I can hear it, but unlike most, the sound has never bothered me much.

I've always been able to hear the teenager tone, and I'm 41. I just tried that scaled test and could easily hear 22.
This makes no logical sense considering I've blasted music my entire life and been to hundreds of concerts.
Maybe it can be an inherited trait or something...

i can hear up to 19 on those, but the ones past it (20, 21 and 22) are making noises that to *my ears* sound lower than the one at 19. like they either are not pure frequencies or my speakers can't pick them up. but 19 i can hear pretty clearly. i think i need better speakers.

When I was in high school, my economics teacher used to play this sound (or a one like it) to get us all in order when we weren't paying attention.

@Altaru - I could hear all of those, including the 22khz one. Is that usual?

good link Altaru. I got somewhere between 15-16kHz - 15 was clear as, 16 i could sort of 'feel' it, but equally, could be my brain playing silly buggers. What's the average (average being a very broad term) frequency response for a)a laptop's sound card, and b)cheap headphones?

Here we go...

This linkhas a scaled test from 8khz to 22khz.

And it's not specifically teenagers. It's meant to say people over 25.

I'm pretty sure Oatmeal played something in the 13-14khz range, which is still audible at slightly older ages.

15 is usually the cut-off for people over 25.

But, as with everything is this crazy, messed-up world, there are exceptions...

As for me... I can hear up to 16. Used to be able to hear up to 19, I think, maybe higher, but I started listening to my music at pretty high volumes almost 24/7...

Okay, to all the nay-sayers...

I know this frequency, and this is the first time I have to say the Oatmeal did it wrong. He didn't use the right frequency.

Let me see if I can find a more accurate test, with multiple levels.

That was actually a rather low-frequency version of the test. I've heard much higher before.

Actually, I did a spectrum analysis on this, and it's a different sound from the one posted last year. It still has a peak at around 13KHz, but there are a lot more lower-frequency tones mixed in to make it sound all gnarly.

Too much rock 'n' roll and firearms for these old ears. I did drop it down an octave so I could hear it, and it's pretty annoying.

I put up a pic of the wave form for this sound when Fancy posted it a year and a half ago. My original reply is here.

I'm 32 and have hearing loss from years of listening to music way too loudly, but I heard it clear as a cricket on meth.

16, and half deaf in my left ear since I was born, can't hear a thing. Dragged my little brother in my room to hear it and he started flipping out, while I'm like "So it DOES work then."

If I put my ear less than an inch away from the speaker, I heard the faintest squealing type noise, but it's so light that I can't figure out if I'm imagining it or not.

Okay. I heard it on the second try when I turned the volume up a couple of clicks and I am old (58). Did not bother me though.
