There must be other people who can  hear this.
It sounds like a big machine away in the distance but the hum travels far.

That proves that it is NOT Tinnitus.

There is a free sound spectrum analyser android app aka program which can be used on mobile phones and computer tablets which support the android operating system, and it get some very good user reviews.

It needs an input from an internal or external microphone and it produces a graphical visual image of a sound source, which can also be downloaded and saved in the form of a CSV format file, which is this type of file format...  https://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch001356.htm

Someone such as a member of Belfast Council's noise monitoring team would be able to interpret the results of such a recording in terms of the likely cause of the sound.

The app/program is called keuwlsoft  Spectrum Analyser,... and it was created by a London software firm called Keuwl.

http://www.keuwl.com/about.html    ...   http://www.keuwl.com/SpectrumAnalyser/

It can be downloaded from here...

thehum dot info 

You are not alone. Stuff You Should Know did a podcast on the phenomenon a while back - documented cases of people topping themselves because of the irritation. A small percentage of the popn can hear it. It exists but the theories of it's source range from the plausible to the ridiculous.

Electricity transformers, they are never to far from your front door, hear them more in the still of the night.

I was thinking it might be the quarry up on Divis mountain.
Does anyone live near it ?

If the hum is continious 24/7 then it is most likely from a source which operates not-stop.  For instance where I live in Castlereagh PSNI main communication centre operates non-stop and they need large roof mounted air-conditioning units to keep there computers cool.  These units have large fans which emit quite a low frequency.  It took me a few years to trace the noise.  I was able to narrow down the source by listening carefully each time the wind direction changed.  When the wind was from the south-west it was quite loud but when the wind swung to the north-west the noise dropped considerably.

Air conditioning units have become more prolific in industry, offices and hotels over the past 5 years or so.
