    All but that last one, and I'm 36 years old with hundreds of concerts and hours of earplugs for the last two and a half decades.

    Is it bad that I can't make it stop now?

    I couldn't hear anything on any of 'em either. I can't help wondering if it's a scam ...

    Could hear the first 2, after that, nothing.

    I heard the lowest, low and medium pitches, but nothing after that. I think I'm going to have a headache now.

    I know exactly when...

    I heard the first 2.

    I know precisely the 2 incidents that have my 26 year old ears so bad.

    Strung Out and Pennywise at Clutch Cargo in Pontiac Michigan.

    Roger Waters - In the Flesh tour at Van Andel Arena in Grand Rapids Michigan.

    I hear them all except for the last one, but all but the second to the last sound the same.

    I hear all but the last one.

    My 11 year old son listened, and complained that all but the last two hurt his ears, to the degree that he asked me to turn them off.

    I heard the first 5 but not the "freaks only" one.

    I read in our paper that some kids have been surprised when they get these ringtones and some of their teachers, especially the younger ones, can hear them ringing in the classroom. Guess they've been told that nobody over 21 can hear them...

    Ditto, all but the last one. And I'm nearly 42 (but I look much younger...).

    I could hear all except the last one too.

    It reminds me of this gadget mum had to stop the dog we used to have from barking- it used some high pitched frequency that only dogs are supposed to hear (and be annoying and painful for them- therefore they stop barking)

    My twin bro and i could hear it quite clearly and it was very painful- so it shut the dog up and us too!

    This must be a gag. I can't hear a thing. Oh wait, I'm blind in one ear and can't see out of the other.

    Really, I can't hear any of them. I'm getting old.

    28 - I can hear all but the highest one. The second to highest one was really faint to me. My 24 y/o fiancee could hear them all. So I DO have selective hearing.

    Ditto... Except for the being 32. Not that I'm not almost there.
    However, after reading how prolonged IPod usage at high volumes could damage your hearing I imagine I'll be much less sensitive in a couple of years.

    I'm not even going to try this.....

    I've got well documented upper frequency hearing loss in both ears (thank you, Pink Floyd's The Wall), and I woke up this morning to find I have about 90% hearing loss in the left ear. ( I'm hoping this latest thing is allergies....)

    Yep... The last frequency was probably one of the harmonics of her voice.
