Age 65, level 11,500
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.
31. According to the webs, and my AKG K240 phones, I'm deaf above 15khz.
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
Im 61 and cant hear anything above 10K
13.97 Years old
I think this pole should have associated age with it. The results would have been more informative. At 65 I still hear into the 14Khz range, I know this from a true hearing test last year and generating tones through my system.
60 years old. took the above test and started
hearing sound at 50 hz and did not hear anything after 4100hz.
I have severe tinnitus caused by nerve damage from
60 radiation treatments to my neck and head.
I am 49 years old and lucky enough to hear from just above 20 to about 16. I actually took this test a little while back and was upset I couldn't hear to 20. After reading some of these answers I consider myself lucky. It does make me wonder how much and how rapidly it might drop off as I continue getting better. I mean older. I just had one of my younger friends take this test with me at the volume control. It was kinda funny, he was complaining as I was turning it up past 16 khz to try and hear something. What do you mean turn it down? I don't hear anything.
When I test my hearing I use an AR-3a with a replacement HiVi tweeter.
Since I first posted this thread I am happy to say that my response hasn't gotten noticeably worse.
My dog ( in the Avatar pic ) leaves and won't come near me for a while when I crank up the signal generator above 10K!
