White Noise

i think it's music i hear. i'm always hearing something. i don't notice it until it stops, then i'm looking around to see who turned off the radio. i have actually went searching for the noise thinking i left a tv or radio on, and found nothing. i think it's weird. i don't mind it, since i don't really notice it until it stops. it's good to hear others hear stuff too, i thought i was just certifiably insane.

WHEN MY BLOOD PRESSURE IS HIGH I HEAR THE RADIO STATIONS. Sometimes a different station in each ear. It is physical and not psychological. The stations become more defined with white or pink noise.The first time it happened I thought I was going crazy....what the hell? I searched the entire house for a radio playing but there was none. I could hear it clearly in the heating vents when they were running so I thoroughly checked the furnace and the basement. I asked my children if they could hear it and they said no. I have exhaustively linked the occurances to one thing.......my blood pressure. I could hear them day and night with high blood pressure.With normal BP there are no radio stations in my hearing. I have had completely normal pressure for three years now. It is absolutely not a psychological event to hear radio playing unless you hear the same thing over and over....that is something different. Good luck all....check your BP.

Has anyone figured anything out about this? I have had this as long as I can remember. I'm 31 now. The music is almost always old big band era music, 40s I believe. Stuff my grandfather listens to (he is 93). I occasionally hear talk as well. Normally this happens late at night, always the same music. I can't explain it much myself as trying to identify a local radio station would be pointless. I've lived all over the east coast, from Florida to new Jersey and currently in Ohio and it is still the same tunes. This has been happening since before the internet made things like nationwide radio possible as well. I've never discussed this with anyone fearing I would get looked at as if I was crazy. If anyone has found any leads as to what causes this phenomena please let me know.

Classic rock? I think I hear bad to the bone right now, clear as day. My radio has Ben off all day, nd the station is always 106.5 when it's on, and off sometimes.

I'm pleased to have found this message board. This makes me very interested/confused about my experience. I find it incredible how so many people have experienced the same thing I have. I mean, many peoples experiences seem to be exactly what I've encountered. It only lasted about a week. I was up at the cottage (cabin) alone and had a fan running above my bed. I could hear music. I did not pay any attention to it, as I assumed it was coming from a neighbouring cottage. It wasn't until the next day when I was in total silence except for a ceiling fan. I could hear what sounded like the radio. The radio up there has almost hit the dust and I thought somehow there was some kind of a short and sound was still coming from the speakers. I unplugged it and could still hear music, it was very difficult to make out, it wasn't very loud. It seemed to be coming from a part of the wall. The walls are thin to the outside, so I went outside and could not hear anything. I left for the city later that day. Two nights went by and I was in bed with my partner. I live in a condo on the top floor and rarely hear anything from neighbours, most walls are to the exterior. I could hear music, and assumed that it was a neighbour and have never had a problem with noise before so I let it be; until about 3am and I just could not get to sleep. It was clearly a radio station because I could hear music and a male voice (a radio announcer) between songs. I got up and found that it focused close to where there is a duct. I could not sleep so I put cloths on and when into the hall putting my ear close to peoples doors to see where this was coming from. I went into the emergency stairwell and could hear it in there as well but focused more towards the wall that has our place on the other side. I even went down a level to see if it was coming from the lower floor. My husband could not hear anything and I though he just wanted me to get to bed so he could sleep. It turns out he really couldn't hear anything. The music I could hear was sometimes rock, gospel (which I never listen to), jazz/big band, pop, sometimes songs I knew, others I did not. I could almost make out the radio station numbers being advertised... for example 99.5 type thing so I would try and punch in those numbers on the internet to see if I could find a live feed for a radio station that matched the music I could hear (I had no luck). I think the radio stations could have been coming from other cities. My husband doesn't want to talk with me about this. He gets really upset thinking there is something wrong with me. All of this happened in September for about a week and I have not heard it since. The duct I mentioned had a fan running inside (forced air) when I turned the fan off the music was not as easy to hear but it was still there. This all sounds crazy but when I found this message board, it makes me believe there's got to be more to this than I know. I understand that if you listen to loud music for a long period of time your brain will trick you into hearing music afterwards. I was not listening to loud music, nor was I on drugs.


The first time I heard the radio playing in my head was 6 or so years ago. I was at a hotel and convinced that I was hearing the radio from the next room -- indistinct, but complete with DJ banter, music and maybe even commercials. I was traveling and overtired. Since that time, I've experienced this same phenomenon when it's quiet and I'm over-tired. I notice here a lot of folks mention being tired during their experience. Again, although the voices and music are indistinct, the sound is as if my mind has tuned into a real radio station, with one exception: the DJ banter sounds like "morning show banter," and it's the middle of the night.

Wow I don't know for sure how long ago it started, but I hear music from radio station even the disc jockeys who are put the music on, but usually only when I'm driving and in parts of town I also tested it if I focus on it I can make it come in clearer

I am so glad I found this.. I hear music all the time, and like others, I can hear the music down to what type is being played but its muffed as if it were in the next room.. The range of music has been anything from hard rock to classical, and even a church choir one day. I tend to keep my Pandora playing to try and drown it out most days but when I wake up at 3am it is there instantly .. I have had this for over 2 years now and counting...

This just started happening to me 2 nights ago and it's completely freaking me out. I can even hear the DJ and commercials! I just got done searching the house to see if something was left on but of course.....nothing was. What the hell am I supposed to do? Good lord I have enough crap wrong without something else to add to the list😕

Join the club I am just glad it comes and goes sometimes I hear someone calling my name and I think it was my deceased brother walk. By what does that mean

Me too. It's so clear I can tell when the song changes, though it's more of a crossfade than an abrupt switch. I can't make out the lyrics or identify the songs, but sometimes I hear a song and I think "that's so-and-so." It's like my brain is replaying music I've heard before, and it's clear enough to be recognizable by fuzzy enough that I can't identify it. My music is mostly on the rock spectrum, anything from heartland to metal and punk.

It started during my misspent youth when I was coming down from ecstasy. Back then it was techno, trance, etc. I was also a meth addict at one point, so it's interesting that other former meth addicts experience this. For me though it stopped after I got clean, until this year. I have some mental health problems but no psychosis that I'm aware of. I suspect it's my medication, since it acts on the same neurotransmitters that ecstasy and meth do (not nearly as enjoyably though).

It doesn't bother me at this point, but I was pretty sick when it first started and it freaked me out for a while because I thought it meant things were getting worse. I've improved somewhat but it hasn't gone away, so I still wonder if it's part of the illness. Time will tell I suppose.

The first time this ever happened to me, I was a teenager, high on meth (I think I'd been up for around 6 days...) and I heard, clear as day, but far away sounding, the local Mexican radio station coming through the toilet. It was even all bubbly sounding, as if you were listening to the radio in the pool with your ears just under the water. It continued happening, long after I quit the drugs, in all sorts of situations, although it did take a short break immediately following my quitting.

I've noticed it is normally a local AM station, as far as I can make out. More oft than not, it's the most powerfully Talk Radio station. It also tends to happen at night moreso than during the day, but maybe that's just because it's much easier to hear little things in the silence of the night.

it's so weird how this is a prevalent thing with former/current meth users, I'm wondering if the meth deposits some type of conductive matter into our bodies, that would possibly explain the correlation.

May I ask what medication you are on? I have psoriatic arthritis and Sjogren's Syndrome and my doctor has given me methotrexate and methadone for inflammation. I too was wondering about medications.

I am a former meth addict clean 9 years now, but the hallucinations seem to be getting stronger, usually when i'm deep in thought. It gets so loud I can't hear anything else at all. Usually it's a hymn, or great piece of classical, but sometimes it's some kind of original symphony going on, and it's the most beautiful thing I have ever heard. As soon as I notice it, I'll try and pay attention to it. It's gone and I've snapped out of my trance.

I used to listen to heavy metal as a teen and listened to it way too loud, i've had tinnitus off and on.

My wife is genuinely jealous, and I really like it, just wish I could control it better.

I do the same thing. It started when I was strung out on meth which I was on for a short period of 6 months. I'm clean now but I hear it more. But I can understand what there saying its like they mumble. I hear it all the time not just when I'm tired. I'm a man of science and no one around me hears it. So I can't explain it. It doesn't scare me at all just drives me crazy thinking about how it works and how I'm the only one who can hear it.

Yep, it's as if there was a channel on the radio or Pandora in the background maybe upstairs in the spare room that I can hear but the words aren't clear.
I also went and looked just thinking that the clock radio in the spare room had gone off with the music on the alarm. I don't really notice that it stops or when is just that occasionally I realize that I'm hearing something that sounds like a familiar tune and it usually goes with my mood. I wonder if people of different ages hear music from different eras? Anyway, I am not crazy so probably you aren't either.

I almost burst into tears seeing other people's experiences. I am assaulted, right now, with jazz/big band music. Sometimes I can hear either a man or woman sing. My wife thinks I am nuts. No lie... it seems to be coming from electric stuff: my stereo speakers, clock radio, and worst of all... I put headphones on to drown it out, AND I COULD HEAR IT THERE, TOO!!! It got worse later at night; I didn't really notice it before, could be a radio station that cranks of their wattage at night? Is it coming through my fillings. I am afraid I am cracking up. My wife doesn't hear it, she thinks it's psychological. Any one that can let me know something... via this site PLEASE DO!

I can hear it to....Glad some others hear music to..feels that we are not alone. I test it sometimes by shutting off my fan and then its off...but the moment I turn it on..there music again.....you are not cracking up for sure...hang in there..its ok

Oh gosh! We use 2 fans at night because my husband has a constant ringing in his ears and the white noise helps to drown it out. I only hear it when the fans are on as well. In fact I can hear it coming from the bedroom where the fans are right now. It's really freaking me out.

Somehow I get comfort from reading your post. I wanted to talk to my doctor about this but realize that it would be looked at quite differently and didn't want something like that on my medical file. What you have described is exactly the same as I have experienced. I don't think it's psychological at all, it was too real. For me it only lasted for about a week and I don't hear anything anymore.

Over the past couple weeks I started hearing music in our office and I was convinced my co worker had hidden a bluetooth speaker in the hvac system to mess with me. I recorded it and could distinctly hear the music, I even identified a couple songs I never heard before. Then I started hearing the music at home coming from outside my window, this progressively got worse and worse, I now thought this person was stalking me as I started hearing lyrics in the music saying my name and they love me as in I love ... I love ... There is a lot more to the story and I'm working on writing a blog as this has all just started but I realized I had some demon tormentors as I got them on recording in different voices plotting out the things they were planning to do. I found a way to combat them, it's not full proof as I've only been using it two days and tonight I increased my response and they have been cursing at me through my window as they get further and further away. I will let everyone know if they are gone for good and I will explain how I did it.

I hear it to........specially if I focus on it...Good that I am not alone and good to hear others to with it....I hear it directly with a fan.....and living in a place that goes back to 1800's..was a bar at one time....So that is possible also..anyways we are not all nuts take my word....best

I have the same issue although it can happen during daytime too. It's beautiful music. Idk if I want it gone but I don't want to fear I'm loosing it. Lol! My sister has the same thing. Right now I hear talking or music (after what sounded like talking) it's eeird. Just hope it's not serious!!

I hear piano music coming from the dishwasher, hymn/chanting in the shower and when I am really exhausted it sounds like I am in a room filled with countless people and they all are having conversations at the same time...

Her is a quick crash corse, every living thing, or electrical device gives off some sort of frequency. radio stations, cellphones,TV stations, musical instruments, and even human speech. in short it is also known as a sound wave, which is still nothing more than a frequency.it is possible to have your stereo speakers off and still here random radio stations. remember your AM crystal radio experiment. you can do this without having to use any type of power source, its broadcast through the air. we also know about people who have braces. I hear random radio stations and talk shows through my fan somtims. a motor is actually running With a frequency. it's not the white noise you're hearing it through it is whatever electrical devices creating that white noise with an electrical frequency. Your ear drum and components Are nothing more then a simple speaker /recever, with a biological power source and magnetic field designed to pick up sound waves which again are nothing more than a frequency designed to picking up frequency/ soundwavs. people who hear these are generally a little bit hard of hearing and or are also very musically inclined, and some people who may have some certain emotional and mental disabilities. I know this is a short answer and I probably left a lot out but this will be enough for you guys to speculate on. hope this helps everybody you're not crazy or maybe you are I don't know Lol.

I have always suspected that it's my brain's way of integrating sounds that my ears no longer here clearly into meaningful patterns. I'm glad it sounds like the kind of music I like rather than heavy metal or talk radio. Pure Grace I assume.

Thank you.... I have PTSD from combat but I'm very musically inclined. And well kinda def. U save me thank you so much

Thats what i thought too, Your not alone.Im so glad i found this site and all of you.

Glad I looked this up. Thought I was possibly crazy. The 1st time it happened was very upsetting to me. It was late, I was tired & it sounded like one of my neighbors had some pretty loud music playing. (We live in a small town house) I actually sat up in bed, looked at my soundly sleeping boyfriend and then proceeded to try to see out of my bedroom window, which is near my head. I was angry. The music seemed like rock/medal, which isn't my preferred genre. But, it had stopped once I got fed up & sat up. It has happened countless times since the 1st episode & does change in genre & volume. I think I've narrowed it down to my fan, which I use 365 days a year. When I'm lying down, with one ear on my pillow, the air from the fan seems to roll past my ear creating this noise that I turn into music w/my imagination. I'm 41 and have played flute since the age of 10, so I read music and seem to be able to conjure up some great beats, tunes, melodies, etc. I've learned to embrace and enjoy it.

I hear a harmonica it started 3 months ago the pitch go's up and down always staying in the same key. Recording music and producing my whole life has made me pinpoint that it's not in my head but it's in my ears. When I hear it I have found I hear it better on top of hills but only in certain area's as if something in the ground has to do with it. It doesn't really bother me just annoyed I can't finger out were it's coming from. I'm doing experiments and will post when I figure it out.

I hear folk music when the dishwasher runs. I thought it was just me but I'm glad im not the only one!

No you are not truly the only one...I hear it when the fan is on...pretty fast sounding but I think its from also the place I live in...goes back to 1800's and was a bar plus an Inn at one time..so it could be from that also...

I have tinnitus but lately I've been hearing a low muffled bass type musical sound that is far worse than the ringing. I was trying to go to sleep one night when I started hearing the music. I thought it was young kids in the neighborhood playing loud music. I had my husband try to help me find the source but he couldn't hear anything so I take it is in my head. I just hope I don't I don't end up with a full symphony orchestra!

I thought I was going crazy. I have been hearing beach boys music every time it is quiet for about a month.

I can agree with many of the posts on here and like those people I am relieved that others experience the same phenomena. About half of the post seem to miss and are talking about something else entirely. The commonalities that I've seen and largely mesh with my experience are:
A faintness that usually renders the tune, show, etc. unIdentifiable. Like others I can usually tell the "style" such as swing, metal, talk show, game, whatever but can never make out a full melody or word.
Being alone, usually late at night, and usually when it is quiet. I have only experienced it when I am alone after putting the kids to sleep. I've never heard it when someone was around so I could ask if they heard it too. I have had the T.V. on and still heard faint music but usually it's just quiet. I'm intrigued about fans and or HVAC being linked. I often run a fan to keep air circulating and do so year round.
One final note and this is just about white noise. If you have a white noise generator and or sleep machine they can pick up and play errant transmissions. I used one for years until I moved to my present house. My neighbor is a HAM radio hobbyist and has a giant antenna in his backyard. My wife back then freaked out the second day in the house when she heard voices. I followed them back to the noise machine and after a min or two of listening I identified one voice as the neighbor.

Two other commonalities to my experience I forgot: One, that I don't notice it at first. When I do actually notice hearing it, it seems like it has been playing a long time unnoticed. Two, that it comes and goes in spurts. I may hear it several nights in a row and then not again for weeks.

One day while driving I turned the radio off and realized I still could hear the song. After that I noticed I heard things in my head and there was no reason why. I heard a band playing. I thought it was the school band but no that wasn't it. Then I would see things like a man who was not there. At bed at night I would see pictures like cars driving up, or to a party at my house set in the 1930's.
Then we moved and I thought that would be the last of that. But no it got worse. I would see people at my windows, some would be nice others not so nice. They would wake me by walking on the porch. That has gotten better but the music is still with me. All I hear is gospel music, the older songs of the 40's and 50's. Those I hear at all hours but mostly when I go to bed. Also when I go to bed there is a mist above me and once I recognize it, it will sit on my chest. I tell it to kiss my face and it does. It seems scared of anything that moves in the bed. At that point it will rise upward. If I think the words it will do what I ask. If I put my hands up it will catch my fingers and it feels like a suction lightly on my fingers. I don't know why and my husband and daughter says not to tell anyone or they will think I'm crazy. So I don't tell anyone. I lost my last sibling in Feb and I believe he has visited me. I believe also my mother has visited me. One night I woke up and this face was above me just an inch or so. When I woke up it went away. Another time I got out of bed and stopped real short. I saw a lady standing in front of me but she went away after I got up I saw her and was so surprised I said "oh" and she was gone. There is a bit more but I think I better stop for now.

Mostly, like in my case, I think it may be the dental work we have done. Like the fillings in our teeth. But I think that you may actually be clairvoyant or a bit of a medium.

I to have been hearing radio music when I lay down to sleep at night . I have accused everyone in the house of playing music at night I've searched everywhere . I thought it was in my head. I finally found the culprit it was my portable AC unit.

I hear that too. The last three nights have been torture. I hear baseball games, people talking, water running, music. Last night was Mexican music....I don't even know Spanish. ...lol. I go through spurts. I'm glad I found this site. I feel better knowing there are so many other people hearing the same thing.

I also got this weird experience of hearing music through the noises. At least that was the way it began. After I started to hear voices and I thought people was teasing me, I searched for the device that let me hear the voices. Then I realize it was just in my head and thank God, I was cured of that sense of paranoia and started to trust the people that surrounds me again. I started to go more frequently to the church and I understood then it was a spiritual problem. Not only I hear music, hear voices but also has begun to speak in Tongues. Is funny experience since I know what I'm saying but, when It comes out of my mouth I pronounce it in another language. I never understood those people that speak in tongues. I was skeptical about it. But not any more. Now I buy books regarding the Holy Spirit in order to understand better this weird experience. Also I try to compare my situation with Noah, Moses and the other prophets that appear in the Holy Bible, that seems to have this ability and by that time it was normal... not an schizophrenia symptom! Something I can recommend is that I notice that by taking the supplement for mood enhancer it help me to feel relaxed. It is sell in Costco and is called 5 HTP Tryptophan. But any way I still got the ability of hear weird thing and speak in tongues even right after I take that supplement.
God Bless You, I hope you all can find a way to manage your live with this new way of being.

Yep, get it all the time, it stops when someone else is there. Mostly it's the heater, and stops when I turn it off. My aunt had the same thing. Sometimes the music's awful, other times quite wonderful. All different genres. Rain on our roof sounded like guitars. 40s music seems to have been popular recently. I've heard dirt track racing, football matches, all sorts. One time I had a bad flu, and found I could change the sound (to something else) by turning my head. Most of it's music unheard before. I just wish I could write it down, or record it. I got harmonica music earlier this evening, also got some pop, and lately, I try to change the way the tune goes and I can. Some people who get this maybe picking up radio waves, but for my part, I'm fairly sure that I'm mildly bonkers. I had the 'in head' conversations too. I can only roughly read music, but I'd really like to know more. so I can transcribe it and play it again. Some of it's glorious, there was one classic type piece, that reminded me of layer upon of swan feathers. I was amazed that I must be responsible for it!

I hear music like a tape playing the same song over and over. It will start suddenly and stop suddenly. I have been awakened at night with loud music like someone just put on a tape to play. I sometimes hear people talking not to me they are just having a conversation between them. Do I have some kind of brain disorder?

I've been getting the same thing for the last couple months. I hear it when I'm laying down to go to sleep, and then all of a sudden it feels like the radio is on somewhere. Its like muffled noise of People talking then some music exactly like switching through radio stations. I have no idea what it is. I've ruled out an outside noise or neighbor. I've also noticed that over the past Year quiet noises would bother my more, and I could hear things outside that nobody else seems to be able to hear.

i think I messed up w/ trying to post...Anyway,I am so glad I am not ALONE!I hear radio stations,they are always mellow,and no bass.But really nice music.Also;I hear complete conversations in my head when Im very relaxed,people talking about every day things!a man and woman,or a group of people out to dinner,I even get names once in awhile.It made me think I was crazy,but they are not "telling'me what to do,they are not even talking to ME!!Sometimes it sounds like Im in a room full of people,or at an office,or even a grocery store,and I can hear their separate and distinct answers.I wa stold by a psychic that I was a death"" walker""20 yrs ago.but this all just started about 6 months ago,and no one is dead!LOL Thank God(that is a whole other story!good to know I am not crazy,I also have many spirits here so maybe they are just having casual conversation.And like I said,only when In very relaxed,right before sleep,when I am meditating,and now it seems to disrupt that,...so I just listen?....GOOD NIGHT ALL,IM SO GLAD I FOUND THIS SITE! :)

When the hvac is running or any small heater/fan is running I too hear either radio stations or tv programs... Mostly songs I can rarely discern except genre. Glad I googled this!

Hello All<br />
For the past two or three years I have on occasion been woken up in the middle of the night by what I thought was my radio alarm. However, I found the alarm was off and I too use a white noise machine to sleep at night. At first I thought it was metal coils in the bed picking up radio signals, however ever time I heard the radio there was no music that I recognized (it had a DJ and everything saying you are listening to JPOA...) When I turn off the white noise machine the radio turns off. Just read an article about how the brain takes random firing of the mind and puts in into higher thinking such as music. So what I got from the article is that the white noise is being translated by the higher thinking of our brain into something discernable. Just like you all, thought I was loosing it. Have a good night :)

Add a response...I hear a man singing song it's a sad song even when I am out what those this mean.

You have tuned into a radio wave frequency. It is happening more because of all the towers around us and WiFi.

I have read these post of tuning into radio frequency or wifi however. In our old house as I was trying to go to sleep I could hear music and talking like and old Victorian type grand ball with waltz like music. It bothered me for awhile then I just listened to it til i fell asleep. At this time
there was no wifi invented.

I thought I was the only one. I hear music in running water. Sometimes it's like that spa music and sometimes it's classical. Only instrumental songs. I very glad to know this happens to others and I'm not crazy. Thanks everyone for posting your experiences.

This just happened to me today that is why I have googled it. My husband had left for work and I was having a lie in bed. I fell asleep then I woke up to the sound of very quiet singing and music. It was a man singing and I sounded like a very old romantic slow song a little like the 30s or 40s. I checked the radio in the room to see if hubby had set an alarm to wake me however it wasn't on. Laying just resting I then heard a violin play which freaked me out a bit. After that I heard very clearly in my head a young boy singing to music 'where is love' from Oliver.
Obviously started googling as its worried me.

I have heard ballroom music, country music, and just today I am hearing a almost like elevator music. I started researching it and found it is coming from the WIFI frequency waves. What you hear depends on what wave you are attune to.

I have a Homedics sound spa and when I play the waterfall effect which essentially sounds like white noise I sometimes hear short repeating melodies. At first I thought that the music was built into the recording but after several months of never hearing the same melody twice I decided it was something else. Strange

is there anyone from london in this thread who has had this experience and would like to give an interview? I am hoping to make a short podcast discussing the Radio Frequency Effect and would like to hear about people's experiences

I am in the U.S. but I think it is great to get this out there and heard. With so many cell towers and WiFi all around us these days, it is becoming very common but people are afraid to talk about it because they think everyone will think they are crazy. I started picking up on frequencies back in 1999.

i often hear like a weird buzzing but its as if there are multiple buzz sounds going on at the same time I occasionally do hear music though but I have learned to dismiss it as a song stuck in my head. Im pretty unsure what to classify it as. could someone please explain the diffrence

The buzzing is called Tinnitus, you can do a quick Google search to find out more about it. But the music is radio frequencies that you are picking up on.

When I was a young child I would hear a radio in the distance. My mother heard the same thing. I would ask her what this was and she would say 'maybe it's the powerlines buzzing'. I spent hours under those powerlines trying to figure out why they sounded like people talking. We would also hear a phone ringing. When I was in 4th grade my parents built the house that they are living in now and we moved just down the road from that place. We never heard it again and never talked about it...until....my uncle retired and moved back to our home state. He built a house on that site. Just before construction was completed and they were ready to move into the house my aunt came down to mom's and was telling her about this strange radio playing off in a distance when they were inside this new house. My mother mother never said a word, just listened. My aunt then said, 'and there is something else that is very puzzling........At this point my very quiet and unpretentious mother said, "You hear a phone ringing when there is no phone". My aunt was shocked. She asked my mother how she knew. My mother then told her that she had heard these sounds the whole time that she had lived in that house..........This is the same mother that tried to dismiss these sounds when I would question her as a child. As an adult I now see that she had no explanation to give a 9 year old child. Now, this was back in the 60's. Not a lot of high frequency stuff like today. We never knew what those sounds were.

Like around 1990 I was sitting in my parents living room no tv or radio was on and the speakers they had in the room like jvc 12" went real loud like a truck driver talking or something and all the levels lit up on the stereo system. I couldnt understand what was said and it was like 4 or 5 seconds long real quick but weird before most people had cell phones but the stereo was off . Anyway the same thing just happened in my head not as loud but real weird.

About a week before Christmas my HK AVR home theater was plainly playing Christmas music. The HK was off, rather in sleep mode, Frosty the Snowman and others plainly recognizable. Not loud.

Later, when the furnace started it was louder and what started was unrecognizable. Just tubas and horns that just cycled.

The HK sits 20 feet from the furnace. My other Mac sits 40 feet aways. The new thing is that when the furnace is off music is play and it is 'Walking in a Winter Wonderland'.

The final bit of weirdness is at home and at work I can hear Sinatra and Perry Como. No HK AVR at work and my headset was turned off.

In all cases I could not pinpoint the source.

What now happening is I hear what sounds like a banjo and guys talking real fast the an older guy starts what appears to be a sermon.

This started all a week before Xmas and I suspect my dog is experiencing the music in the head. She wimpers and gets as close as possible to me.
I did find 6 shots of vodka help.

sometimes when i lay in bed at night and nothing at all is on i hear things and i always say to my wife do you hear that? and she always says hear what?.. the best way for me to explain it is like the faint sound of a radio but not music more like am talk radio or a sports game but i can never make out what they are saying.. iv started to call this the weather/radio man.. but one time i was focusing on it real hard cuz i wanted to hear as best as i could and it started small and turned into a large loud ohm sound like a million monks were in my room

My kids are in school and my 2 yr old is asleep in his crib. As i walked into my kitchen i heared Classical music coming from my boys room where the baby sleeps. As i got closer, it was coming from inside the room. It was not faint enough to be coming from outside but loud enough to be inside the room. As i walked into the room and stand in front of the t.v wondering if its the t.v, the music stopped. I picked up the ipod it was off, the t.v was off, no other music toys in the room that would possibly be on. I've experienced other things throughout the years, like seeing Father-in-law standing in the hospital hallway while his dead body was in the hospital room, i heard voices in my head telling and guiding me through my life decisions. Starting to wonder, if i'am a sensitive? To many psychic like encounters, it started by me years ago reaching deep into my subconscious and mastering how to reach and clarify my soul, crazy huh? you should hear the things i've experienced after that....

Oh my gosh! I am so glad I found this! This has happened all my life and I used to look for the source of noise (usually music). I eventually just dealt with it. Wow. I am glad I am not the only one. It seems if I have had several drinks it gets mors intense.

I have had this happen for about 20 years...I thought too I was going nuts.. I too have Mercury Fillings as well as a fan in my room. I only hear this when I am laying down in bed. I just hear radio stations nothing else

I'm so glad to have come across this! I truly thought I was going crazy! I hear music or conversations while my bathroom fan or AC is on. Not to long ago my daughter asked me if I heard music, we were hearing the same song describing the tune to one another. Truly thought somebody must have a radio on outside. When the fan was turned off, the music went away. I had no idea humans could pick up low frequency radio waves. Makes sense as the genre of the music we hear seems to alternate between rock & country. When we hear people talking it is very difficult to make out the actual words. I don't think I will be sharing our "gift" outside of here, I don't want to be labeled a lunatic but I was questioning my sanity for awhile!

I am profound and hear the orchestra upbeat music...and it wont stop!...and about a year ago I heard like a radio broad caster but it was like foreign language.....I cant understand any of it.....and I also thought it was from me going deaf.....at nite when im tryin to sleep thats when it bothers me....nobody has mention a cure ...if there is one please me know..thanks.

oh thank GOD!!!...i was raised in a heavily religious family, so naturally im like "oh crap, voices...DEMONS BEGONE!!!"....lol...but after narrowing it down to my ac i knew it had to be some type of signal...so my question is...what percentage of people does this affect, what are the requirements ?..and does this mean we have a one up on those who cant ..can we advance this "gift"?

People have known for years the government is aware that people can hear Low Frequency Radio signals and some could hear GWEN which was a nuclear war warning system. People have worried that governments would use it for mind control and brainwashing. Not everyone in the world has the genetic ability to pick up the radio signals. They have known since the Navy Project SEAFARER that used low frequency waves to communicate with submarines that people can pick up the sounds in their sub conscious and for some humans and animals it caused their head to explode.

The only way to stop getting radio waves is to destroy the nerves in the inner ear and cause deafness. I know this because I had the problem with radio signals and took a medication for water retention called Furosemide (generic for Lasix) and it had the side effect of hearing loss. I lost 50% of my hearing but it almost cured the ability for the radio signals to reach my brain. I can hear it out there but I can’t make out what they are saying. They can’t get to me anymore.

There was a big problem between 2001 and 2006 when both military and terrorist were accessing systems sending out radio signals that were damaging people. It was like torture. They combined a GPS tracking device with their communication system and when I was tracked it caused severe pain in my upper thighs on my lap while driving. When I laid in bed sometimes I would get severe pain in my legs for no reason. It helped to move around a lot because if you just sat there the signal became stronger and caused more pressure in the brain.

No government will acknowledge they have such top secret projects so there is no point in talking about it because they will just call it a conspiracy theory. People laugh at those who tried tin foil hats but at least they tried something to protect themselves. It’s like any pollution that can be harmful to one in some way. It can damage the brain, cause pain and even death that they would consider natural causes.

At first you will hear songs that are familiar to you and then if your lucky enough to get picked you will start hearing songs you have never heard before, foreign music and bazaar sounds and voices. There are a lot of people out there that have been diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia that also know the problem is coming from radio signals and/or satellite. The military don’t fool anyone but people have not found a way to make them stop. People have to live with being stereotyped as crazy and dangerous because the government wishes to play games with people’s lives. And who is to say that it’s not the military that screws with people’s heads and causes them to become domestic terrorist like Sandy Hill and Aurora Movie Theater.

@ amylea72 the same thing happens to me but once it stops my body jerks up and my sleep is gone. It is really hard to fall asleep without any sort of medication or tea. Ifanyone knows how to make it stop I'd be glad to listen to any suggestions.

What happens to me is, it sounds like a room full of people, different conversations all at once. With music playing in the background... they keep talking and the music keeps playing, the only thing is, when its doing this, its totally quiet in my room. Nothing is on. It freaks me out sometimes, and other times i can be driving and I hear someone close to my head whispering. The only person that knows this is my husband.

I am so glad I found your post I haven't told anyone and the same exact thing happens to I me like when I'm driving and the whispers and the radio won't even be on or the sound of music or a group of people talking but I can't understand what they are saying and ill be all alone when it happen and it will be quite it freaks me out

Im so glad that I found this topic, I totally thought I was losing it, lol. Lately though, my mother and sister have been experiencing similiar phenomena. Personally, I use a CPAP machine for Sleep Apnea, a condition in which one stops breathing, usually during rest or sleep. C.P.A.P. stands for Continuous Positive Airway Pressure, and its a device that works similar to a vacuum cleaner, so it promotes a steady but mild Air sound. When this device is on I hear all types of Music, choir, rock, chimes, your name it. I rather enjoy it so I am not concerned about it too much. I also hear sounds such as cicadas, a crackling sound that sounds like a computer accessing its drives and various other sounds. My wife has admitted that she also hears music sometimes. When I turn off the CPAP machine, the sounds go away, go figure! It's worth mentioning though, that I also have heard music around the house when the CPAP is off and when trying to find it's source, none can be found. I suppose we All should just Relax and Enjoy this phenomenon comforting ourselves in that we have company and are NOT losing our Minds. My mother and sister will be very glad for me to share this mutual finding with them. Thank You!

I'm glad I found this thread! It's nice to know there are other people experiencing this too. I hear music in static and in running water. It's mostly 1950's music, but sometimes other music and sounds come through. It's weird, but I like it.

Soooo how do you fix iit if noting is new or different... and one day you just hear a radio station?

anyone else get other phenomenon? i do. most people i know either dont at all or also have a bunch of weird happening

It's 5am and I've been sitting by the fish tank for an hour trying to work out where the rock music is coming from, is it really the fish tank?? Yep, just turned the filter off and it's stopped, back on and it's back. I've always been sensitive to noise from electrical equipment so maybe it's linked.

Im glad im not the only one, i really thought im going crazy.

Thanks for the topic...phew

I had this ten year ago... It left me after having a large back tooth extracted??? I think I heard real radio stations & my filling was acting as an antenie????

wow I am so pleased to have stumbled across this site and learn others expierance all this as well. For me it started about 4 or 5 years ago when I purchased a bedroom fan and I can hear many genres of music including gospel,hymns country opera and Christmas carols just to name a few. I can also hear preachers preaching politicians arguing,adverts,news readers and the worst one is the horse racing. so pleased not to be alone in this. I actually had the courage to tell my doctor the othe week and she assured me that others had similar expierances. So here I am in the south island of Nz and any fan from a $2 garage sale to a $70 stainless steele fan all do the same thing. Please reply if you can enlighten me at all. Sound waves in the air seen to be the most probable to me.

I also have this occurance on a regular basis espescially if there is a fan or air conditoning,whit noise in the background.

I also hear what sounds like a talk show/sporting event/radio through the fan when I'm tired. It only happens when I'm awake 24+ hours. At first I thought I was crazy, then I thought it was from sleep deprivation, but now it seems like people with normal sleeping habits also hear it.

In fact right now I'm sleep deprived with the fan on and keep hearing a male game show announcer saying "10,000 dollars!" over and over and over... I feel like I'm going crazy!! I don't do drugs and only drink occasionally, and I find this humorous more than anything. Hopefully I don't have a mental disorder!

I have not had he games show yet but definately the others. The one I hate is the horse racing.This started about three years ago. I bought a new fan last week but it still happns. Why is his?

I started hearing what I thought was music around 7 years ago when my husband started turning on an ocillating fan for sleep. Now, I can also hear it though our sound machine, air conditioning and through the bathroom fan, any white noise. We have moved several times and I hear it in every home that we are in. I am now (sometimes) able to hear complete songs, and sometimes I hear game shows....The Price is Right..... how weird is that. I am so glad I found this thread, I sometimes have a hard time sleeping because of it (hence the reason I am up so late).

I have heard music thru my air conditioner for years. I thought my house was haunted. Some friends told me that it is some sound phenonemon from the lake I live next to. I took that as a reason, although no one else ever heard it. I recently went to visit my sister, who lives no where near any water, and could hear the music thru her air conditioners. I decided to risk being committed and asked her if she ever heard the music. She said YES! None of her family hears it. I dont know if it is hereditary, but at least I know I am not alone!

I thought I might be going a bit loony and taking my son with me. I hear music through most any type of fan, but air conditioners are the loudest for me. I hear all types of music and djs. Most of the time, I can name the band and song, but not always. I find myself listening and singing along - and then realize it's my window a.c. Sometimes, I hear a type of music that I've never heard before, the only way I can describe it is chime rock. It's beautiful. I am happy and relieved that I'm not alone. I'd never mentioned it to anyone before, but it seems to be getting louder lately. I told my husband first, but he doesn't hear anything and neither does my daughter but my son hears it, but not as loud as I do. He can't identify songs. I've been wondering if anyone on here thinks it might be possible for sound waves, both very old ones and new ones to get trapped in the atmosphere and just rotate around the earth with us? I first realized that I could hear it when I was a young and at the dentist. All I could hear being played over and over through his drill was the theme to the scooby doo cartoon. On another visit it played smoke on the water - which would have been on the radio back then, but scooby doo was definitely t.v.- thank you, scooper.

My daughter heard music through her braces and my father through his hearing aide but recently we had a water leak under the driveway and when the plumber tried to pin point the leak all he could hear was classical music playing through the cement and water, we all listened to it. There is a radio boosting station about 1 mile away I think radio waves are all around us, my concern is will/does it cause medical problems.

I know where you are coming from. I just bought an old house, I would goto bed at night after cleaning and evrything would be shut off. When I layed my head down I would hear a radio of some sort.... I could nt figure it out. Its freaky. After I totally finished doing the house over It went away.

This has been happening to me for a year and a half. I read if you consume a lot of Aspertame this can happen. I quit drinking ANYTHING with Aspertame & it seemed to stop; for a while. Now it's back in full force, and I didn't start consuming anything with artificial sweeteners.

When I wake up in the morning and my through the window air conditioner is on low, I hear the sound of numerous, overlapping radio announcers. It's like there are a bunch of radios on in another part of the house, all turned down low, and all tuned to a different station. I don't hear complete sentences, and never any music. I live at the ba<x>se of a mountain that has 11 commercial radio transmitters. My wife hears it sometimes too.<br />
<br />
When my tinitus acts up, I hear metallic crickets chirping rapidly where ever I am. The radio announcer sound is much different.

I guess I can say, me to. When the house is very quite, location or time of day dont seem to make a difference, I hear a radio station playing either classical music, or big band era music. Sometimes there is singing, sounds like a quintet or small group but I cant make out the words or recognize the song. There is also the DJ, and sometimes what I call 'the guest' as the two seem to having an on-the-air interview.<br />
<br />
Then, like others have said, I can hear music in the sounds of a fan, dishwasher, the cpap machine I use, all kinds of repetitive, steady sounds. This is different than the radio station. Its always classical music or a large choir and I can control the speed or the octave or change the tune some. But its random sounds making music. Strange.<br />
<br />
I suffered a traumatic head injury while serving in the military. The head injury damaged a small part of my brain which eventually died. Over the last 30 years the dead spot continues to grow causing various aspects of my physiological system to malfunction. But the most annoying think is when I'm tired or angry I here "clicking" in my head every time I refocus my eyes. Its sounds like tin foil being crumbled or old electric switches firing. Drives me nuts and its getting worse. Also, everyone thinks I'm making it up. Only one Doc in 30 years took me seriously. Depression medicine used to help but that no longer work and I am at my wits end. Anybody else hear clicking? Sigh.. Well, that my story.

been experiencing this a lot recently and whats weirder is now I can "change" the channel, i found out by accident as i was making up music in my head to go along with it, if i think of a musical tone, bass frequencies seem to work best the radio seems to "follow" the sound and tune just like an actual radio. <br />
<br />
Its really weird if i think of higher or lower tones the "channels" tune in and out with white noise and static between the channels, sometimes its songs i know other times its songs ive never heard before sometimes even people talking in a foreign language, french i think? maybe im going crazy but if i am my subconscious mind has some serious musical talent, i could never think up that stuff while I'm normally awake. lol

ive also been able to change the music. sometimes i can even change to a chosen song. other times its random. i also get the talk radio/sports/gameshow thing. never noticed if i had a fan or any other electrics going but gonna test out since it seems common. i personly think we are capable of much more than we know and some of us more advanced ones are starting to evolve.

I also experience faded and jumbled up music within white noise. I hadn't noticed it until I was put on lithium and I wonder if there is some sort of cross-synapse thing going on. Wires are def being crossed here! Lol

Interesting. I have experienced this also. It usually happens when I'm alone in my house and the dishwasher or fan or washer and dryer are on. I seem to be able to hear it in certain areas of the house better than others. In each case I hear rock music that I have never heard before. I can hear the symbols the clearest, sometimes even the words faintly so I strain to hear them, I write them down sometimes. Every time I hear it I still assume it's coming from the neighbors houses, so I go outside and minute I step outside It stops. Or if I move from where I was standing it stops. When I go back to the same spot, it starts playing again. I find it very intriguing.<br />
<br />
My theory is that we are picking up actual radio waves that are everywhere around us. I'm never alarmed by it, to me it represents the facinating human mind. As we as humans evolve more and more of the capabilities of our mind will come to light. We are only on the cusp.

Another interesting facet is I have heard what sounds like people in a restaurant. I can here muddled conversations, glasses and silverware clinking, music playing in the backgroud. all the
sounds you might hear when eating at a restaurant. I think I've only heard it when in my garage.

I heard a radio station when I had a fish tank. I always have my radio on when I sleep but I could barely make out the sound of the fish tank too. I would be tapping my toes and bobbin my head but then realize that what was in my head wasn't what was on the radio. It would be a completely different genre of music, but it stopped when I took down the fish tank. I had other things going on as well though.

Woohoo I'm not crazy!! Or at least not the only one. It use to drive me nuts trying to find it. Now honestly I actually look forward to it and feel out of place if i don't hear it. Very strange indeed.

Me too! It suddenly got a lot warmer in my house, and we've had all the fans on, and the vent from the swamp cooler. And I was trying to go to sleep, and there it was. Like others have mentioned, I've learned there is no radio on, no tv, and I couldn't ignore it, so I got nervous, and came downstairs. I'm so glad I'm not the only one! And I have to say, it's got to be something besides fillings, because I've been having this happen to me for as long as I can remember, and I only had my first filling a few weeks ago, and they're not metal. There is no metal in my mouth whatsoever.

Oh, and when I mentioned it to my husband, he said he gets that sometimes too. And so did the guy he was talking to on the phone. It has to be more common than people think, but the moment anyone says anything about 'voices' it's like you have the plague.

Huh, my husband can't hear it but too afraid to ask any of my friends. And if it isn't from dental work, then I've just got to say it's cool to be "special". If I knew how to jot down musical notes, I'd be wealthy from some of the music I've heard. And it's weird but I can distinguish it down to Christian music, classical, country, rock, hard rock and DJ talk (but words can't be made out). But at this very moment surrounded by three fans, nothing is happening, which makes our condition much more baffling &amp; exciting!

I always hear what sound like the radio some times it classical, some time country (and I don't even like country) it's not perfectly clear but I can only hear it any of the fans are on high. The bathroom fan, air purifier, ceiling fan. was just standing next to it and my I maneuvered my self were I could hear it the loudest and it as clear as day, a song. I though I was crazy! I rushed over to my PC did my research and I am so glad I am not the only one! Has any one found out if this is a condition? It doesn't bother me now knowing other hear music too. I could live me hole life with it.

Finally, someone who hears what I hear; even the sound as if someone keeps turning the tuner knob hunting for a station. But the music never sounds like a song I know. Could it be from dental fillings or metal partials in our mouth? That is the only logical thing that makes since. Have you noticed one ear, not both, ever experience an immediate loud hum and slowly goes silent as if a satellite has just passed over? And it's usually when ur horizontal? I'm curious if anyone else experiences that too? It's not every day but a couple of times a month.

my wife says to spank me also! omg! She is so amazing! And I love her so much.

Please contact me on this issue! twosilvertrumpets at yeeeha dot mom. I have the same but want to understand what is happening. It is physical only. This is not a mental condition. None of us are crazy! omg! We are hearing these things in our ears. Talk with me please. 281-384-1622. twosilvertrumpets at ye ha dot mom. best, Ron

These are not in your head. You are hearing the radio. I don't know how but want to figure this out for myself. I hear the radio also. With pink noise through my air con, or when I am driving my car.<br />
Different stations, new songs, and stuff i have never heard as well as songs I do know.

Well, what is it? I have had it for years, and my mom had it too! The furnace is running and I can hear a radio playing music and sometimes a DJ talking. Is it a form of tinitus?<br />
<br />
<br />
Oh, and if your dental assistant was listening to the same song over and over again...step away slowly.

I have heard music in white noise for years. One way I learned to tell if it was "fake" music was to see if it repeats longer than the length of a typical radio station song.<br />
Then, one time, I was at the dentist, with my mouth being worked on so I was unable to comment.<br />
During the whole hour they worked on my teeth, I heard a faint radio that was playing the same noise over and over. I had learned long ago that such "radios" were not real, and had long since quit looking for them.<br />
Be that as it may, when they let me up, I asked about any music they were playing. The dental assistant informed me that indeed, her ipod was on low volume, set to repeat the same song over and over! How about them apples! I guess there's an exception to every rule, huh?

Hi I am now 54 years old but when i was in my 30s i suffered from tinitus, it was like a humming noise that i only heard when in a silent room. That eventually cleared up but later in my late 30s i started hearing a radio station, again just in a quiet room or in bed. I could hear a DJ yapping on as they do and sometimes I heard songs that i recognised? I am sure that I was picking a radio station up somehow? I was afraid to go and see a Doctor incase they thought I was mad. It's about 20 years since I heard anything but often wonder what it was. The DJ was real and it sounded a modern r/station. I suppose I will never know what it was?

I constantly hear music or distant tv sounds, during white noise. I have checked other rooms uncountable times because it seems so real.

For years now when my air conditioner or fan is running I hear music playing. I can't make out the tune or hear words. Sometimes it is louder than other times but usually occurs at night upon falling asleep or in the morning when awakening. On the occassions it has been loud I have actually got up to see who in the house had music on or who's radio alarm had been randomly going off. Only to find the house was very quiet and everyone was asleep. I do experience psychic abilities and assumed the white noise of the A/C some how open that door more. I maybe totally off base with that thinking.... any imput would be helpful. :)

Wow! Delighted to have stumbled onto this forum. Over 60 years ago, I was flying in a light aircraft where I could just relax and hear familiar melodies and lyrics of my own choice within the sounds of the aircraft engine. I would love to find some sort of noise generator that would let me do that again.
