Do you notice that sound is faster in the morning?

post #1 of 54

When I wake up and immediately grab my headphones and listen to them the sound plays faster than it would regularly. I can't be the only one who has noticed...

I believe the denser (colder in the morning) the air is, the more sound waves travel.

Someone who knows and not believes? It doesn't matter what time it is. It still happens.

Hello!

According to my own logic, when in the morning, your ears are awake! Really active! That is why, you find the music faster. In the evening, when you are tired, your ears are tired too! So they sound slower, less detailed

That would not make sense. Automatic functions cannot be exhausted. We will always taste food, our heart will always beat. Hearing is a nervous function. That is like our touch being damped if he keep touching stuff.

It does for me! At nights, sometime when I lie down, put my IEMs on and start the music, things slow down and low female vocals sound like males!

I agree with your statement and yeah, I think my method of think is wrong after reading yours!

Sound travels more slowly in cold air

If you mean travel further wouldn't that just change the volume?

Do agree with this. Ears can and do get tired. My ears are often more sensitive after sleep.

Sound I hear is influenced at different time, I don't know why. Maybe temp or my ear condition?

I higly doubt temperature will make any greater difference.
