Does anyone notice how a lot of electronic appliances, whether it be a microwave, oven, or a wristwatch, have their beeps in the B note? I just now realized this, and I'm interewted in this. What are the implications of electronics beeping in B? Why is it like this, is it because it sounds very neutral, or at least appeasing? In any other note, it kinda sounds odd, and honestly after listening beeps in different pitches, B is the only one that sounds right for electronics to use.

    How, exactly, did you determine this?

      Because I was using my microwave for a pizza, and then my watch beeped at the same time for a timer, and then i heard my microwave beep when it was done heating it up, and I got curious. Even the windows sticky key is in B.

      They beep in A you retard

      The reason is simple. B = 1000 Hz
      1024 is a commonly used multiple of 8. basically programmers are lazy and just put the note as 1024 Hz so basically B.
      >t. lazy firmware programmer

      This is the correct answer.

    In the US, the power grid operates at a frequency of 60hz. I imagine older appliances have buzzers and beepers that take advantage of this, and use various rectification tricks to get harmonics of 60hz. If you look at this chart you can see that this falls close to 'B'.
    The newer devices probably just continue this trend. I'm just guessing here, that's the best I've got.

    wristwatches use a 32768 Hz crystal clock
    32768 / 16 = 2048
    B6 is 1976
    so it's not quite B but it's close

    microwaves and other plugin electronics are probably emitting a multiple of 60Hz since that's the mains frequency

    it's probably not exactly the same as the wristwatch

          Probably but I've never had any problems whatsoever. I guess I'll buy a new PC when I start listening to 20000Hz all night instead of music.
          What's more important can those frequencies damage earphones ? Like crack the membrane, I don't detect anything now but I wonder

    60Hz A/C phase is between B and Bb, that's probably what you're hearing

      It is the 2Khz tone.
      Or something similar.
      It is just easy to repoduce with simple electronics electronics and became a standard. For other reasons as well.

      Thanks, now I can sleep in peace!
