Woman Records Terrifying "Ghost Voice" on Sleep App

[Audio] Woman’s Smartphone Sleep App Records Terrifying “Ghost Voice” Responding to Her Sleep Talking


Sleep apps are a great way to monitor your sleeping habits and make sure that you’re getting a full night’s rest, but when they start recording ghosts talking to you in the wee hours of the morning, they’ll probably have the opposite effect. That’s what happened to one woman when she played back her midnight recordings only to hear a ghostly man’s voice whispering answers to her sleep talking.. and she lives alone.

Most sleep apps will start recording audio the second they hear any kind of movement in the room, that way you’ll know exactly when your sleeping becomes restless. Unfortunately, sometimes the apps also record the sounds of ghosts talking to you in your sleep. After discovering something terrifying on the audio playback, a woman named Jenny turned to the internet for help in figuring out her ghostly problem.

Jenny, who who goes by the screen name Redwantsblue80, had been using a popular app called “Sleep As Android” to help improve her sleep for a month before it captured anything other than the normal snoring and coughing, but at 2:04AM on October 30th, the app began to record an unexplainable clicking sound that grew louder and louder throughout the night. After a few hours of the clicking passed, Jenny’s voice can clearly be heard asking, “what are you doing?”


What she recorded next could send chills down anyone’s spine.

Responding to her sleepy inquiry is very clearly a man’s voice replying “nothing”. Not only did Jenny have no memory of the event in the morning, she swears there were no men in the house at the time of the recording.

“The clicks become very loud… and at the very end of the recording you hear the same voice say “That’s them” (I think?). I am pretty creeped out by this. I don’t remember being awake that night. The only plausible explanation is that I answered my own sleeping talking but the voice doesn’t even sound like me or something I could emulate.” – Jenny


As expected, there were more theories tossed out in her thread than you could shake a stick at, all of which were equally as terrifying as the next. Many of the readers pointed out that the male voice on the recorder falls into the 95Hz zone, while the posters voice is 265Hz, and that would be pretty much impossible for her to emulate that vocal tone.

“Your voice’s pitch in the question “what are you doing?” is around 265Hz (C4 in musical notes) and the answerer’s voice seems to be around 95Hz (F#2). That is relatively low voice for even a man.

Unfortunately the recording seems to have clipped a lot of the lower frequencies, which makes it seem like the “man’s” voice is around 190Hz. But there’s a little hint of the 90Hz tone left, and judging by the upper frequencies and some test recordings of my own voice (I’m a man) it definitely seems and sounds like a man to me. If I had a recording of you talking normally and then trying to make a really low voice I could definitely tell if my theory is true.”

Many asked about the possibility of an intruder, pointing out that the “clicking” recorded sound more like the someone rummaging though the posters belongings, and though Jenny agreed that was the most logical explanation, many were still not convinced, as absolutely nothing had been taken from the house. 


After months of continued recording, Jenny updated the thread saying there had been no unexplainable recordings since the original, and that she had decided to move out and find a new, less creepy, place to live… and after listening to the audio recording I can’t say I blame her.

    After listening to the clip a few times, I think the second word the male voice says is “Jenny”. Definitely creepy.

    Thanks for this article. I actually want to try that app. I’ve already seen a shadow person in my house that I do not believe was merely the sleep paralysis phenomenon, and have wanted to try to capture some evidence.

    I’m not sure which is scarier – a ghostly response to a person sleep talking, or an intruder replying!

      Agreed. I think I’d rather the ghost than the intruder. The dead can’t hurt us. The living CAN.

      Right! Of course, the intruder is definitely scarier.

      The dead can’t hurt you but demons can and will if you’re not strong enough to protect yourself or invite them in.

    Well that’s creepy!

    Kind of feel like the second utterance of the male voice is, “It’s them.” as in, I’m not the one doing anything… it’s them. Them!

    Looks like it happened while in REM sleep. It’s probably a dream projection. This is when spirits are most likely to communicate with empathic mediums. Alternately her phone may have had a recording of some previous conversation and somehow superimposed this snippett while recording her sleeping. Either way, very strange.

    Hello there… I live in SE country where I have been experiencing some events since the past. Can I write the story for your website for sharing with others?

    To me, it sounds like: “What are you doing?” “Nothing, Jenny” “It’s them”. The last phrase is very clear, but the first time the voice speaks it’s so low and mumbled that it is open to many interpretations.

    I’ve got the app but all I’ve captured so far is me talking/laughing and singing in my sleep along with teeth grinding and the odd fart

    I’m a 9 yr EVP tech… 1st sounds to me like “NOTHING” and the 2nd “DAVENPORT” (my grandmother’s generation –word for sofa)

    Bologna, that is someone clearly in her room. What is that “slapping sound?” hahaha

    Sounds like someone what taking pictures of her in her sleep and she was awakened by the noise.

    The voice sounded like a black male. The clicking noises sounded like someone openeing her pill containers. At one point he gets closer to her phone and he says “I’m going to sample some of dat, Jane.”
    If that’s her real name, the person in her house knows who she is. I think if I were her I’d be asking the police to fingerprint the place and make sure her identity wasn’t compromised (credit card theft, bank account drained, bills or expenses put in her name, etc).

    I had the same think happen to me.. I am a man and my sleep app android recorded a clicking noise and then I heard a response to something I said in my sleep. The voice is a high pitched woman’s voice. It was recorded while I was snoring so I know it was not me. I believe her! I have many recordings and it is scary.

    This is why I refuse to download sleep monitoring apps. I’d love to find out whether I talk in my sleep or not but I do not want to hear anything else.
