The Taos hum derives its name from the town of Taos, New Mexico, one of the places where the hum can be heard by "hearers" (as they call themselves).
In case anyone was remembering another story of "Strange Sounds," it was and is the "Taos Hum." This notably occurred in the early 1990s.
The Taos hum is an extremely mysterious and widespread phenomenon that seems to have no discernible cause. It is a humming sound that is very disorienting for a person who experiences it and it seems to have an effect on people that are located in certain areas around the globe. The strangest part about it is that not all people in these areas hear it and it seems to be a very real thing.
The Hum is a phenomenon, or collection of phenomena, involving a persistent and invasive low-frequency humming, rumbling, or droning noise not audible to all people. Hums have been widely reported by national media in the UK [ 1 ] and the United States. [ 2 ] The Hum is sometimes prefixed with the name of a locality where the problem has been particularly publicized: e.g., the " Bristol Hum", the " Taos Hum", or the " Bondi Hum". [ 3 ] Data from a Taos Hum study suggests that a minimum of 2% and perhaps as many as 11% of the population could detect the Taos Hum and the Daily Telegraph in 1996 likewise reported a figure of 2% of people hearing the Bristol Hum. [ 4 ] For those who can hear the Hum it can be a very disturbing phenomenon and it has been linked to at least 3 suicides in the UK. [ 5 ] However, amongst those who can not hear the hum and specialists such as audiologist David Baguely alike, there has been scepticism about whether it in fact exists. [ 6 ]
Citizens in Britain and portions of the Southwestern U.S. have been complaining about a maddening hum that just won't go away.
Mysterious booms, annoyingly persistent hums, and underground mechanical rumblings that defy explanation In January, 1999, a loud boom at 12:15 a.m. disturbed the residents of Colorado Springs and Denver. Some witnesses said the noise was accompanied by a flash of light in the sky.
UPDATE 1/1: I overlooked something important.
We've been having a bit of a noise problem in our neighborhood. The teenage kid who lives a few houses down the street has decided to become a rock star.
If you listen closely, you’ll find that the earth is full of sounds.
Since the end of 2011 through the beginning of 2012 the internet has been abuzz with a new phenomenon I am calling Unidentified Strange Sounds or USS’s. Others have called these amazing noises Sky Quakes.
