I Have the Ears of a Teenager, and Boy, Do the Police Have Questions For Me
I don’t usually do quizzes online, but this one made me curious: What’s the highest tone you can hear?
You are the typical teenager
You can hear the frequency of the mosquito teen repellent – but probably not for much longer!
The highest pitched ultrasonic mosquito ringtone that I can hear is 17.7kHz

I suspect I can actually hear tones higher than this, but my computer fan is too noisy to let me hear anything above this particular tone. Still, even this level is fine. It’s nice to know that all those years of drumming and dancing and just generally playing music stupidly loud have not entirely robbed me of the upper range of my hearing. It’s not so nice to know that I’ll be annoyed as any teen if I ever walk into a convenience store where they’re piping the “annoy the teens” tone through the speakers to thin out the kids. Stupid convenience stores.
