teens sticking it to the adults via "teen buzz" ringtone

teen buzz

As I was spring cleaning today, I saw a very backdated copy of NST (local newspaper), with an article about a special ringtone, called Teen Buzz that can be only heard by kids and not adults. I thought "Damn, this is interesting". So, like a good internet junkie, I Googled for it. Found it, swiped it from some website illegally, and uploaded it to Rapidshare.

I played it, I had no problem hearing it. I guess I'm not so old after all. Tried it on Mom, she can't hear it. I guess it works. Nice.

Brilliant, don't you think?

Oh, and please try it out. Try it on your friends. See if you or any of your friends hear anything. Do leave me a comment if you hear it or don't hear it.

P.S. You should hear a very sharp piercing sound.

I already did, just that I left it to Wiki to explain it. The reason why the adults can't hear the ringtone is because of presbycusis (hearing loss due to aging).

Basically as soon as you hit your 20-ies (and it goes from bad to worse as you age), you have problem hearing sounds that are broadcasted frequencies from 18 thru 20 kHz. Teen buzz is played on a constant 17 kHz frequency.
