    "Sense of hearing" or "sense of sound"?

    Dear All,

    Well, I have noted that very few people use de term "sense of sound" to refer what I have known as "sense of hearing". I googled the term to see whether I was right, wrong or missinformed. The results? Well, I only found one website using it to refer I know as "sense of hearing". Anyway, I am still doubting whether this is correct. Can we refer to hearing as "sense of sound"? Is this correct or accepted? THanks in advence for your help.

    "Hearing" is a sense. "Sounds" are what we hear.
