Anyone ever just hear a sound they can't find the source of?

I was sitting in my bed earlier and could have sworn I heard a single tone of the Emergency Alert System like you get on your phone for an Amber alert. It sounded like it was in another room. I checked my phone and there was nothing. No one else recalls hearing it.

The only other noise in the house was the kids playing with a toy police care and making siren noises.

You ever have this happen? Just swear you heard something and never figure out what it was?

Makes me feel a bit edgy to be honest.

At times we might think we are hearing things. Might is the big word here. Thought I heard my mother calling me once. Went down and asked what she wanted. She had not called / shouted anything at all. Other sounds might seem similar to other noises. Might be coming from outside the house. But we process the sound as coming from in the house. I live beside a train station. Used to hearing all sorts of sounds. Never know where they are coming from half the time. Not something you should worry over. Was just a sound.

Believe it or not, ear wax compaction can cause us to hear sounds that aren’t there. Happens to me many times. Sometimes it literally sounds like a radio is on, a broadcast of some kind. I was told it was the wax. The body is strange! But we react like it should function 100% logically. But that is not logical.

Check to see if you have any smoke detectors with low batteries. They easily can sound like they're coming from a different room.

I found it the TV was on in the other room when it happened, so I wonder if I didn't hear some noise from that.
