For years, there have been reported incidents around the world of people hearing a strange “humming” sound of unknown origin. At best, this sound is annoying, and at its worst, it can be downright maddening. But there is one strange thing about this horrible noise: most people can’t hear it.
“The Hum” has taken on many names according to the regions where it can be heard, including the Bristol Hum (South England) and the Taos Hum (New Mexico). But no matter where you are, if you are part of the 2% of the population who can hear it, The Hum just won’t leave you alone.
There still hasn’t been a definitive, satisfying explanation for this phenomenon, and the closest thing we have to a “cure” is drowning out the sound with music. Right now, your best bet is to just put on some headphones and drown it out… or risk going mad.
