Deaf Hearing

Deaf hearing is the ability of individuals with hearing impairment to react to auditory stimuli without actually sensing it. This is possible by using other senses such as the somesthetic sense to detect sound waves; thus, some deaf people can actually feel the waves of pressure produced by the sound waves. For instance, a deaf singer prefers to go barefoot when performing on stage so she can perceive the rhythm of the music from the speaker systems.
