The range of frequencies within human hearing, which is approximately 20Hz at the low end to a high of 20,000Hz. However, pundits claim that some people can hear higher frequencies.

Tape cassette players record sound waves as magnetic waves. In the days of the phonograph record, sound waves were literally "carved" into the plastic platters.
