today a friend told me that people are making songs that have a really high pitch and because of that kids can hear it but adults can't....anyone know if it's true?

Mosquito noise, yes, by the shops that kids hang about to stop anti-social behaviour. One was at my local betting shop and it was really high pitched, I can see why it's effective.

Highly Doubtful...... I don't know how that could possibly work.

it actually works. once you hit puberty your ear develops so it cant hear it but people under 12 generally can hear it. they play it as an anti-loitering sound around places and i remember hearing about a ringtone made of that pitch so no adults could hear it

theres ringtones for kids to use on cellphones that work like that, but people don't make actual songs like that.

some kids use that as ringtones for their phones at school bcause their teachers cant hear it.

what's the point of making that kind of music?

it would be cool if we could play music during class that only students could hear lol

mosquito noise is bullsh*t , anyone with half decent hearing can hear it.

That's because you're 19 and not your hearing still hasn't matured enough.

lol can you imagine the parents!

Mom: So what do you want for dinner today?

The kids listening to a whiny high pitched voice of slipknot (lmao)

the parent is staring at him/her while their kid is listening to slipknot telling them to kill their parents....

It'd never work though, the parents and activist groups would be all over it. Besides, what of you're an adult and happen to be a fan of the same band?

Lol can you imagine listening to some metal-core "friendsoffoamy" sounding voice. It'd be hilarious

considering my 54 year old dad can hear it clear as day as well.

EDIT: Also, I don't actually have a functioning ear drum in my right ear, so my hearing is f*cked as well.

If they put it in songs, it'd have to be so high pitched...It would hurt...Its like listening to Gwen Stefani...Hurts...And is probably damaging...
#15
i actually played it like 30 times once during a class on a computer since the teacher was too old to be able to hear it. if you put it on a high volume it drives everyone insane. haha, good times...

What the hell are you on about. It's made for ages between 11-20 and the ringtone you heared is not the same thing because mosquito noise dosn't come from the same speaker as a phone and adults can hear it because phone frequency dosn't go that high.

Oh and it's not a song in case anyone dosn't understand; its a high frequency sound that's usually by shops.

well, kids can hear higher pitches than adults, but it would sound like nothing listenable to if you ever make a song that high pitched.

no

there are cell ringtones that do that, but the sound is so high-pitched that it's actually nauseating.
