I think this is a crappy thing, because its will depend 110% on the speakers that peaple are using. I would be willing to bet that what a lot of people hear as their "highest" is actually the highest that their speakers can handle before it becomes inaudible.
X2

most PC speakers that are under say $60 or so, arnt good enuff to get the high end stuff...

some cheap speakers can but most cant. :(

Frequency response: 40Hz - 20kHz

it will be really hard to here it from 40K- it starts to get quite there

Z-640

35Hz - 20kHz

Of course, I should mention, the only reason I heard the really high ones is because I cranked the volume

even my logitech Z2300 THX only go from 35Hz - 20kHz

which is my point exactly as to why this is pointless. I bet my laptop speakers suck even more.
