The Top Sounds We Miss Hearing Include Live Music and People Cheering

Name a sound you used to hear a lot before the pandemic, but not anymore . . .



A new survey asked people to name the top sounds they’ve missed during COVID.  And live music got the most votes.



1.  Live music.  38% said it’s one of the top sounds they miss.


2.  Surround sound at movie theaters, 35%.


3.  Hearing a huge crowd cheering in person, 28%.


4.  The sound of kids or grandkids playing nearby, 24%.  (Isn’t that also a sound parents would love to STOP hearing right now?  One day alone would be great.)


Three out of four people think it’s more difficult to have a real conversation with masks.  57% say it’s a lot harder to have a good chat on Zoom than it is in person.  And six in 10 agree the pandemic has hurt our conversation skills in general.
