So long, and thanks for all the fish...

Interesting. For me, 22 is the most apparent of the 2. 21 is a more even a tone, whereas 22 sounds akin to a ref's whistle due to the vibrato.

It's possible that my speakers aren't good enough - it could be that what I'm hearing isn't actually the tone but just my speakers.

16 in the most interesting one because I can't hear it, but I can feel it via headphones. The tone is so high, that it hurts after about 5 seconds.

Christ on a bike!

I can hear it up to 16khz, which is exactly what I should be hearing at my age.
