51 years old. 13k and change
47 and am good to 14K. I can live with that.
Tested a few years back and was over 16k. Tested within the last month and am upper 14’s.! Aged 51 going on 12.
mid teens freq's, mid aged, wife filtered around 100 hz ...human voice is higher, I know.
45 years old, I peter out around 15ish.
54 and about 12k or so...
64 next month. I just tried a few online tests. On my trusty Sony MDR-V6 headphones I can barely hear 15K, with my right ear a little more sensitive. I'm kinda surprised it's that good.
65 and finally got hearing aids a few months back. I've had tinnitus from shooting for 40+ years and hearing loss since the early 1980s
Here's my audiogram. I'd suggest anyone over 50 get a real hearing test and not trust online ones; but you may not like your results.
Yes..I avoid restaurants with multiple t.v.'s and high ceilings.
I am 59....and can you speak up a bit louder??......
I used to work in recording studios and played in a band and although I've not had my hearing tested for a while, I know it is still pretty darn good. Even after playing in a band, it did not seem to damage my hearing.
I drop off at about 12k. However, my Mother is 87 and she can hear ants fart.
65 and I can't hear the alarm clock when it's on my right.
Not necessarily ... the upper harmonics "influence" the overall waveform and you may still be able to "hear" the effects of those upper frequencies even though you don't "hear" a straight sine wave tone above 14kHz.
55 and each ear has varying performance returns due to a 1989 upset girlfriend, disagreeing with we that we should break up - true story. Popped my left eardrum and I've learned to accommodate the delta between R & L.
What did she hit you with?
Hi Pod and Brian, Can my guys play with yours! Mine is the Beagle-Dachshund. Oh 72 and can't hear beyond 9k so I now Don't worry about burned out tweeters any longer
Ballylongford. Truly sorry about your boy! My heart goes out to you! Mark
From what I've read, inability to hear the upper frequencies may not effect the overall listening experience as drastically as some tend to believe...least that's what some sound specialists have found. Most of range of voice/instruments are well under the higher Hz, so not to become too alarmed.
Perhaps some with a background in sound can verify or qualify this?
Not to be on the contrary, as this may be true in part, but it's after 40 that you really know what to do with this "information".
