Re: HUM_FORUM: Re: WHY
- This is interesting to me because about a week ago I took an online test from siemens to test my hearing online. I used headphones and believe I adjusted my volume on my pc properly.. well anyway.. it said that I was next to deaf! I was seriously concerned that maybe all these years not being able to sit through a movie without ear plugs and not being able to preform as a cocktail waitress at a blasting loud nightclub in hollywood those years ago, were just a figment of my imagination and that maybe I'm just deaf! Of course this HUM makes me wonder what in the world those results mean... I guess I should schedule to see a hearing specialist. The last time I had an hearing test was when I had a sinus infection as few years ago and went in because I noticed some hearing loss in my left ear. The doctor came back and told me that my hearing was better in my left (bad ear) than anyone he has seen with their good ears.. so HUM... or HUM... It's a crazy world.

I, too, have good hearing and have always been disturbed by loud noise. I could never go to rock concerts. Booming bass from cars drives me mad. I haven't been tested, but I believe my high frequency hearing is still extremely good for my age (late 50s). I hear birds on birdwalks much better than most people.
I think there's something to this, and I wonder if others can post and tell us if they are blessed/now cursed with really good hearing.
That said, I can't understand why some other folks cannot hear this. I was in a church where a low note on the organ was stuck. Ironically, it was really close to the frequency of the hum and about as loud. But when that got fixed, all seemed relieved and showed no evidence of hearing something else equally disturbing.
(I'm learning to stop asking other people if they hear it, although a young man and a youngster have heard the sound in my house.)
