    I can hear it, but I've always had very sensitive hearing.

    Yep... I heard that annoying ass sound. Uh oh icon_eek.gif ... does anyone else get the feeling there is a hidden frequency that only gays can hear? Has anyone on here NOT been able to hear it?

    Of course most anyone can hear it if the intensity is loud enough. I haven't measured it, but the sound appears to be maybe around 15k Hz. Most humans above 25 do have raised thresholds for anything beyond 8k Hz. Especially if they've been exposed to loud sounds.

    The only way to tell how sensitive your hearing is to have an audiogram done. Then even go further to an OAE (Otoacoustic emission). Usually infant females exhibit some SOAEs (Spontaneous Otoacoustic Emissions).

    I get tested often just because. I produce about two different SOAEs from my Right Ear and one SOAE from my left. It basically means that my cochlea is producing vibration (soud) constantly without stimulation and sending it out the ear canal. Pretty neat stuff

    Yeppo. I'm 52 and can still hear it. Ya know why? I've never used ear-buds nor have I ever been to a live rock concert, nor listened to a stereo cranked way up!
    I swear if you wanna make money, invest in a hearing aid company, because with the younger generation listening to iPods, etc. all day long they are going to be deaf before age 30. I think that's the major reason behind these megaphone tailpipes that make a VW or a Honda sounds like a farting mosquito....they've blown their 'bass hearing' and can only hear high notes!

    There's really no way to lose your low frequencies before your high frequencies unless it's due to infection (meningitis is a good one) or a tumor. You're right about the hearing aid companies. That's where all the money is in the field.

    Maybe not Debussy81::....but tell that to the guys who can't seem to listen to a car stereo without shaking the mirrors of the car on the next corner!
    HINT: If your license plate screws are rattling....it's too loud for your own good!

    Tell me about it. . . It's just more job security for me. It's like putting a big bowl of taffy in the dentist's waiting room.

    just yesterday we get stuck at a red light with the top down next to a guy's vibrating car. i said to my friend, just wait, in 20 years our tax money will be paying for that asshole's hearing aid.


    OMG! you did not just say that?!? Now the anti-freedomfighters have a reason to try to ban all loud music/sounds on the basis of "national health care costs to society" Just as soon as they get done passing a tax on your MickeyDs and cola.......
    What a Pandora's box you opened! tsk, tsk!

    It was like a dog whistle. I'm kinda shocked I heard it considering all the concerts and raves I've subjected my ear drums to..icon_confused.gif

    That was awful. I am a musician/teacher, though, and I hear annoying sounds all day long during the week haha. I'd be interested in learning whether or not the oldest professional musicians could hear it. I would estimate yes.
