Are you a dog? 🐶

Crazy cows, smoking cats, squirrels, green fucked up octopuses and gigantic rats… this forum has them all! Now, how much of a dog are you? Can you hear like a dog?

When you are born you can hear up to certain frequency and then it only goes down. I was with a friend who is older than me in a supermarket and she couldn’t hear a very annoying noise coming from some stupid extractor in the ceiling. I couldn’t believe that she couldn’t hear it!

Anyway, maybe any of us will be able to hear such high pitch noises in 20 years from now because… yeah, our hearing range becomes narrower.

How old are you and what’s the highest frequency you can hear? and how low?

That could be pretty good depending on your age. I’m above what is supposed to be normal for my age, I think it was 15400 Hz or so, but again it was veeeeeeeery low.

Unless you tell them.

Even then, they might not believe you.


This was a thing, like, ten years ago. “The Mosquito” they called it. Kids were using it as a ringtone that their teachers couldn’t hear. A shopkeeper used it as a teenager repellent because he didn’t like the locals loitering around his door. Iirc he was ordered to stop because it was disturbing the peace.

Never seen one of those… :idunno:

I’m between 42 Hz and 14,500 Hz. And I have seriously bad tinnitus from all the years of Rock 'n Roll. 55 years old.
So I guess I’m not deaf yet.

The notification on my phone:

DrewC replied to you… Are you a dog? Damn, son… you have super hearing.

:rofl:

In fact, 18000 is still quite clear to me. It’s almost…deafening that today’s TVs dont have that CRT whine. Anyone with a CRT in their house will inevitably bring me down to memory lane of the 1990s when they turn on their TV.

My cousins have to turn off their antidog/anticat system in their backyard when I come over cause it gives me a headache.
