How high does it go? Mine is 16kHz, but I can definitely feel stuff above it and it hurts my head.

Wasn't there a thread or discussion about this like, ages ago?

Anyway, I can normally hear about 18kHz. If the sound is very loud, and/or I wear earphones, I can hear up to 21kHz and down to 20Hz.

Supposedly after we hit age 19 it's almost impossible to hear anything above 18-20kHz, though.

There are rumors that some stores play very high frequency noises to keep teenagers out lol.

If I ever open up a store I'm going to burn it down for the insurance.

Wait what were we talking about.

I can heard to 19Hz (I think I could to 20... but I really don't remember that well) and I have 23 years old. And Toast can just at 17Hz (if my memory doesn't fail).

So apparently my only problem is that I can't remember stuffs so well. But I can listen pretty well.

thats true, i think they were called mosquitos, they just emit a noise that apparently only younger people can hear, imagine living near one of those O-o

Just google "mosquito hearing test" or "high frequency hearing test". Something like that.
