Can you hear it? I can't. My ears are too old. :frown:

*warning - just in case you don't read further than this post, a few people have mentioned later in this thread that this tone is actually painful*

I can hear it (or a harmonic), and I'll turn 30 in November.

The only thing I hear is a tiny little pop in the sound file at the very end. I was surprised because I am really sensitive to noise, but I guess that tone is out of my range.

Can you hear the whining from (especially older) TV flyback transformers? That's around 15Khz.

But you're a motorcycle rider, and, I'll guess, you ride without too much hearing protection.

Ouch! That hurts. Why would anyone want that as a ringtone?

Yeah, I can hear the TV whine also.

hmm.. I don't think I notice any noise around television sets, Nate.

Wolly, I think I did some damage to my hearing in my rock band days.

I bet someone will soon invent "The Mosquito Detector" to alert teachers to when those cell phones are ringing in class.

What surprised me is that I heard this is the same tone shop-owners were playing in and around their stores to discourage loitering teens (I started a thread about this a few months back.). I figured it was just a very annoying whine.

IIRC most schools don't allow cell phones or cell phone activity anyway.

If students were so inclined this could be used to, for example, morse.

It's an effective idea, for sure. It's more than annoying, it's painful! It really hurts.

They were very lenient about cell phone use in the Evo Childs school. I could call her while she was in class. Kids will usually SMS in class so they don't disrupt others.

You know the most simple solution to this is? Leave your phone on vibrate.

You can still hear the vibration, especially in a silent classroom.

I can easily hear it.

Flourescent lights and TVs can drive me nuts.
