gauss, unit of magnetic induction in the centimetre-gram-second system of physical units. One gauss corresponds to the magnetic flux density that will induce an electromotive force of one abvolt (10-8 volt) in each linear centimetre of a wire moving laterally at one centimetre per second at right angles to a magnetic flux. One gauss corresponds to 10-4 tesla (T), the International System Unit. The gauss is equal to 1 maxwell per square centimetre, or 10−4 weber per square metre. Magnets are rated in gauss. The gauss was named for the German scientist Carl Friedrich Gauss. Before 1932 the name was applied to the unit of magnetic-field strength now called the oersted, and it is sometimes still used in this sense (e.g., the Earth may be said to have a magnetic-field strength of about one gauss).

From looking at the scientific experiments, I get the impression that the magnetic fields are affecting the neurons in the brain directly, rather than affecting the ear.
Here's an experiment showing an effect on a single mollusk neuron. The frequency they used, 8.34 Hz is quite close to the frequency of the human alpha brainwave and the Schumann resonance.
From your link:
... electromagnetic fields (8.34 and 217 Hz) utilized in cell phones....
First thing I see is bad data. That frequency modulation may have been used on analog cell phones but current air-interface standards are trending towards digital encoding and spread-spectrum. Cell phones do not operate at those frequencies and in fact they operate between 700-910 MHz and 1710-2150 MHz. Notice the MHz? That's megahertz, not hertz. 8.34 Hz is just below the range of human hearing and 217 Hz is just below 1st C below middle C, if I remember properly. And it's a 'mussel' not a 'muscle' involved.
Still, I stand by what I was alluding to: that if the magnetic field strength was strong enough to influence anything within the auditory portions of the head- ears, brain... simple electromagnets placed in proximity to the ears or head should be sufficient to induce an auditory response as those electromagnets will obviously exhibit higher gauss readings than the ambient.
Auditory hallucinations feature prominently in many psychiatric disorders. It has been estimated that approximately 75% of people with schizophrenia experience auditory hallucinations. These hallucinations are also relatively common in bipolar disorder (20% to 50%), in major depression with psychotic features (10%), and in posttraumatic stress disorder (40%).
Not all auditory hallucinations are associated with mental illness, and studies show that 10% to 40% of people without a psychiatric illness report hallucinatory experiences in the auditory modality.
A range of organic brain disorders is also associated with hallucinations, including temporal lobe epilepsy; delirium; dementia; focal brain lesions; neuroinfections, such as viral encephalitis; and cerebral tumors.
Intoxication or withdrawal from substances such as alcohol, coc aine, and amphetamines is also associated with auditory hallucinations. Hypnagogic and hypnopompic hallucinations are especially common in healthy individuals and occur during the period of falling asleep or waking up. The frequency of these experiences in the general population may be evidence of the existence of a symptomatic continuum, which ranges from subclinical experiences of psychosis to full-blown psychotic episodes with severe, unwanted, and intrusive symptoms.
The phenomenological characteristics of auditory hallucinations differ on the basis of their etiology, and this can have diagnostic implications. People without mental illness tend to report a greater proportion of positive voices, a higher level of control over the voices, less frequent hallucinatory experiences, and less interference with activities than people who have a psychiatric illness.
There is also evidence that delusion formation may distinguish psychotic disorders from nonclinical hallucinatory experiences.9 In other words, the development of delusions in people with auditory hallucinations significantly increases the risk of psychosis when compared with individuals who have hallucinations but not delusions.
By contrast, characteristics of auditory hallucinations that are thought to be more indicative of psychosis include:
• Higher frequency of hallucinatory experiences
• Localization of voices outside the head
• Greater linguistic complexity
• Greater emotional response
• The extent to which patients believe that other people share this experience
Because of the multiple causes of auditory hallucinations, physicians must take care to obtain detailed histories from the patient, to assess for mood and psychotic symptoms, and to obtain collateral information. Laboratory tests and brain scans can also offer further clues to the underlying cause of the hallucinations.

Ironically, they sound exactly like as if coming from a radio.

I'd be careful about trying to do this kind of thing, good sir. I think it's mainly your imagination--but you probably are picking up on real things because you have a connection with those people. But I would caution you to be wary of what you hear and to not get too over-involved. You have to remain grounded.
With the static, it almost sounds like you might be talking about energy. Radiant aether--you should look into it.
I personally have always seen energy/aether. I also have spiritual discernment. I also have a pretty good intuition and I feel things from places and people. I think it's called clairsentience or something. Anyways, they don't intrude upon my life (besides giving me panic attacks sometimes if like all of a sudden the 'feel' of the day changes if that makes sense). They (my gifts) help me when the situation is right. It just happens and I don't actively try to do anything. But, I will admit I've messed around (when bored) and tried to do things like group all the energy together/make it change colors/move differently/make pictures with it--but that's just natural I think because I've always seen it (I used to think everyone could but apparently not). So basically what I'm saying is you can affect it because you are also energy.
Alls the energy is is 'reality' it is also 'time'. There are layers upon layers of it. Each particle moves infinitely--which is the vibration. Each particle also gives off its own radiance which is like all colors but none at the same time. It makes up everything--everything. From what you see to what you feel to what you dream and what you imagine. It contains all possibilities and all memories. I think awareness of it comes from being imaginative--being able to think for long periods of time without interruption. Einstein explained it way better than I can.

I could sometimes hear EVP using my own natural abilities, ESP maybe, without technology.
Ironically, they sound exactly like as if coming from a radio. Sometimes it sounds badly tuned and I could hear static with the sound or sometimes, it randomly gets weaker and then stronger.
It is affected by local weather phenomenon and dust storms can easily affect it just like radio.
I could sometimes hear my relatives who are still living. Often, I'd hear their conversation from the future.
Sometimes, I'll hear music that I never heard of. Not alien or strange in nature, I simply never heard of it, probably it's playing from another country or from the future. Sometimes I could even make out the lyrics. It sounds just like modern music and can be jazz, rock, or pop music.
I only have one problem. I seem to have a huge problem recalling what I hear. I am especially interested in the music. I could possibly write down the lyrics next time it happens but remembering the tunes will be the biggest problem.
The worst thing I ever heard sounds like a loud gunshot which promptly disconnects the EVP link.
Is this really how EVPs are supposed to be even if I"m hearing them with my own mind?

I wouldn't call any of your analyses humble.
Bully for you for being so special! Hope you get whatever it is you need.
"Yes, I have highly advanced imagination skills. I'm an engineer, inventor, a bit of a programmer, and an artist. I actually design most of my inventions purely in my head and it is highly detailed and 3D. I rarely write things down for security/secrecy purposes. I recall my memories in vivid detail and also in 3D."
