What's wrong with my hearing? I can hear electronic hums that other people cannot hear.

In brief: Depends

Adolescents can hear wave lengths that adults can't hear. So if you are young then that is probably what you are experiencing.
If you are older it may be that you perceive sounds more distinctly than others. Also, add people are very sensitive to sounds, to the point of distraction. They can "hear" light bulbs, eg.
