612.8 Hearing: Further Proof I'm Old!

Have read (and heard and seen!) about the ring tones that only young people hear...and more to the point, how students have added them to their cell phones so teachers can't hear. Sometimes also know as mosquito tones or teen buzz.

Here is a website that allows you to test what levels you can hear. And some more info available from the TechnoTuesday blog.
My results were pretty typical for an old dinosaur...but not the worst, so that made me feel a little better...hey, I'll take any little tidbit of age advantage I can at this point!
[the test doesn't open in district...everything else including the video does}

But you can just about hear some of these tones that those youngsters are on about so you're feeling moderately smug.

The highest pitched ultrasonic mosquito ringtone that I can hear is 10kHz
Find out which ultrasonic ringtones you can hear!

P.S. Drove my poor little Copper-boy to bury himself deeper and deeper into the couch cushions until I realized what was making him try to climb my back! (It was funny for just a minute and then I stopped the torture!)

I'm at 14.9 and it thought I was thirtysomething (not for sometime now, alas). How long before teachers can buy a device that will sit on the desk and "hear" the tones for them. Ringtone Monitors?
