What Do You Hear When You Put A Seashell To Your Ear

Hold a shell from the sea to your ear and people think you can hear the sea.

This is an old wives tale.

What you really hear is the sounds around you amplified so much that you imagine it sounds like the seaside.

The same effect occurs when you hold an empty glass to your ear and listen.

Another misconception is the idea that the sound is your blood rushing and coursing through your head and skull.
