Is this known as "wife selective hearing"?My hearing has become really, really bad
However, I can still hear the high pitched sounds, so birds, bats, electrical things, dog whistles, etc., I can hear no bother. I even hear the phone ring in the house when I'm outside in the garden.
I just can't hear male mumbles or someone behind me, and the telephone is a real struggle.
Here is a screenshot I took with my phone using an app called SpectralPro Analyser. I could see the bat but I couldn't hear him.
The bright line in the middle at just over 9kHz is his squeak. The green fuzz at the bottom is background traffic noise.
