If you can hear these sounds, you're superhuman
Some sounds are simply not made for the human ear
Think you have perfect hearing? Well, there's actually a world of sounds you can't hear. Most of these sounds are produced by things in nature, but there are some that are also human-made. The reason you can't hear some sounds is because of how the human body has evolved to interact with sound. The range of human hearing starts at around 20 hertz, and tops out at about 20,000. And as we age, our hearing gets worse, eliminating even more sounds from the range of audible noises. For comparison, bats can hear ultrasonic sounds with frequencies of up to 110,000 hertz.
