Oh, now it makes sense

I heard em all, but I feel annoyed now and feel like I have headache... Maybe it's because I haven't slept?

Probably

If you crank the volume up to try and hear sound you really can't hear, you'll give yourself a headache.

This thread has got to be the single biggest source of irreversable hearing damage on the planet. Stupids flock to it like moths to a flame.

I didn't turn up the volume, just saying.

If the tones gave you a headache, you have the volume way too high.

I had my volume even lower than usual. Well it was 9 in the morning and I didn't sleep when I did the test ;) . I currently have vacation so my sleeping rhythym is fu***** up and today I will fix it.

Or the annoying high pitched noise is annoying.

Something doesn't need to be loud for it to cause a headache...

I can hear pretty high up 19-23khz(got that from playing test tones previously, not exactly accurate. Frankly I agree, its not really a advantage, though it does help me find problems with my mechanical designs. Otherwise, its a bit annoying when you could hear high pitch electrical noise(from my air conditioner and sometimes computers)

Police use bullhorns blasting out super high frequencies at high volumes to induce headaches in rioters. It works real good.

I found that Demon Days by Gorillaz uses the upper frequencies, if you pay attention at the end

Using this hotfix I can hear the same in my browser as I did in foobar with ASIO, i.e. I can only hear up to 19khz.

I usually transform into a bat and sit on a gargoyle in my listening room, but it's annoying when I have to revert to human form all the time to skip tracks or adjust the volume.
