    Age 59, have a slight drop at 4k, can't hear above about 13,600 cps. I'm ok with that, but I watch out for high volume, so hopefully I stay there for a good long while.

    43, through a pair of Grado SR-80's and using the test here:


    ...I was able to hear the whole spectrum from 20 to 20k. Though everything above 17k or so was like an "outer space" sound to me.
    Don't know if there were any limitations on the computer hardware or how good the above test really is.

    Im 61. I can hear up to mid 16k range. After that my hearing rolls off pretty quick. This is from an annual complete physicals I get through the VA Hospital. My last test was Jan. 2017. I missed this years apt and need to reschedule. Not bad though I think, for all the concerts I been to, down range in a tank battalion while watching the tanks fire standing not 50' away. Steel working for most of my life and never used hearing protection. My doctor cant believe how good my hearing is considering my age and the extreme loud music! Ill take it as everything else is going to hell at least I can hear!!

    64 and 6 months ago hearing was tested and okay to 16kHz. My wife thinks I'm deaf but I have selective hearing, which keeps me sane after 44 years of marriage.

    Me, too. Some TVs and cheap monitors were very loud and annoying.

    I feel like I'm one of the youngest on this forum. I'm 17 and I can hear up to 19,500 Hertz. This hobby is gonna destroy my hearing by the time I'm 40.

    At low volume about 13khz. I boosted the volume to approx 75% to get to 16khz. 57 y/o. A few trusted merchants of high end gear say there is no info above 10k, fwiw.

    I've suffered Tinnitus since I was about 8 Y/O but, strangely have had excellent hearing passing DOT physicals with upper marks, even hearing things either others don't notice as much or not at all.
    No, the voices in my head are different. Nowadays the ring is louder and for some reason other noises that would bother most really annoy me more.
    But, when listening to music or even TV the noise seems to almost drop away, still don't know what dB I hear at though.

    My iPad is no good for online tests..... I would think that a great sound card would be necessary !

    Never had problems with my hearing
