I'm still pissed, so I will not log off if I can't hear the song. I tried it again to make sure. Does it sound like a buzzing sound? You know, like a fly is flying around you and you can't kill it and it bugs the hell outta you????? If not, then I was hearing things. :cry: :cry:

It hurts my ears! I was just watching the news about this a couple days ago and I thought it was pretty cool! Have you ever had a hearing test? It sounds like those high frequency sound pitches.

There are several ringtones at different frequencies. I'm almost certain that there's one that you can't hear.

I can hear up to 18,000Hz
My brother in-law (12 years old) can hear up to 19,000Hz
My wife can only hear up to 17,000Hz :P

Lennye, if you can't hear the originally posted tone then you probably won't hear any of these... :(

I heard something painful with herdphones, When turned sound too loud.. What the point if adults cant hear it... I can understand, if it's something painful that only teachers can heard to make they crazy..

But I could hear all of them, though. What's up with that? All of them have the sound of misquitos flying. A lot of misquitos to make that sound, I assume. Is it right or am I hearing things again? :?
