the teenager audio test

Clicking the play button below will produce 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. The elderly and people with hearing damage often cannot hear the sound.

i am over 25 but my ears don't feel like they are. still, i failed this 'test'. can any young 'uns reading this blog confirm whether clicking the button actually produces any sound? i feel like i've been had.

nung nadownload ko na siya at pinatugtog locally, may narinig na ako.

pero di naman nakakarindi, para lang electrical hum ng CRT screen.

di ko malaman kung medyo matanda ako o medyo bingi.
