Xiao Lung Wang of China just set a new Guinness record for the “highest vocal note by a male,” when he hit an E in the 8th octave, with an audio frequency of 5,243 hertz. It was recorded on the Chinese television show Happy Camp where the piercing sound was measured using professional sound equipment and acknowledged as a new record by a certified Guinness judge.
According to Oddity Central:
The previous record had been set by singer and vocal coach Adam Lopez, who in 2008 managed to produce a D8 measured at 4,435 hertz, or three semitones above the highest note on a standard grand piano. Wang’s E8 sound was reportedly a half step higher than that of the Australian singer’s.
