I am clairaudient. I "hear" words on the tv or radio before they come out of the speakers. Not in any particular voice or tone, they are just there, for lack of a better term. I also hear voices around me when there is no one near me. I have heard everything from growls to breathing, screams, sometimes actual words or phrases. I have heard my name spoken in my ears when there is no one around. I have been woken in the middle of the night by a disembodied voice whispering in my ear. A co-worker of mine who says she and her son physically see spirits told me that she experiences these same things quite often. My mother heard these things as well, and when I told her about it as a child she simply told me I would get used to it, as I may not be able to tune it out. When I was younger I thought I was crazy, but as I've gotten older I've realized that it's one thing to "hear voices in your head". but quite another to physically hear voices of people who are not there.
