Has anyone heard of the Hum?
Has anyone heard the Hum?
I think I may be starting to.
The Hum is a very low frequency, continuous noise that appears to be coming from nowhere in particular. It seems to be just above the lower hearing threshold, and some have described it as a continual diesel engine rumbling away.
Only my noise isn’t a diesel engine sound. It’s more like a telephone dialling tone; a constant purring. If it was a dialling tone, it would stop and then be replaced by the high-pitched screeching howler noise, so I know it isn’t a telephone.
The odd thing is, I can only hear this noise in the Living Room, where there are no telephones, just to clarify.
I was in the Computer Room the other day, and thought I could hear the diesel engine sound. It was constant, and gave me a headache, which made me feel a little queasy. But when I moved in this room, the noise moved. After further investigation, I found that the computer base had moved slightly and was touching a wooden cabinet, causing this slight rumbling hum. I moved the computer, and voila! the noise vanished.
Back in the Living Room, however, the dialling tone persists.
I did an internet search for any low level noises and was introduced to the Hum.
My Living Room noise is definitely outside of me, and in the room, it sounds like it’s also outside of the room… but further investigations are needed. It’s most odd.
At least one mystery was solved though… now onto another!
