Wait a second, I thought the human hearing range was roughly 20Hz to 20kHz (some are above and below these two my minimal margins).  And anything under 20Hz could be felt (intrasonic sound).  Again, I could be wrong, but I could have sworn that is what it was...  If this is true, people can hear 20-30Hz.  Maybe even a 1-2Hz lower (maybe).  The rest below 20 would be felt.

LOL the photos are just too spot on......it had me up until the price, though I must admit, the few seconds I thought Jude was serious about hearing beyond 30Khz, I was just like "OK Jude" ahahhaha.....anyone know if sleek was also in on this...I'm assuming they gave Jude permission or somethin? 

 

I remember when the UE11 was announced just days before I purchased the UE10, I thought the 4 driver design was ridiculous, but now it's as if you need to cram 10 to get the same reaction! 

 

Only way to top this Jude is to announce a return to production of the Orpheus or R10.....think about it for next year!

Why Yes they were and they had a good laugh about too.

It makes me curious, is there an actual record for the highest frequency heard by a human ear?

post #264 of 303

I knew one guy who swore to me that he had experiences hearing well into the 40khz range.  You know how that goes...

 

I'm confident that I've heard about 20 to 24 khz myself.... last time i was at the audiologist he played me an 18 khz tone and I just faintly heard it, but my hearing was better long ago

Oh is'nt that the truth, Your ear's and eye's start going and it's pretty much down hill from there. What a drag it is getting old.

I find high frequency hearing a mixed blessing. Hearing the buzzing from TVs and fluorescent lights is no fun, not to mention those darned kids with their mosquito ring tones.

You hit the nail on the head with this!

I also hate those anti-loitering systems they install outside some buildings which are basically high frequency buzzers to drive the kids away. Gah, it's like a dog whistle shrieking in your brain!
