Well to put it simply, when I hear an EVP it almost sounds as through someone is talking through a paper bag so to speak, more often than not there’s a metallic sound to it, I don’t know why, I don’t think anyone really knows. Another question I get asked a lot is “How do you hear EVPs”?
For a year I have wondered how to answer this question, then something clicked.
Imagine you’re outside your back garden looking in through the glass window at your family, you can see them right? Now if you concentrate hard enough you can view yourself in the reflection too, you can adjust your eyesight to see both, or one at a time (Your reflection and what’s BEYOND that glass window”
Hearing EVPs is exactly the same but with your ears, you have to listen BEYOND that hum, hiss and static. Earphones emphasise and AID you to hear better thus increasing your chances of hearing true EVPs.
This is the best way I can describe to you what an EVP sounds like, people may agree or disagree, EVPs come in many frequencies, so what I may hear clearly, you may hear it as a muffled sound or vice versa.
