Adding to its successful line of DoCoMo and Softbank ringtones that are only audible to your cat or dog, Dwango recently unveiled one that you’ll definitely be able to hear. Unlike the super-high-frequency waves of the pet-focused rings, which measure in the neighborhood of 19,000Hz, the new downloadable track is down around 6,000Hz — and can be heard by humans at a distance of a few football fields. Perfect for when you just can’t miss that call.
Dwango also makes the world’s longest ringtone (61 minutes, 40 seconds) and is now going for another record for the shortest (0.9 seconds).
All of these ringtones are available by pointing your cell phone’s browser to http://dwango.jp and subscribing to the service for 315 yen per month. (Metropolis)© Japan Today
