Annoy 90% Of Under 20 Year Olds

Annoy 90% Of Under 20 Year Olds, with high frequency* noise.

Step 1:
Download the attached sound.

Step 2 : Burn a c.d. with the sound on it, or put it on a device.

Step 3: play it!

*speeling

you all said it didnt work because it was mp3, so i have made a .wav version with blips of silence so they're not able to ignore the sound, also, dont play it to loud or it goes funny (or atleast it does with my speakers)
-warning! wav file is 10.1mb but it is also 1:15 min long-

I'm really sick of people asking me how to download this sound, please read the other comments it has already been answered

to make the .wav file playable do this

1.open notepad 2.drag the .tmp file into notepad3.click save as4. click the save as type box, and change it to "all files" 5.name it "noise.wav"  without quotes, remember to type .wav it is important6.do as you wish

wooo happy one years of sound induced pain(in 5 days time(26/07/07)).

dude don't these kind of sounds cuase hearing damage
WHAT!?
what?
this type of sound can cuase severe hearing imparments if it is active near you for a few hours but for a prank say 10 min it does no harm
I don't think you got the irony of my post. I was joking...hearing loss...."what?"..get it?
oh lol

I tried to record this on my cell phone just using the recording button thing and even with the volume tuned all the way up and phone right against speakers, the phone couldnt hear/record the noise but it heard the click of my mouse in background so I know it was working.
that phone must be part of the 10% percent
with cell phones - Some mobile telephonic devies have microphones that arent that good at picking up high frequency sounds such as this one. I suggest just downloading it and then using USB wires to transfer it. :)
you probably have a very old phone
its not that old its a Verizon wireless v3 Razr
cell phones cant hear other recordings or high pitched noises, i've tried it. it stinks.
wow dude it was a joke? didnt u get it? its and OLD phone so it couldnt Hear the high frequency.... lol
OHH lol.
I just downloaded it to my desktop the sent it to my mobile via bluetooth.
i dont have bluetooth on my lap top : (
there's always mobile17.com Make an account upload the content and they will send it to your phone and wah lah! FREE!!

i done it in school today :D YAY! i found my new tourture weapon because in english the teacher is 54 and i continously play it BUT i put in seperate earphones in soci dont hear it as much and everyone is shouting will someone try and get rid of that f***ing noise its giving me a headache so i put it louder and louderand then half the class got sent to the headmaster for going insane saying they could hear the noise so i asked the teacher could i go down to the toilets which are coincidecently is just next door to the headmasters office and i plantd my phone where there was a small brick missing and hid it in there and played FULL BLAST and then they all got suspended X-D i couldnt stop laughing
hey, do u think this would work on my neighbors annoying dogs that won't stop barking....?
as a matter of fact yes dogs can hear higher frequancies then us so download the noise and download some wave editor thing and put the sound on he editor and higher the frequancy so you cannot hear it but younger people can and get it on your phone and play it full blast and put it on a loop and the next morning you will see a dog nawing your neighbours balls off lol it should work i do it to the kids in school im suspended now because they found out it was me but it was funny for the time being my careworker neva een shouted or grounded me all she said was dont do it again :) :)
could it potentially be made to make their heads explode
LOL Damn ownage.
so that was you lol good one johns gunna be peeved of at you though if he finds out dont worry im not grassing :)
please note im from england and where it says 1:34am it should be 10:34 pm ;)

 Ok, these are very crappy downloads. No offence, but I tried these, and they're not annoying. Everyone can hear them. Here is the best ones I found and they turned out to be pretty promising. I turned one on, and my eyes immediately started to water and i had a headache from showing like 3 people who couldn't hear it at all. So go to  www.teenbuzz.org/  and download the 21 or 22 kHz  .WAV  format for best effect. By the way, like NobodyInParticular said,  .MP3 sucks, so don't get it.
First of all, 15kHz is not a high enough pitch to exclude many older listeners. However, it may already be too high for young people who frequently listen to loud music with earphones.

Secondly, the clicks in the WAV file have not been rounded off at all, so those are clearly audible to anyone.

But the main problem with doing this on a computer is that all but the best sound cards and speakers will not reproduce it correctly. Instead, their attempt at reproducing the sound will make clearly-audible subharmonics. Saving this as an MP3 just makes the problem worse, as the MP3 format is designed to omit information that most people cannot hear. So you probably need a dedicated oscillator circuit and a piezo element tuned to somewhere around the desired frequency.
my dad is 35 and can easily hear it. sorry to bust your bubble. If you want to annoy people in school, take tech classes, especially electronics. if you ever experiment with sound you just put in about a 500 ohm less resistor than you are supposed too. if people can still hear that, experiment.
۩
Is that a birdhouse?
I have no clue.
you didnt really burst their bubble its jes dat most peeps over 20 cnt hear it cuz of bd hearing
It's not really bad hearing, just minor deteioration of the hair cells in the cochlea due to age. They still hear very well, just not a such a high (and useless) frequency.
enerarevir5 years ago
What is it? I'm 52 and can hear it all quite clearly en at 2% volume on my speakers. I find it hard to believe that most people my age, or even younger can't hear that.

Its funny, I hear this sound almost 90% of the time anyway, Im used to it i guess.
You may have a hearing disorder called Tinitus, which causes a buzzing in the ear canals. Go to a Doctor and get it checked out.
pedrotome6 years ago
Well, I guess I'm one of the 10% of the Under-20-year-olds, since it doesn't annoy me. At all. It's a very high-pitched sound, but it ain't annoying. :x Well, I guess if a friend tries to prank the class, I wont start yelling and get suspended. :D OR I could play it FULL FRIGGIN BLAST and not get affected. :D

van886 years ago
Hahah, that's great... but I can't hear it :)
I think some solid Jethro played on a Denon or Onkyo receiver at a crazy high volume will do the trick too!
Yah, you don't even need notepad or 3GP converter. All I did was used firefox to download it to desktop, right click, nename to noise.wav, and it worked fine ( Windows XP OS btw...if that helps any :P).
*EDIT* rename, not nename, sorry :D. And this is awesome, I can finally get the lil punk next door back for waking me up all the time, by burning this onto a CD-R continuously and just set my stereo out full blast. Wait until he gets a load of 700 MB of pure hell...lmao. :D
finlaychief6 years ago
i got to find sum way 2 get my phone to play as it can not playthis frequency very audibly maybe if i amplifi it i could play during school asembly muhahaha
LoL.... We had a test today and I finished faster than anyone else, when I was done,I let this ring very loudly,the teacher had no idea what was going on,and my classmates which I disliked very much, kept getting irritated by the noise, they also had no idea where the sound was coming from. Now I'm waiting for the test grades,I want to know how the others did. :~D
Just got back the results, and I got 100! :) Unfortunately one person still got a 90 and two others got an 80. :( However, the rest got 70s and 60s !! I also got the highest grade in the class! When the teacher asked why so much people did so badly,they(my classmates) said that they could not concentrate because of a sound they heard that gave them headaches. The teacher simply said "nonsense" and "excuses" because a few students still managed to pass and that she does not recall of hearing anything! Muhahahaha!!! :D
nice i got to try that to bad my cellphone speaker can't play it
you tricky ass sly dog
I love it!
your mean, lol
MrCoffee6 years ago
Grado SR80 headphones really bring out the best of this sound. And by best, I mean even after I turned it off I swear I can still hear it. Everybody who can hear this should now appreciate what I have to listen to when a room gets really quiet (tinnitus).

Saga bluelion8 years ago
I'm 29 and can hear it as clear as day. I admit, thought, that while downloading I was nervous in anticipation that I may soon be reminded of the fact that I am no longer a spring chicken. And aside from being audible, the sound makes my ears itch and feels as if it were shaking loose the ear wax from my inner ear canal.
saites2001 Saga8 years ago
I saw this on the edge of I-hacked a couple of months ago, and it said it's around 40+ (and for some people, 50+) before you start losing your ability to hear high pitched sounds like this.

musicman3867 years ago
hey i am under twenty and i can hear it... but it doesn't annoy me that much. the breaks in the sound are like rest stops. i guess my brain just uses that time to regain my human sanity and prepare for the next round.
this wud be bril if it wasn't only me in my house that cud hear it
dude i was playing over and over and i got a mad headach. this is cool!
Daykun7 years ago
I must be one of the 10%, I can hear the sound perfectly but it doesn't annoy me at all. I guess it should be even higher... I might try that later on... Also, I guess I will make one that is so high that it annoys dogs (like, a dogwhistle on my mobile...) I hope it will work (possibly my phone-speaker doesn't have that frequency-range...)
HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA no one will beable to live in this house anymore (if of course they can hear the sound of doooooooom moo ha ha) yes i am part cow
omg so annoying!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!i think ill play it to my sis lol
killboy14737 years ago
help me download it someone please
you can download 3gp video converter from google, or ares, or limewire. etc. but remember to convert it to .WAV
Jim_Knowles7 years ago
I just downloaded this file. I had to change the extension from .TMP to .WAV then it worked. At first I thought "This ain't so bad." then after maybe five seconds, it got annoying, then rapidly it got worse. I shut it down after a total playing time of maybe ten seconds, and five minutes later i still feel nauseous and have a headache. I thought the idea was us over thirty folks couldn't hear this at all. I'm 57 and I heard it a lot better than I wanted to!!!
How do u change it from tmp to wav
you have to download 3gp video converter, then drag the file in the converter and convert it to .WAV then it will work.

FlyerDie7 years ago
hey..i have 31yrs and still listen that "electric" noise!!! sounds like a TV without signal...
not all people are the same, I did try with a different audio file at 17KHz and while I could listen it my friend couldn't ( I and my friend are 18years old). Usually but not ever older people have less hearing sensitivity
True, but i know of one gal here in her 40s whose hearing is getting better and it's actually a bother to her as every tiny sound grates on her nerves. Also: have people listen as you play a piano keyboard up the scales, and some people can't hear the higher notes at all, or they sound much quieter as they can't hear them as well. These are not candidates for a job as a piano tuner obviously.
eh. the clicking in the wav really takes away from the annoyance.
FreakCitySF7 years ago
I found plenty of people over 20 that could hear it, but very cool though. Much older folks over 50 couldnt hear it. Can you make one to sell about the size of a film canister? Ill pre pay :)

Wow, ten megabytes? That'll take a long time for this connection. And it's only a little over a minute long? What else do you have on there? A few programs?
did you see the file ending???? .WAV !!! 1 minute ~ 10 MB that was the generation BEFORE mp3

I created my own and have been listening to it for several minutes. I feel the need to either take some Excedrin or kill someone.

Make it stereo, make two frequencies about 60 cycles apart and let the two beat against each other. This really drives you nuts. Have fun.
i got it up to 20000Hz and i can still hear it when its on, but it doesnt really bother me.

double837 years ago
Hey, I'm 23 and can still hear it. It's the same noise a t.v. makes when just the t.v. is on but not the cable box (i.e. no signal/picture). Also, I have spent the better part of my life since I could drive listening to heavy bass (I had a 143 dB set up in a jeep). I mention that only because I was always told that listening to music at that level would damage my hearing... guess not. BTW a jet engine is about 140 dB.
I can't download the sound.
tgip7 years ago
Most people will be able to hear this sound, unless they were listening to music WAY too loud and damaged their eardrums. I'm 37 and hear it perfectly. And I belive that any one tone played for long enough will eventually annoy someone ;) give a 3-4 year-old a whistle and watch people around him/her. (p.s. - I happen to like rap! And i like it loud) I also remember reading somewhere that women can hear higher pitches than men (on average).
Pudge7 years ago
My dog and i can hear it! IT HURTS!!!
OMG! This totally works. I downloaded it and started playing it, couldn't hear it so I turned up the volume & the five kids in my house ( one 5yr,two 8yr,one 9yr & one 21yr olds) all started freaking out. They were screaming what is that noise? I was laughing so hard I almost fell off of the chair. I couldn't hear a thing! Thanks so much, now I have a weapon of my own. Lol!!

aiden120000 (author)  joshuajahr7 years ago

sorry to say that, but really why do you post this form of evil? i kinda thought you were old cus well... you posted this...
you wont be able to do it. as you get older, the range of your hearing gets smaller, so the only things i can hear (being older than you) are the things you can hear, and it just goes downhill for you from there. on the other hand, rap bugs most old people, so id stick to that.
JMarshall7 years ago
When i was a kid my father was a police officer, he was the SWAT trainer for the station and as such had access to a whole bunch of nasty things, one day to play a joke on me he installed devices in the electrical outlet in my room. These devices were small sound generators that were well made, and produced a sound not unlike this one. I found it after about an hour of looking, and uninstalled it. My father later told me there was a supplier that sold them, you could either get them designed to be hardwired or run off a 9v battery. I have been looking for the supplier for years and haven't found it, but now I may just make one myself...
look no futher if you know how to mod you can git one of those pest deturrents that make sound and slow down the playback speed
what a naughty dad. i bet he knew you would be looking and looking and looking. Dads are like that, us grandads are as well. Wild toothless cackle.

I can hear it just fine, but it doesn't annoy me, probably because I live in a house with 10+ computers running 24/7 generating the same sound. A very cool idea though, wish I had thought of it was I was in highschool.
Wow! 10+ computers! I wish I had that many! TGT
Well, they're not all mine, I personally own 3 of them, 2 desktops, 1 server, then I also have my work computer, belongs to the business, but I take care of it. The others are room mates computers and other work computers. It's not bad having that many computers...except when you're the only one who knows how to service them...

I just played the sound for a 60 year old, 52yo, my 11yo son and me (37yo) and we ALL heard it. Very annoying too. A friend tried this on a group of adults at a party I was at once. Everyone heard it. I've never seen it actually work. Meaning kids hear it but over 30yo people don't. Oh well
yeah i have found this before and it has worked before - but this sound isn't high enough. it is supposed to be much higher like a mosquito type sound. don't worry, if you really want it to work, then search for the mosquito noise.
or you could just download "Audacity" and mess with the pitch yourself
aiden120000 (author)  McNostril7 years ago
go genarate>frequency>1500Hz/15kHz
when you said to go on to audacity and generate the tone 1500Hz/15Hz, do you mean both at the same time, or to try either one?

HubmaN7 years ago
I could hear it as well as anyone else I know... I think that's because of the audio compression of MP3 files. They cut off anything we can't hear (we including adults too), like really high and really low sounds. So you end up with something that sounds like the original thing, but similar to a photograph of a live event-you can't really observe anything special in it.

how do you download it?
ow!
I ordered an electronic device years ago out of a catalog that emits a high pitch noise just like this, it was called the "sonic nauseator" but it was confiscated at school. someone needs to instructablize one of those, or tell me where I can buy one again.

I find it very ironic you have spelled "frequency" correctly, then put an asterisk next to it, accompanied by a matching asterisk at the bottom next to the misspelled word "speeling," in an attempt to indicate you are unsure of the spelling. I also find it amazing that in nearly 8 months you haven't had access to a dictionary or spell checker.
aiden120000 (author)  Andrew5467 years ago

yeah, just about. And even after having it pointed out, you haven't fixed it, which is more ironic.

The Mosquito operates at 17.8 KHz, which is notably higher than the MP3 embedded in this page.
_soapy_7 years ago
Odds are, that after 10 seconds, it stepped up to the next higher frequency, and your ears couldn't hear it any more. I can't hear it beyond 20 seconds, but my other half can. Regarding frequency response, I checked, and the monitor speakers I have can cope, as can the stereo, as can a cheap set of headphones. You want to determine the lowest frequency at which you can still hear it, then step up by 500Hz for your device, as it will be more likely to have an effect on the chavs without affecting you. Be careful of your dog/cat/hamster, though, as they hear high pitched sounds far better than we do, and at 130dB it is going to drive them nuts! I have purchased an air cannon. It is painfully loud, and I shall work out how to mod it for the effect we want.
I have done a similar thing...I am 14 and this sound is very similar to the whine that bad CRT televisions make. I created my annoying sound with a function generator. 10+ kHz works really well. The higher you go, the lower the age group it will affect (often.)
aiden120000 (author) 7 years ago
i'd like to hear about this anti chav bomb. im trying to do my best to avoid chavs now, bevause on wednesday the 29 of nov a chav punched me in the face and broke 2 teeth. on my speakers the mosquito. wav sound wouldnt work at around 10 seconds, probably to do with my speakers though
_soapy_7 years ago
Right, it's a 15011Hz signal. Fourier transform doesn't show much, a few traces at lower frequencies, but probably because it is a back conversion from mp3. Attached is a sample that steps from 15kHz up to 20kHz, in 1k steps. You will here a beat frequency where they swap over, both in wav and mp3. If you want the .aup file, that's there too, and you can play with that in audacity. If you want a mindf, you could cross over the stereo channels, etc. too, as it is completely non-directional. My next project is going to be a sonic air bomb that deafens chavs. It would be the ultimate anti-mugging device. I reckon an air horn and a dog whistle might just do it.
_soapy_7 years ago
I think a lot of this will be to do with the limits of the MP3 format, as well as the state of the speakers you are using. I can hear it fine through my monitor speakers, and through headphones, and, rather more effectively, through my Denon amp and stereo speakers. (OowW! I can still hear it) Note that I am 30+, and have hearing loss at high frequencies due to gunfire over the years. So something is wrong with this. I'm going to stick it in Audacity and see what I can work out.
Ouch. I listened to it twice and 1 minute later my head started to really hurt, im gonna try and get it on a cd or mp3.

Yup, if my GF hears it for more than half a minute or so, she starts feeling naseous. I wonder if that's a documented effect.

howiestap7 years ago
The real deal the Mosquito runs at a higher frequency than the ringtone so fewer oldies hear it. The tone is modulated (turns on and off) which makes it more annoying. Playing HF through your HiFi can cook your speakers. You have been warned. Howard Inventor of the Mosquito

Just pointing out. This has very little practical use on a cell phone. Sure your teacher might not be able to hear it. But when everyone in the class starts saying

The teacher will suspect something.
There still are many things you can do with this though.

Yeah this sound was not pure, its just a way to show everyone what's the noise. I tried to listen to a 20khz pure wave, without hearing anything (well I heard something, but not that annoying sound) (and my speaker was full blast). I'm 25 years old. I tried at 17.5khz and I was able to hard the sound without problem, and clearily.

OMFG that is exceedingly irritating. It drills right in to my head and I'm nearly 35. But there again, the sound of a monitor on Standby also irritates me, so I guess I'm tuned in to that frequency - perhaps a little too acutely.

I've always known when a TV is on rooms away. It get's kind of annoying. The same with low frequencies. We have this pedastal fan we use in the living room, which is directly above my room, and I hear this rumbling noise whenever it's on. My mother has no idea what I'm talking about. It's actually prompted me to go and turn it off 20 minutes after I went to bed. Stupid fan.

I tryed this at my office and it was a success. Although I do beleive it is completely due to lack of protection. It depends what type of environments the subject has been influenced too. If you had awarness of this when you where, lets say, twenty you could probably preserve your hearing so you can jam on high frequncies.

I hear a similar high pitched squeel when a tv is on. Apparently it's because the vertical sync signal in tv's (cathode ray tube, not LCD) is approximately that frequency.

strobe8 years ago
I'm n19, and I can only hear this in one ear. However, this makes me think -- there's this security alarm in one of the buildings where I have class -- and people keep tripping it, and then leaving it on. It's a very high pitch (though not so high as this), and some people look at me like I'm absolutely crazy when I curse, and run down the hall to turn it off (technically, it's in an adjoined building). Maybe some people (including the building maintenance staff, whom I had assumed were just negligent) can't hear it.
sounds plasible.... but it really sounds like th mfr did a bad job in selecting what frequency the alarm should be.... higher pitched sounds don't require much volume to be annoying (so turning up your speakers really does not do anything)... but too high and its outside of the audible range :/
Dan Lockton8 years ago
As an mp3 (compressed) the higher frequencies will be attenuated quite a lot. Try some of the wave files (15 kHz, 17.5 kHz, 20 kHz) linked here - http://architectures.danlockton.co.uk/?p=72 - uncompressed and pure.

There's a shopping centre near me which uses something at about 18-19 kHz in front of a jewellers, presumably to deter kids from hanging around - not sure if it's the Mosquitp device or not, as they've hidden it.

I'm 13 and I can't hear your 17.5 and 20kHz sounds. All I hear is a high pitched beep sound when it starts to play. That's probably the speakers turning on.

Stormed8 years ago
I've researched this before and while for a lot of people it will work, a lot of other people might have trouble. To REALLY see how well this works, use the best speaker you can find because if you use a cheaper speaker, it might not be able to fully recreate the given frequency. Make sure your speakers can handle it. I've also seen people making their own sound using Audacity(free audio tool) and setting the frequency of the rendered sound, somewhere around 18000.
pluish8 years ago
yess, i`m 14 and one of the 10 % who skipped the odds, :D
While the theory is based on the fact that aging naturally reduces the ability to hear high frequencies, it fails to take into account the environment in which all our hearing takes place. In practical terms, most hearing loss is not due to the effect of aging, which only takes effect past age 55 or so, but on constant exposure to very loud sounds. You're more likely to find younger people listening to iPods, cellphone headsets, car stereos, DJs, concerts and all other sorts of high decibel sound systems. I wouldn't be surprised that most of the under 30's couldn't hear it.

Hungry_Myst8 years ago
I think the average age where people stop being able to hear this is around 25 (can't remember where I got that number tough). I played something like this for my parents and nether could hear it. I also tried playing it in a room full of friends and relatives (it was at my dad's birthday) and the only one who could hear it (besides me) was my cousin (who's in her 20's, but I'm not sure of her exact age). It was sort of funny, she started getting annoyed and told me to stop it (I was using a laptop, so she knew it was me right away), and everyone else got confused as to what she was talking about. Eventually they got me to play it a few times so they could try to hear it.
