I feel like I hear it, but I imagine that if I wasn't aware it was there I would either get irritated for what I thought was no reason or ignore it.

Have you ever felt like you heard something?  I hate that feeling.

Do you hear the voices too?!!!

I'm curious as to how a tank would evolve. Would it climb out of the primordial ooze wiggling it's track-nubs, feeding on smaller jeeps before crawling onto the shore having evolved proper treds?

Weird, usually I feel the voices. 
I guess they don't want to shout over the tinnitus - more's the pity.

I could not hear it, I guess I'm old now.
Now you can loiter around stores with impunity.

Oh god, the mosquito noise youth deterrents. You'd turn a corner and then aurally slapped by this hot butterknife that's trying to saw its way between your ears. I bumped into those a few times at the entrance to underground car parking points in Japan and have definitely heard it used at a few storefronts stateside. It's physically nauseating.

I've given up monitors for the whine, I've had televisions that used to have the whine, my old side piece desktop/datastorage/server tower would whine if it was switched off but plugged in, had devices emit it while charging. Awful, awful, awful, awful.

I've heard the mosquito noise in stores, from computers, and other stuff before and it never really bothered me

I'm fairly certain I've heard mosquito noises in a few shop entrances, but there was just so much other noise that it went from "ow ouch owie" to "huh?". My brain's internal noise reduction filtered out the tone. I've noticed this phenomenon in less-annoying contexts. I listen to music while I cycle (terrible idea, I know), and I've noticed that it sounds worse; I lose the bass in music due to the noise. Once I stop, and start listening in relative silence, I can hear the bass again.

I wonder if that's been researched, something like "Human Frequency Response in High-Noise Environments" or "Noise and Perceptual Sound Quality". Surprisingly, no articles or similar show up, at least on Google.
