    Well I am an adult and yes I can hear that, friggen kills my ears though.

    Its because when you age the 'little hairs' in your ear start to fall out and higher and lower tones become dulled. I almost hope I can't hear that soon.

    That hurts my ears very badly, and my 45 year old mom can hear it fine.
    I try to Command+Shift+/ when I can.

    I don't have my volume up very loud, but I can hear it and I don't think it is painful.

    Yeah I can hear it, it doesn't hurt my ears.. it is a bit annoying though.. Im 30, but I would find it interesting to see if anybody else older than me can hear it. 45 year old mom can hear it? I would say it's not quite working the way they want.. or we all have good hearing

    49. Can hear it, but not all that well. I guess I'm suffering from old age high frequency roll-off. What freq is that, BTW?

    I heard about this a few weeks ago. You are only supposed to be able to hear it clearly up to something like 25 or so.
    I am 33 and I can't hear it at all. They were playing it on a morning radio show here and my girlfriend was physically ill from hearing it, then again, she is 8 years younger.
    We played it in class at school and I and the professor were the only two who didn't hear a thing. The rest of the class whose ages range from 19 to 24 all heard it.

    I'm 25 and I can hear it clear as day. When I first heard about the tone I thought I wouldn't considering the punishment I've put my ears through throughout my metal days. My roommate could hear it too. Annoying is right.

    I'm 21... I can hear it... in fact it kills my ears. But the older people in my office (35-65) couldn't hear it at all. Seems like it works pretty well... But I'm sure there will be a few unlucky students that will have the one teacher in their school that can pick it up.
