Do blind blind people, in general, have enhanced hearing and other senses? So why do blind people seem to perceive things better with their other senses than the sighted? The net effect is verifiablely better hearing for certain tasks. So to conclude, individuals who are either born blind or blinded at a very early age do in fact seem to hear “better” than a sighted person in many ways. Take a sighted person and give them a bit of training, or just have them close their eyes and focus, and they are generally perfectly capable of the same.
