nice, the article that I got it from said that if you were under 18 you can hear it, but a friend told me it was under 30

It depends on the person.

my ears are now ringing from that.
And I run a very loud machine and have a hard time hearing people taliking sometimes.
Short and sweet. :)

maybe my computer has bad sounding... because i really think my hearing is alright, and i DID put it on full volume, and it was softer than my phone vibrating on a table
Then again, maybe not...

Not being able to hear it just means that you can't hear that frequency, not that you have bad hearing.  Hearing is measured by frequency range as well as the sound level reaching the ear (that's what decibels are), so frequency range isn't all that constitutes "good hearing"  (plus, even if frequency range was all that mattered, this ring tone says nothing about the lower frequency limit).  It's completely natural for the human ear's sensitivity to high frequencies to decrease; that's why this particular ring tone is most easily heard by children and not adults.

lol at lower volume it sounds like when an old TV is turned on
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF
