from The Hum.

I wasn't kidding when I said I might sell my house because of it.
>>
>>767760379
Literally explained as the first fact in the OP. Not tinnitus.
>>
>>767760425
Can you hear it only in your area? If you go to a vacation or elsewhere, everything is good?
>>
I have heard a loud humming noise only at night and it was crazy loud. Like I thought some shit was going down like I was about to be haunted or a bomb was gonna go off and it was right outside my house near my room. I've heard it about 3-6 times since I've lived here for several years. Never thought it was some like earth vibration or whatever before, but I've seen crazier shit tbh so I'm open to the idea.
>>
>>767760281
Yeah, I contributed my readings there.

Without a dedicated sampling grid it's hard to use that map - because we don't know whether The Hum is somehow associated with higher population density or industrial development, or if it's just as loud in Africa and there's simply nobody there to hear it or with computer access to report it.
>>
Could it possibly just be electricity? The sound waves made by jets hurtling through the skies? The loudness of a city? All the machinery everywhere? My best guess is that all of this just combines into a huge kind of mega noise that while not directly loud is so ever-present that it's always at the back of our minds and at the bottom of our hearing range. Just sitting in my house right now I hear the humming of the lights, the clicking of the clocks, the drone of my neighbors lawn mower, and the rumble of occasional passing traffic.
>>
I bet on overcharged power circuits, since the map shows everywhere with high electricity usage, and at night power is used far less frequent than in daytime, but the production of electricity remains about the same to keep the voltage up when someone wants to use power at night.
It is around 50-60 Hz, just like the mains power, and electricity lines are everywhere, even underwater.
>>
>>767760281
Odd that it only occurs in some of the most developed places in the world
>>
The mole people are finally about to surface
>>
>>767760845
I don't think thats the case because I've only ever heard that humming sound right outside my house near my room and only at night. Its fairly brief and VERY loud. I doubt electricity is the source of that. I've got electricity going on in my room 24/7
>>
>>767760892
I have no such thing around my house. The sound is omnipresent, does not follow any lines or directions. It's like the whole earth is humming at certain moment of time for hours.
>>
>>767760625
I just came back from a short trip to the Rockies, and while I didn't hear it there I also had a pretty serious sinus infection that was fucking my hearing pretty hard.

I didn't hear it in a circumnavigation of Lake Michigan a while back, but again since I wasn't stopping every 50 mi to test that result shouldn't be taken as definitive.

I was relieved in both places to have my initial experience be not as horrible as here near D.C. (I'm not buying a new house anywhere without making a trip to do recordings and tests, though.)
>>
I know the hum, but if we view this with a psychological perspective it would be easy to imagine this, and to be affected by other people with a sort of placebo, or it might be that we just aren't conscious of it most of the time. This dilemma goes pretty deep, and it gets hard to trust your senses and intuition. But we might very well be standing on information that will be seen as completely obvious in the future.

It's not a fantasy. I can literally hear the hum to be building up at intensity, I can pin point it is coming outside of my windows. I can hear it, be aware of it. I can hear silence when is it not there and yet thinking about the hum too. It's real.
>>
>>767760937
Careful. That's a leap.

It's *reported* more in those places. But that might be because a certain fraction of humans notice it, so more humans * that fraction = more reports.

We've had explosions in the sky and UFO's. Strange lights in the woods, and sometimes you can hear a low hum, but other times it's a ring or "halo" sound.

You can not receive internet via a generator, so there must be a amplifier station near to power the civil necessities such as internet, television and other civil needs.

That's exactly as it is near my home near D.C.

I hiked far out into fields, forests, parkland, and took multiple measurements in each one, to see if the sound had any directionality at all. The startling thing was how it did not.

At least around here, The Hum is the omnipresent, acoustically-measurable, vibrating of the Earth itself.

That would mean the digital audio files recorded by my digital stereo field recorder and analyzed with FFT are subject to placebo effect.

I'd say that's...unlikely.

I live in Seattle and hear it. Of course it's at night when the neighborhood is quiet. I've gone outside to try and hear it there. I do, but it's a lot more subtle. I get far enough away that no, it's not my house. But it seems the house itself does well at filtering the ambient noise of the city while letting this hum through the uninsulated walls. My wife can hear it sometimes. I do not hear it when we go camping.
>>
>>767762824
The locations are big. In those areas the hum is omnipresent.

In some circumstances, the human auditory system is only so-so at identifying signals in the presence of noise (perceptual audio compressors like MP3 take advantage of this).

I find the general high frequency noises of the world (wind, leaves, a car driving by) can mask the perception of lower frequency sounds. I found it much easier as I was driving hither and yon making my field recordings to listen while inside the car with the doors and windows closed. The Hum was audible in either case, but it was much more identifiable with the hf filter of being in a quiet car switched on.

(The recordings were of course made outside, and the field recorder suffered no perceptual losses moving from indoors to out.)

>>767763469
The point I was trying to make, and why I went to the expense of buying the gear to record and analyze The Hum, is that until we actually go measure things we're left unable to know whether The Hum exists in places or not.

Otherwise we're unable to correct for all the ways humans can be very fallible measuring devices.

(The Hum map is still great to have.)

Pity the poor fucker who years ago, before tinnitus was understood, had tinnitus so mind-numbingly bad that he opted to have surgery severing his auditory nerves - to intentionally go forever totally deaf - rather than have to listen to it.

That's when we discovered tinnitus isn't a sound that's heard. It's the phantasmagoria of hearing hairs that are dead.

In other words, the guy woke up from surgery to discover all he could hear was...the tinnitus.

He killed himself soon after, iirc.

That was my first guess, but power outside the US is *not* 60 Hz. And while the strikingly sharp 60 Hz peak had me wonder how it might anythielse, if we're going to be sincere about understanding this we can't assume anything.

A good strategy in science is to measure first and analyze later.

We also don't know whether what people hear as The Hum around the world is uniform. What Seattle-anon or Armadillo-anon hears might be very different.

how do we know this isnt just a bunch of unrelated shit people hear, deep humming or vibrating sound seems to me like it would be some of the most common noises in certain areas, especially because humming noises are deep sounds with lots of energy and potential to carry and bounce.

Second Hawaii fag here. This is not just 'another' eruption you fucking student. In just the last month, there were massive rains that broke world records.

That's exciting to learn.

Have any of you tried to record or analyze your local Hum?

What I first did (before buying the field audio recorder) was just run a spectrum analyzer on a computer and feed that the audio input from the computer microphone. Even with a crap-quality computer mic the huge, sharp peak and the unique audio spectrum were unmistakable.

It would be helpful to The Hum investigation if any of you could do something like that. A simple spectrum analyzer app should be free, and if you ran it on your phone you could take spectrum screenshots from wherever you hear it.

(I should probably suggest that to the guy who runs The Hum site, it would be much more useful than vague verbal characterizations of sounds.)

Going off the YouTube videos and internet stories, it does seem loudest in North America. Considering the sound seems to be coming from the sky and is consistent all over the globe, my first instinct would be the HAARP project. They focus on the ionosphere so it's not inconceivable.


Its original purpose was to analyze the ionosphere and investigate the potential for developing ionospheric enhancement technology for radio communications and surveillance.[2]As a university-owned facility HAARP is a high-power, high-frequency transmitter used for study of the ionosphere.

In my experience (D.C.) the sound is clearly *not* coming from the sky. It comes from the ground.
>>
>>767767673
I don't have any equipment to do any proper recording. It just really bothers me. When I hear it outside, I can't pinpoint the direction of it. It's like always ahead of me, no matter where I go. It never gets louder or quieter. Then it just stops. At night it's much more clear to hear it. It's like humming of a specific base speakers, only there's no sound. Like someone forgot to turn it off. Then it goes off and it's quiet. It goes down slow-ish. Not suddenly. You can hear it's getting louder when it starts, too. Insanity. You can clearly hear the difference between city sounds and the humming. After doing some research on it few times, it's concerning to me. It's not anything coming from my head. I triple checked exactly for that many nights. I'm aware when I'm aware of it and when not. It's super weird.

Thanks for that description, that's much like my personal experience of it (though here in D.C. it never, ever stops).

As long as you have a computer with even the crappiest microphone, or you have a cellphone, you could at least run a spectrum analyzer and see what it shows. That was my first step when I wanted to verify the noise wasn't some error, or magnetic manipulation, or whatever, of my auditory system.

Once I saw that the computer could recognize it too, that's when I set off to buy better gear and do field recordings.

But those original realtime FFT's from the built-in mic on an old iMac were surprisingly close to the much better stereo field mic. It's definitely worth a try and should be pretty close to free, if you're willing to spend an hour or so.
>>
>>767768967
It's worth of try. I just wish I would do know what tf it is. It's driving me insane.
>>
>>767768211
As as I said in some earlier posts I feel it in my feet on the ground and in the foundation and walls of my house.

Your useful questions do bring up that we don't know even what it means when a person says a sound comes from "the sky." That it comes "from" anywhere already suggests a degree of directionality that I don't experience. For me one of the most unusual things is how the sound is *everywhere*. It's like being *inside* a constant sound field.

That means people saying it comes from "the sky" might simply mean they can't localize the sound (already an unusual experience for most humans), and so standing in a constant sound layer extending 100 feet (e.g.) from the ground they default to describing the source as the biggest, least-localized thing in their understanding: the sky.
>>

That my local Hum never varies, never stops, and can't be blocked out or escaped was one of the reasons I first wondered whether what happens here was a large-scale audio weapon - like city- or nation-scale versions of crowd control noise on military vehicles.

You don't "hear" The Hum as such, which is why it is so difficult to pin down. It's more like it's a feeling that grates right through you.

If you suffer from this, try going outside and lying on the ground. Also try a full range of movement of your neck and you'll notice that you'll get some relief.

Powerful description.

Okay, say you are hearing it, and someone unfamiliar with the phenomenon is with you. If you ask them to listen, what are the odds they'll be able to hear it? Wondering if a person has to have exceptional bass range on their hearing in order to hear it...
>>
>>767772007
The spooky thing about this D.C.-area hum is how invariate the sound field is. There's no detectable gradient at all.

Maybe a way to describe that is replace the idea of hearing The Hum with breathing air. The oxygen doesn't seem to come from anywhere - it's everywhere. Moving upstairs or down or any other direction changes nothing. It's a surrounding field.

That this is the nature over a many square mile sampling area, covering hundreds of feet of elevation change, is why I feel like we need a larger, more intentional sampling effort.

I keep hearing a continuous 11–12Hz tone. What could it be?
>>
>>767773464
I meant 11–12kHz
>>
>>767772509
I don't know that I would be so cruel as to point out to someone something they could then never ignore. (I've wrestled with the moral question of whether to show others how to hear it).

60 Hz (the tonic here in D.C.) is well within almost everyone's hearing, so super ears (which I do happen to have) aren't necessary at all.

What I believe happens, as I said earlier in my post about perceptual masking, is the normal sounds of the day (wind, speech, all of that) perceptually mask The Hum so people who aren't looking for it overlook (if that can apply to sounds) that it's there. I know when I go places and listen for it, even knowing what I'm looking for it can take a moment to pick up. (Microphones of course have no such problem.)

So people who have lives filled with distracting sounds of other kinds - and even slight wind noise against the ears is enough to distract the brain - just never realize The Hum is always there.

Maybe another analogy is hearing one's heartbeat. Walking about or working at a desk it's less noticeable, but enter a very quiet room and it's very obvious.

And like I said, like learning to read, learn to hear this and there's no escape.

So far I've been unwilling to teach anyone to hear it. The spectrum analyses show it's there. So if when I casually ask someone if they hear a hum and they say "no"...I envy their bliss and leave them alone.

>>
>>767775876
Given your attentiveness, which is obvious from your writing, I'd say it should be very easy for you to hear The Hum - if it's actually present in your location.

I'd suggest going into a quiet place (a room in your home, a closed car at night) and simply getting still. Wait a minute or two or five, and if you suddenly notice a low pitch (not impossibly low, just low bass range) that doesn't vary and doesn't seem to come from any particular direction...that might be The Hum.

But you maybe be fortunate enough to live somewhere it's not (since we don't know its distribution).

I'd say pass on earplugs at first, since they may make your own breathing and heartbeat so noticeable they might distract you from recognizing The Hum.

For me it all started while I was sitting in my dining room one evening, and I suddenly realized what I'd been sensing and perceiving was a *sound* - one so unusual my only response was to say "what the fuck is that?"

Since your condition started when you were young, I'd recommend finding a doctor who knows about pediatric tinnitus.

Tinnitus is actually very common in children, but the causes are varied enough it would be poor form for me to suggest any. But because some of the causes are very treatable (e.g. joint alignment, now we're sincerely into chiropractor-anon territory), don't simply resign yourself to a life without hope for better hearing.

It may take some hunting to find a good doctor (remember one of the leading causes of death in the US is doctors being stupid), but I'll cross my stapes and hope you can someday soon find some real improvement.

Here you go, this explains what you're hearing

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schumann_resonances

>>767778805
But Schumann resonances are electromagnetic, atmospheric effects. The Hum is often an ground-based, acoustic phenomenon.

Not to say that atmospheric electro-resonances might not be able to generate sound, but there's no immediate explanation of how that would happen, or if the sounds thus created were at all like The Hum.

I find it fascinating how so many people's response to the unknown is to try to kill it (by immediately explaining it away).

All to no avail. Most people live practically on the level of a robot. Clueless about anything they haven't been programmed to care about.

My point in telling you this? I don't know. Noise shattered my nerves, and ruined my life. My wife left me because I was unbearable to live with. I hate everything. Don't wind up like me, I suppose...

You deserve your own globally-recognized annoying sound.

"The Whine."

Any kind of noise in particular?

Car mega-bass, motorcycles, diesel pickups, aircraft, barking dogs, loud talkers, loud laughers, assholes who chew with their mouth open, lawnmowers, leafblowers, power tools (chainsaws are the worst), people who assume it's okay to make noise if the sun is up, bars with music so loud no one could possible have a conversation, people talking in movie theaters. I guess those would be the starters off the top of my head. Dozens of other human noises have tortured me...

Even though this is sort of a detour from The Hum (which is relatively low level, and irritates by being omnipresent and constant), yours seems a sensitivity to loud sounds that could be intermittent.

How old were you when you started developing your sensitivity to noise?

I remember being annoyed by the noises of people eating when I was like 5 or 6. Everything else started approximately at 13 or 14, but only got really bad after college.

I first noticed tinnitus around 11 or 12. Yes, my annoyance level depends on where I am. I definitely avoid certain places and activities.

After 30+ years of coming to terms with noise, I just always feel on edge. The slightest unwanted sound sets me off.

So, I can very well imagine how awful hearing The Hum is...

around 2009 people were talking about it alot, but it was the first time i ever heard about it, then i was walking the us open on tv and i heard the hum/low sound noise (sort of like an airy version of the "bwahh" sound effect used in movie trailors)

I was hoping you could rule it out. I know someone who has it. It's horrible for them.

It's like being allergic to sounds.
