The Sounds We Miss Hearing!

What sound do you miss the most?

A new survey on 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%.


Other sounds people said they miss include “sermons in the church” . . . “slot machines” . . . and hearing someone say “I love you” in person.


We’re also looking forward to having face-to-face conversations without masks on. 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.
