    So.... who can hear this?

    Weeburt thought I was lying when I told him I couldn't hear it but I seriously don't hear a thing. What is really unfair is that husband, who is 3 months younger than me and who has worked in very noisy environments for 25+ years, *can* hear it!

    I heard it. But those high pitched sounds have always been easy for me to hear. It is the low ones I have more difficulty with.

    Just had easy child come out of her room. She is holding her ears because it was so loud it bothered her.

    Nope not here either......although the cat looked around a little. I saw something about these on tv once. Something about once people hit a certain age, they can't hear whatever frequency that ring tone is.

    P.S.
    I just asked difficult child if he could hear it......he said it hurts his ears. Brat.


    Hee hee hee......I asked him what it sounded like...he said it's a really high pitch and hurts. It's like you're torturing your kid.

    Really.

    Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm :devil:

    It sounds like a cricket gone opera - and yes, it was annoying.

    I can't hear a thing either. I'm going to ask Missy if she hears it tomorrow. She has some auditory issues. It would be interesting to know if she hears it.

    I can't hear anything with the volume turned all the way up and I just had a full hearing test done by an ENT and was told my hearing was fine.

    I'll have to try it with my students tomorrow. This should be interesting.

    I heard a very slight chirping with the volume at max. Very annoying. A cricket gone opera was a good description.

    I could barely hear anything (kind of a weird electric pulse), Duckie heard it and said it was a cell phone. :hammer:
