Teenager Audio Test

Created by Train Horn

I'm not sure how legit this truly is, but this Teenage Audio Test is interesting. Tell me if you can hear it in the comments.
...a tone that is generally only heard by people under the age of 25. It has been used as a deterrent device to keep teenagers from loitering in malls and shops, and sounds similar to a buzzing mosquito. Typically the longer you listen to it, the more annoying it gets.
I can definitely hear the noise, and it is almost painfully annoying. I'm 24 years old by the way, so I just made the age cutoff.

  1. I can hear it and I'm 29 years old (30 this summer). It's almost painful, in fact.

    I wonder if it's used in malls and shops (besides to keep teens from loitering) to make people more irritable and, therefore, more likely to make impulsive purchases. Hm...

  2. This made my day! I can hear it - and I am much older than the cut off age:)
