Ring Tone that Adults Can’t Hear – Free Download

My college Calculus I class is a killer! I mean, it is tearing me apart, eating me alive! We were taking our midterm exam last week and it was really difficult. After I was finished with my test and left the classroom, I checked the messages on my cell phone. As I pressed “TALK,” I thought, “Crap! I left my ringer on again!” Imagine what would have happened if somebody called me in the middle of my test. My professor is known for dismissing students with an audible cell phone during a test and giving them an “egg shaped grade.” He even warned us that on our first day! I can not afford a bad grade on my transcript!

The Mosquito is a ringtone that was inspired by the Teenager Repellent. Like here in the States, the United Kingdom is burdened with teenage loitering. Their answer, the Teenager Repellent, emits an annoying, cycling, high pitched, mosquito-like noise that only young people can hear. Usually, this cheap investment is enough to drive the delinquents away. Generally, the cutoff hearing age is 20 years.

The Mosquito generates sound from the same sonic frequencies and packages it in a nifty little ring tone. Since most – if not all – professors have well passed their early twenties, the mosquito is imperceptible to them.

So, set your ringers as loud as you can handle. Relax, your teachers won’t hear a single thing! 🙂

  8. DaCheetah Says:

    I’m 24 and can hear it fine.
    I also noticed that on my laptop when the volume was about about 25% there was some kind if distortion that made a much lower pitched tone that anyone that isn’t deaf could hear. (With headphones or external amp/speaker system this lower pitched noise wasn’t there)

  9. blogger Says:

    consider yourself lucky, dacheetah! my friend who is 19 cannot hear it. 🙂 that distortion you were describing is very characteristic of internal speakers commonly found in laptops. try testing it on external speakers and with people in your peer group.
