You know, the 17 kHz one that's supposed to be inaudible to adults.

I hear it just fine.

I wish hearing that, although it is pretty painfull to hear, was a sign that my hearing has not been damaged at all, but somehow I doubt that....maybe its just the fact that I like most people these days, have been around HF switching power supplies, like those found in CRT computer monitors that used to at least, often times put out a noise, around that frequency that would drive people nuts.....I know in 2003 there was one in the PennState Harrisburg Computer Science Sun Lab that was really loud....

I hear it in both ears just fine. I thought > 20 kHz was inaudible to most people?

Oh, btw, some guys at work and I did an experiment yesterday with this (and replicating various other frequencies around 17kHz) and found out most computers end up with alot of under-tones (internal speaker resonances) at frequencies far below 17kHz when you try to play this. For example, on a mac powerbook, we go good results <16kHz, but over 16kHz, the primary frequency we got out was more like 11-12kHz...so just because you are hearing it, doesn't mean you are hearing the correct tone

oh, and the experiment was really fun, apparently 14.4kHz was nice and unpleasant to my two 21yr old interns...I didn't mind it at all

I was playing jokes on the old guys at work. Some could hear it and some couldn't. Maybe Boston is right - they are hearing something but it may or may not be the correct tone.

Just checked out my main machine at work, Harmon Kardon 2+sub system can do it, so I would say most non-laptop speakers will work well...I would just watch out for little laptop speakers (odd, the little ones, which you would think could more easily reproduce high frequencies are worse--probably due to the fact they tweak the designs to get lower mechanical resonances to improve midrange and "bass" on little speakers)
