This appears to be a pure 1Khz tone (which is a C#) at -150db. I didn't hear it, and I'd be real surprised if anyone could hear it. Still, if it annoys teenagers, I'm down.

I heard it! I heard it!

Larry and Rebecca - Interesting!

OWWWW! That hurt my ears! :(

I hear that sound sometimes in class. Some kids have it as their ringtone, and think I can't hear it. They're always surprised when I bust them with their phones out.

How could anyone not hear that? The cats heard it too, but they won't admit it!b

I didn't hear it---not because I'm 66 but because I need a plugin which I couldn't find (new laptop!!!!)

Jen, Peggy and Lorna - Wide variety of ages of people who hear it and don't hear it. I swear, I heard nothing at all.

I heard it, but Roxi heard it more clearly, I think. It was annoying! Maybe this is why I hate shopping malls?? Trudy did not like it.

Interestingly, the word verification for this post was "whing" which is possibly more annoying than that noise ;-)

I can hear it, much more so in my left ear than right.

Just - I heard nothing at all. Nothing!

Jack - I guess I should get my hearing checked.
