"Jono: You won didn't you?
Dazai: Oh, you knew that?
Jono: Yes. Perspiration, body temperature, the sound of muscles, rather than losing light, what I can see has increased... I know your fate for tomorrow too.
Dazai: Really?
Jono: Yes. Tomorrow won't come to you."
― Bungo Stray Dogs
"Living creatures make lots of sounds. They often speak volumes about a person. Breathing, heartbeats, blood circulating...by listening to the sounds they produce, they often tell me what someone was thinking."
― Zenitsu Agatsuma (Kimetsu no Yaiba)
"Why do American conspirators whisper so loudly?"
― Shang-Chi (Marvel Comics)

Capabilities

Users can hear with amazing clarity, distance, and even frequencies outside the normal range. User's ears can pick up every single sound, can decipher layer upon layer of differing sounds/conversations, locate the source of noise or pick up a sound from a mile away in a busy city.

Applications

  • Accelerated Hearing: Hear everything at an accelerated rate.
  • Blindsight/Echolocation: By hearing the changes of sound.
  • Heartbeat Detection: By sensing heartbeats without placing ears to a person's chest via sounds, echoes, etc.
  • Infra-Sound Hearing: Ability to hear infra-sounds which are below the normal hearing range since infra-sounds are produced by several natural forces the user is able to sense natural disasters (earthquakes, volcanoes, etc.) Several machines produce these voices as well, so a user could hear when they start malfunctioning.
  • Invisibility Awareness: By listening to the sounds of the invisible beings.
  • Lie Detection: By sensing changes via heartbeat detection, and in strain invoice, etc.
  • Parabolic Hearing: The ability to focus hearing to a certain area or filter out everything but the wanted sound. Aural a version of Telescopic Vision.
  • Sound Detection: Via listening in for specific frequencies that all things vibrate at for advanced tracking capabilities.
  • Sound Tracking: Via homing in on the origin of a sound.
  • Ultra Hearing: The ability to hear ultrasounds which are above the normal hearing range. These are mostly produced by animals, which gives a notable edge for a hunter.
  • Underwater Hearing: The ability to hear underwater with perfect clarity.
