Clairaudience is one of the more common forms of Ectomancy, as far as can be determined. It is a fairly broad category, as the degree of the ability, as well as how it shows itself, varies widely. Clairaudients hear ghosts.

This is not to be confused with hearing voices of ghosts, or auditory manifestation. Clairaudience sense the presence of spirits through their ears, but they do not receive constant messages. A “whispering sound” may be heard, but generally not distinct words. Most commonly, a kind of auditory static, or hissing, is experienced, as well as a feeling of pressure in the ears when walking near a spirit.
