Ongoing sound hallucinated after hearing it

What is it called when I hear a sound and it stops and then over time in the day I keep on hearing it?

It happened today again. This morning heard an ice cream van play repetitive song then it went away a few minutes later.

But then in the day I kept on hearing it over and over in the distance.

Is this hallucinations or just …?

It happened in the past too, when I heard a train one day at the beach and then it left but I kept on hearing it till we left but hubby said there’s no train. I have since then heard trains but not after the real ones. It was once.

I get this only sometimes. Or I’d hear phone alarm in distance but clearly.

It’s like an intrusive thought. It’s a form of ocd I think. It happens to me with sounds and smells.
