I can hear it, and I also played in rock & jazz bands for years & attended many concerts that were way too loud. Interesting.
Never criticize someone else until you have walked a mile in their shoes. Then, when you do criticize them, you will be a mile away from them and you will have their shoes.

Loud and clear.

So can anybody NOT hear it ?
It's times like this I wish I'd listened to what my Grandad used to say...

This belongs in the "Bad Mood Club" topic, because once you listen to it, you are in one...

I can hear it, I am 24 and have played in a very loud band, Gone to hundreds of metal concerts, mowed yards with no ear plugs and suffer from high tone hearing loss, and I could still hear it.

OMIGOD I DON'T BELIEVE IT!

First I converted it unto a .wav file and had a look at it in SoundForge. Very odd - the waveform looked like a thick straight line - only when I expanded and EXPANDED the view did it split into a picture of a really high frequency wave.

Okay, so I saw it.

Then I played it for my 15-year-old. We had been talking about the sound just the other day. I have really cheap speakers - I warned him that I wasn't sure I could get them to play a frequency that high.

He said "I hear it!" - I heard nothing. Like an idiot, I half-disbelieved him. Surely I would be able to hear it - I, who used to be able to hear the ultra-high tone emanating from the electronics of cheap TVs. I cranked it up ... nothing. Nothing at all. Looked over at the kid, and he was scrunched up in pain.

Sorry, pal. The old man's not getting any smarter (or any better in the hearing department). Guess those years of playing deejay with headphones and the volume at "11" left their mark.

Boys and girls, don't try this at home!

One more question.

I am 44. I hear it, but it is fairly quiet.

So, how *loud* is it to you? Perhaps this will provide more information.

I hear it, but I'm also a musician. To all the musicians out there: Does it sound like a "C" to you also?

I'm 31 and have been a DJ for 15 years. I heard it, but I could only stand it for two seconds. It is still ringing in my ears after 3 minutes. I didn't even have the volume turned up loud at all and it blocked all other sound off.

My head hurts

In might be a D musically (for deafness caused by it)

I'm 47 and could barely hear it, but I'm half deaf anyway. Then again maybe it can't get by my hair - that's why you can hear it so clearly MrBillDEntertainer.

Sounds about like what happens when monitor flyback transformers go. Or the ballast goes on a fluorescent light.
