Nine Sounds You'll Probably Never Hear Again


We found a list online of sounds you’ll probably never hear again, and some are pretty recent . . . although the sound of a modem connecting DOES feel like it was 100 years ago.

Anyway, here are nine sounds that are either extinct, or so rare today that they might as well be . . .

  1. A factory whistle starting or ending a shift.
  2. A mechanical cash register.
  3. A steam locomotive.
  4. A car backfiring.
  5. A dial-up modem.
  6. TV static.
  7. A busy signal.
  8. A pager.
  9. A fax machine.
