Main Question or Discussion Point
I know that as humans age their abilities to hear high pitched deteriorates, even if the rest of their hearing doesn’t. So why do emergency things like CO detectors use such a high pitched sound? I got to my in laws and their detector needed new batteries. Neither are hard of hearing but neither had any idea their detector was going off. Made me wonder if they’d even be able to hear it if it went off for real?
