High-pitched breath sounds are often classified as wheezing. The sounds made are often described as having a musical or squeaky quality to them. It may sound like a person is whistling when breathing. While high-pitched wheezing most often occurs when breathing out, it can also sometimes occur when breathing in.

Why do I hear breathing in my room?

When was the last time I heard a breathing sound?

The last time these breathing sounds occurred was five years ago when I lived in Ireland, just outside Dublin. I was renting a nice little flat – small, but with a closed-off kitchen, closed-off bedroom, not one of the bedsits. The house cannot have been older than 30 years, although I am guessing.
