    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.
