There have been many possible explanation of this sound. Two sources recorded were from mechanical sources in Kokomo, Indiana the first sound came from a cooling tower in from a casting plant and the second sound was from an air compressor from Haynes International Airport but people complained even after both the machines were fixed.

Few more sources were recorded from mechanical source in West Seattle, Wellington and Windsor. But majority of the sounds are not from the mechanical sources.

Tinnitus may also be the cause of these sounds as in Tinnitus people can hear sound without any external source but it fails to explain why the sound is audible in certain locations. Also some people experience the sound indoors whereas some hear the sound outdoors but some people hear the sound equally both in indoors and outdoors.
