Not only is this a "Sandwich looks like Jesus" - only with audio, it's even worse when you hint people at the context in which that noise is supposed to be something else than...noise.
They're still not doing that good of a job at guessing.
Also, why are the statements always so short and mysterious, why aren't they telling a proper story?
Are they all brain damaged?

They have to use other sounds (in the case of environmental audio manifestations) or material particles (in the case of EVPs) to create audio sounds that will represent words to the ears and minds of material sentient beings.
They use already existing natural environmentally produced sound waves (like wind cutting through eaves, water dripping, bits of bird chirps, rustling of leaves, etc)
and they arrange and rearrange magnetic particles on tape
, and line up highs and lows within digital files, when communicating via EVPs. Some of them are better at it than others are - just as you'd expect.
When communicating directly to a single person (one-to-one) they place the "words" directly into the data stream that is heading to the part of the brain that processes hearing,
It's telepathic in nature, which is a lot easier, mechanically, to put together.
EVPs are short and often clumsy because it takes real experience and physical finesse to master the process. The environmentally contained audio manifestation is the hardest to accomplish, and this is why they're knocks and bangs and moans at best. That said, each form of audio manifestation has its value.
Each form accomplishes something different for the discarnate entity. Actual messages from loved ones overwhelmingly involve the use of telepathy between the deceased and the target of the message. Environmental audio is used to make a "statement" that will be heard by more than one person - eliminating doubt that the sound did occur.
It's rightly assumed that most EVP messages are viewed by researchers in the field
The "spirit" does what it can to get the imprint configured in time for it to be available when the ghost hunter brings it up for replay. Not much time to be eloquent in most cases.
These are people, and it's a real effort to do what they're doing in these cases.
Most of these folks aren't as eager to prove that they're there as some of them are.
They see us in the same way that we see fetuses resting within their mommas' wombs.
They're curious, and they like to watch us kick and adjust under our mom's abdomen skin.
