We got a lot of positive feedback on our Can You Hear Like a Teenager? article, and it inspired us to take it just a little bit further.
Check your hearing with a list of tones that go from 8Hz all the way up to 22,000Hz. It’s fairly common for people who are over 25 years of age to not be able to hear above 15kHz and also experience some level of hearing loss or hearing damage such as tinnitus. This online test will help you find out where your high frequency hearing cuts off.
Musicians have a much higher risk of hearing loss that most people do, and many of us don’t really wear proper hearing protection. Even just listening to an iPod for an extended period of time can permanently damage your hearing. We also gradually lose our high-frequency hearing as we age.
Take our online hearing test: listen to each of these tones and let us know where your hearing cuts out. Make sure to turn the volume down on your headphones or speakers and gradually turn them up to a safe level.
Importance of Hearing Protection
If you’re around loud music a lot like I am, or if you are experiencing some hearing loss, I highly recommend getting a pair of hearing protection earplugs.
The Etymotic earlplugs don’t muffle the sound like conventional earplugs – they basically give you the same frequency response as without, but with a bit lower volume. If I wear them out to a club, they also help me carry on a conversation without yelling. Etymotic earbuds are also great in that they isolate your ear so you don’t have to turn up the volume as much on your MP3 player (ambient noise is one of the biggest reasons we turn up the volume). I love mine.
I’m quite worried I’m 14 and I can’t hear above 14hz is that normal?
At age 63 I can hear 8, 10, 14, and 15 kHz but absolutely nothing at 12 or 16. My hearing was very good when I was young but I’ve obviously lost a lot of it by now.
Hi. I am 19 and have been listening to lots music on my phone over the last three years. Over the last two years I was also doing some work experience two days a week in an automotive workshop and was around lots of loud tools and machinery. I am using an android phone and skullcandy earbuds to do this test. I can just hear up to 17 kHz with my right ear and can only just hear 16 kHz with my left ear both on half volume. There is a history of tinnitus on my mum’s side of the family and I suspect I have it as well. It could be hereditary. I’m not sure if that’s a sign of me going deaf or not
31 years old, I worked in a machine shop with loud equipment for 3 years, and I have been installing residential, and commercial security systems for 5 the last years. I stand 2 – 3 ft away from sirens that range 85 DB to 155 DB for anywhere between 10 minutes, and 30 minutes. All with no ear protection I was able to hear up to 20 khz with volume at 30% all of them painful, everything after that i was not able to hear but my ears still hurt while they were playing (i think it’s due to my headphones, and speakers though. I have always been sensitive to high noises, but my problem is i have problems hearing low frequency. its been years since i have had an actual hearing test though, so i don’t think this test means much.
I’m 19, and I can hear almost all of the tones. I’m used to the high pitched tones associated with powering on old tv sets, but occasionally I hear the tones at random points of time in my day. I can legitimately hear all up to 18k, but feel the higher tones. The tones are almost painful no matter the volume level that is set.
This test isn’t always scientific.
I know I can hear above 15 K, but the test didn’t show anything for me on the 17 K file. No sound, I didn’t even feel a pulse, like also happens to me when I perceive high frequencies. I’m using my studio setup, but the MacPro’s bilt-in sound plugged into my mixer, which is how I always browse the web.
Low and behold, I loaded Sound Forge and began to generate tones, piping them through my MOTU Audio Express instead, plugged into the mixer as well. Both wearing Audio Technica headphones. I was fully prepared not to hear anything at 17000 HZ, but I got a very sharp, high frequency tone. 17500 was similar. It started to become something I felt more than heard once I hit 18000, at which point I stopped the test.
If you don’t hear the tones, try it on something else. Not everything can reproduce them properly.
I am 33 and am totally blind i had my hearing tested when i was about 8 they said i had good enough hereing that i could here things from about 3 blocks away! now with volume ab20 i can still here as well this is weird as i listen to music alot andi also use a screanreader to read the screan output sutch astext ad other things to me this means i have alot of stuff thing through my headphones sound whise at once! i amsupprized my hereing hasn’t decromented over time! i guess i am luck?
How can you type if you are totally blind?
Im 20 years old and i didnt hear anything up 15-16… My hearing must be terrible, but the funny thing is that i dont really experience anh problems with it. I hear loud and clear when someone is talking to me and everything else. I was doing the test on a tablet, with headphones plugged in. May that be the problem? Either that, or im going deaf.
I could hear all the ones on the left but none on the right. I do not know if this was same for a lot of people of not
I didn’t hear any of them. I am 48, I did a lot of babysitting in my time and kid watching. I think they busted my eardrums. Kids have this way with high pitch screaming when they don’t get their way. I already hear a ringing in my ears all day so it interferes with testing. It sounds like a high pitch frequency.
I am Raiford Clemons from Portsmouth VA. I am 56 yrs old and I can hear the sounds up to 21 khz. I probably could hear them all if I wasn’t hearing the 8 khz sound continuously 24 hours a day 7 days a week. Yep, that means if I sit still and its sort of quiet in the room, I can hear that sound. That means if I’m not tired when I go to bed, I wear head phones listening to some music in order to go to sleep. Its been so long since I’ve been hearing this sound that I can’t remember when it started, but it has been longer than 20 years. Sometimes when people say “I don’t hear nothing” I wonder how nice it would be not to hear nothing.
I can hear something at each frequency, but I am afraid, what I hear at the higher frequencies is rather some noise generated by my audio equipment, than the high frequency sound. How to distinguish this?
It may sound strange but even frequencies I can’t hear I can still “feel.”
Same here i am 34 (35 in a few months) i can clearly hear all the ones up to 20 (pretty good for someone who has been to my fair share of metal concerts) the others over 20 i can feel them, and the last one 22 actually hurts, it feels like a pop right in the center of my brain, when the sound clicks on and off.
I am 16 years old, male, and have played piano most of my life and started learning percussion not much longer than a year ago. (playing piano made me advance in percussion faster) I can sometimes hear higher or lower frequencies, but probably not much more than 15khz. I currently can only hear up to barely 12khz so I’m obviously not doing too well. I can think of a few things that have probably given me hearing loss besides music. I used to have the ability to hear most of these, but I no longer can. At least I already know sign language.
30 years old, being around fire arms, Various military class helicopters, death metal bands (Live and practice room), function one sound rigs doing shows (Spinning and promoting) basically have thrown a lot at le old ears.
Being religious about ear defense/protection since before teenage years (Thanks to military dad) and it shows because all frequency’s can be heard loud and clear even at lower levels.
This test was pure curiosity done because my friend lost his hearing in his right ear from firing his weapon so much in a short amount of time so i thought “hey the internet will have a test for my ears”.
Thanks who ever made this you made me feel great
I am a 52 year old female. I heard 8, 10 and 12 but none of the others!
I have suffered bad hearing since I was a child which got worse after a hemorrhage 17 years ago.
I had a hearing test done at Specsavers a couple of years ago, which determined that I was just ‘borderline’.
What I can’t understand is, if you need glasses, but can still ‘see’ you are given glasses that bring your vision to within acceptable ranges, but it appears that a hearing test is done under extremely false conditions ie silent!!!! this is not the real world at all, and does not help me one iota when i am trying to hear my college lecturer in a loud class, nor when i am listening to the TV or radio or loud speaker (and heaven help me if I can’t see their mouth shaping to give me a clue!!!
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE all audiologists, give the test under REAL circumstances!!!!!!!
We just want a chance to bring our hearing into line, to make our EAR SIGHT better if you will?????
27 years old, working background in industrial workspaces with a lot of noise, most of the time with hearing protection but a lot without too.
I can hear everything loud an clear upto 19khz, 20khz is a bit tougher but weirdly 21khz and 22khz are a bit easier (I had to turn up the volume, I skipped the first second to avoid the sound at start and had my girlfriend start the play with fake clicks but I still got them right every time).
I found this somewhat interesting, but with no actual knowledge I’d just guess that my ability to hear frequencies around that 20khz mark are slightly impaired, but a bit higher is somewhat intact still. I used to have very good ability to pick up high frequencies 10 years ago, to the point where my first employer wanted to double-check my hearing tests (which were done in a separate booth with headphones on so I couldn’t hear the buttons when they played or did not play the clips). I did better back then, obviously.
Used an slightly better than average consumer USB headset that goes up to 25khz, so just about enough for doing this test. Will probably redo this as I’m looking into investing a few hundred euros on headphones and an amp in the nearby future.
I couldn’t hear beyond the 14khz no matter how high the volume. I don’t understand m, n, s, f, unless I watch your lips. I did have hearing aides which made what I can hear too loud and ling ago abandoned them. I di hear wind for the first time with them which made me cry. I haven’t heard wind since, can’t hear a heart beat without amplification and rain has to be very loud on concrete or it looks silent. I can sing and play guitar and only if the vibration is off do I know if my tuning is wrong as I can’t hear it. I can’t sing without music and it needs to be loud. I have this hearing loss because my parents ignored my infections. When someone says can you hear this I get confused. Do I use thr sound or the vibration I asked the audiologist. Only hearing am I impaired. When you depend a lot on vibration, something as simple as can you hear this isn’t obvious.
For instance when I had a car I can’t hear the engine unless you gun it. But I can feel tue vibration. Never needed to look at the speedometer. Could tell by the vibration of the engine if going too fast. I can’t tell if my speech is clear either so I don’t talk much. But I must stress this above all else. Whstever hearing loss you have it doesn’t relate to smartness. Can’t begin to tell you how many think that if you don’t hear well you’re dumb and have had to correct people. One more thing that I’ve learned. Tell people you’re hearing impaired and how to communicate with you. Me? You look at me when you speak, don’t lower your voice or talk while you’re passing me. i can’t hear you. It’s not rudeness if I don’t respond, I can’t hear you. As obvious as it sounds, people aren’t mind readers. I have to tell people as much as it pains me to have a few still think that hearing loss means dimness. You don’t need to shout at hearing impaired and please remember that you don’t shout to deaf. If deaf or hearing impaired aren’t good enough speakers and they need to write, give them a pen and pad! Communication is hard enough without being treated like you have one brain cell because you don’t want to accomodate those who don’t hear good. We don’t intentionally want to frustrate you. I’m hearing impaired not stupid. You speak directly to me and speak normally I have no problem. I had to learn to explain things to people because I couldn’t fake it. My hearing is getting worse and I was tired of people thinking that if you can’t hear well you’re not too bright. It doesn’t offend me at all if someone says they can’t understand will you repeat. I will. If I get stared at I say I have a hearing problem that’s why my speech may not be as clear. Do you need me to repest and they say yes. It is amazing how many are understanding of being hearing impaired when you have no attitude about it. Took many years to stop having that attitude. People just didn’t know. Since I’ve always had a hearing problem that’s all I know. Technology helps if you can afford it, but you’ll always have a hearing problem. It’s taught me to listen better with what I have and I’ve learned to pay attention to what’s around and sneaking up on me doesn’t work. I can ‘feel’ your steps if you walk hard. Ha! Ha!
I’m 17 and i heard all of them which makes sense since i can hear pretty much anything….I must be part bat or something cause when i hear something and then say that i heard something my parents would say i’m crazy since of course they didn’t heard it.
p.s I play violin and having good hearing is a great advantage for one can hear the notes in the orchestra and one can stay in tune and etc. which i’m happy about
First round on laptop speakers at 30% volume I could hear 8-15kHz, 17kHz, & 18kHz. But 17 & 18 set off my tinnitus which I’ve had since childhood. (Very painful the times my ears would tell me, “this is the last you’ll ever hear so high. Enjoy iiiIIIIIIIIIIIT!”) Subsequent rounds, 17-22kHz just made the icy, hissing ringing worse, but were indistinguishable. I could hear 16kHz with headphones on at 30+.
I’m a 31 y.o. female who’s always been sensitive to & tried avoiding loud or high-pitched noise. Unfortunately, I grew up in a rambunctious family, who screams to speak & listens to everything on 11. Years ago my father installed squirrel repellers in the attic. They drove me crazy from inside my room & didn’t keep out animals. Now I can only hear the devices chirping when up in my parents’ attic.
Okay, just didn’t again – right before posting. Now that the construction outside has stopped, I can hear 17-22kHz at 90% volume with headphones. They sound like a fridge or an old TV running in another room; or a house phone ringing next door. At 100% volume speaker I can faintly hear 16-22kHz; 16 make me ears ache. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
I’m 35 years old, I work with music and I tried those sound on some cheap headphones made by Pioneer. Well to be honest if I turn the volume all the way up on my MacBook Pro trough this headphones Pioneer SE-CL711 I can hear all the way up clear on 15Khz. I do hear all of them but afer the 15Khz limit the pitch seems to decrease which is not normal as the sound goes up in frequency so I guess the headphones are playing a harmonic. They pretend to be 8Hz-22Khz and 105dB sensibility. They sound good but they are cheap headphones I doubt those figures. I don’t say I can hear over this 15Khz limit, I worked with music a lot in my life and I think maybe because of age plus hearing fatigue I may not be able to go after that, but clearly here is about a harmonic on the headphones. Then again at 17Khz it seems I hear it quite fair, then at 18Khz again is a fall and I hear a harmonic even downer than the first 16Khz who made the problem. So… Right now I’m in my car but when i go home I will fire up my main machine that’s using the following: Focusrite Scarlett 6i6 Mk II soundcard 20hz-20khz, my Tannoy Reveal 802, and also I must turn up the sub, a Temblor T10 from PreSonus which goes down under 20Hz with success but is rated at 20Hz. Since the Reveal 802 are rated at 43Khz I should be able to hear clear all the frequencies if my hearing is good. I trust those monitors, a lot of people are making music on them that’s why I bought them because I loved their sound. Also I will test with my most clear and unforgiven pair of headphones, the ATH-M50s from AudioTechnica. Well to be honest in bass i do go low as 12Hz even lower maybe and I do percieve the sound and not the vibration. Of course at 10Hz you can tell is a vibration but you don’t hear a shit. To be honest at 14Hz down the sub still sounds perfect to me. However those are tones generated with my DAW and some sine waves. I don’t have keys in Cubase to go up to 20Khz since they use a grand piano keyboard. Of course I can generate sounds using other techniques but I need monitoring to be sure is that specific frequency so samples are better. I tested once my hearing against some other pack of tests but I couldn’t trust them. Turned up the 20Hz sample was null and I got really scared, also the 30Hz… and I was like “hey I go deaf?” Then I touched my sub and he didn’t moved at all. When I generated my own 20Hz it was booming. Deep and thick and clear. So I cannot trust the samples in high register. I contacted the Admin and I told him about the samples problem and he said I’m stupid and I don’t hear well and things like that. What a douchebag. I do feel a decrease over 15khz in sound so I guess this is my threshold. I go home now to test it. I will write another review after.
I can hear all of them and the difference in tone
I am 61 years old and I spent a lot of time in the Military working around 300 thousand watt diesel powered field generators for 26 years. I spent lots of time in dance clubs (right in front of the speakers) all across Europe (it was a mission of mine to get to all clubs from the west coast to the border Russia and from Hamburg Germany to Sicily Italy) from the age of 21 – 38. I also had Koss Hv1 headphones which I used when at home and a Walkman (Sony’s iPod of the past) that I used when I was on the road.
From the Test, I could hear 8 – 12 at normal volume and 14 and 15 at higher volumes and nothing from the rest. I was using Marshall Monitor headphones plugged into a Denon 3802 Amp.
I am 51, male, with no history of hearing problems or significant exposure to loud noise.
Tried listening through speakers, then headphones, both of which supposedly reproduce close to 20KHz.
I can’t hear anything above the 10 KHz signal at my normal music listening volume. Can hear the 12KHz signal okay at much higher volume, and only just make out the 14KHz at almost maximum volume. Beyond that is complete silence to me.
I’m 42 and have tinnitus and it cuts off for me around 16 or 17khz (I can sense that it is there at 17khz, but don’t know if I am actually hearing it). I tested myself with an inexpensive laptop and an old set of earbuds from an iPod. I have had tinnitus since my 20’s but have practiced using hearing protection since then to prevent further hearing loss, so perhaps that is why my scores were not worse.
A word of warning: The sounds can be quite loud and so I advise people to start at no more than half volume so as to avoid damage.
I heard them all. My cat wickedy to. I was running around in circles trying to avoid the screech. It scared me I heard them so well. I was like GAHHHHHHH KILL THE NOISE! ITS BURNING MY POOR EARS!…. so ya my computer’s volume is even on 66. And those sounds are clear as day. So now im scared that a screech is gonna wake me up.
It’s odd, I could hear the 21 kHz, but I couldn’t hear the 19 kHz or the 20 kHz. Is there such a thing as selective frequency hearing? Or is it something else…?
i can’t even hear 10kHz on my 5-year-old Dell laptop. i want to insist i’m not losing my hearing (i’m 60+) but i concede i literally don’t know what i’m missing.
I’m 26 years old and I can hear them all except for 21kHz and 22kHz. Couldn’t even here those two full blast. Funny thing is that my left ear seems to be somewhat effected at the moment (pretty light though), like I’ve been to a concert; ringing sound. 9-15kHz were pretty piercing for myself, had to turn down the volume. Apparently animals can hear high frequency sounds, above 22kHz.
That was odd. At normal volume (34% on my Toshiba Satellite C55-B5300, what I use for Shirk/Shurk and other online music) I could hear as high as 19 kHz and “feel” all of them. That’s normal. I’ve gotten comparable results on other tests. However, what was weird was that when I turned up the volume (to 100%) I heard 20 kHz through to 22 kHz (again, as expected), but they all sounded the same (unexpected). Did my headphones reach their limit and just produce the highest tone that they could (using Sony Stereo Headphones MDR-ZX100)?
I am 47 years old.
When i first tried this sound test , i was only able to hear up to 12 kHz.
Then i listen to music for about two hours, with my Bose QuietComfort 15
Then i took the test again , result : i could hear up to 16 kHz
Could it be that my eardrums was warmed up to become more flexible , like when you warm up before doing flexible sport. ? ( Just a theory )
I’m 44 and I can hear all of these tones up through 22kHz. I have to turn my laptop volume all the way up, and I’m using Sony Professional MDR-7506 headphones. And yes, I can hear the tone, not just the click of the sound file and the interference.
I’ve always been protective of my hearing, though. I plug my ears when loud vehicles go by, and I don’t listen to loud music on headphones (even when I was a teen I didn’t). I had my hearing formally testing about 5 years ago and was told I can “hear bats”. I’m one of those people who can hear when a TV is on somewhere nearby, or a CRT monitor.
I am 29 years old, and I can clearly hear al lthe way up to 18khz, and and 19khz it’s definitely hearable, but not nearly as loud as 18khz.
20khz is “psuedo-noticable”, meaning that I’m not sure if I hear it or if I just *think* I do.
Alltho I’m positive that I would *feel* it on a higher volume!
I’m 19 and i can hear all of them. I don’t know why but I’ve been suffering from insomnia due to those sounds at night.
I’m 33 and heard them all , although I did have to try a few.times for a good wave entry into the ear – this happens because HF don’t spread as much like water (spherically outward so to speak) as low … if you haven’t heard the higher , try headphones or having your ear directly opposite from the speaker , but not close – turn it up so the wave forms properly , then try at incremental distances.
One thing I noticed and have heard about before , is people thinkng the lower tones they hear in the higher F tests , must be poor recordngs , that perceiving a lower tone = lower F … what actually happens , is that in the ear , the Fs picked normally , are picked up in the normal chambers/coil in the cochlear , but the higher ones are NOT , and sound lower , because we do not normally hear them , and they are not normally produced as a by product compared to everyday squaks and sqeals from natural materials (trees, water, air, etc) , sometimes they are in short bursts , or at places like electricity relay stations (a beautiful chorus of noises … aaaaah) , … where was I … we don’t normally process sound in these other canals / or we normally don’t pay attention to signals that deep into the middle bends of the cochlear , so our conscious process’ing’ of the signals , is misinterpreted somewhere inbetween, basically – not neccessarily here , not neccessarily there , but it doesn’t really matter exactly where – its that your brain isn’t used to recognising / processing the signals because they aren’t natually produced very often (particle storms, geomagnetic byproducts? whatever whackadoodle theories) – whereas dogs , not CAVE dwellers , need to be able to follow bats , etc , so theirs is more used to it , etc .
you would think bats being in caves should = more exposure to HF , but its not just quantity of exposure , its being able to perceive something useful from bats sonar (hearing some ‘soundscape’ from , but not being able to create the F)
we haven’t needed to -following grass trails , using calendars , symbolic markings , etc , have facilitated more reliable ways of scavenging.
and as for cats … ha! hunters dying of starvation in sytle as sleek killers , but dying nevertheless … arrrrrrrrroff!
so don’t stress , oh ye fat beats consumers and lovers … emphasise cave like and non cave like echoes/acoustics , as far as I’m concerned , ampitheatres are a waste of money 😀
I am 54 and have tinnitus, I can only hear up to 10 which is the exact noise I have in my ears all the time – interesting
protect your ears from loud noises guys
I have made 41.75 orbits around the sun. So I am 41 years and 9 months old.
I can hear the 18khz clearly through my Access Virus TI sound card, a Kenwood hi-fi amp, and Technics speakers.
19khz is very faint, which makes me think if my speakers were decent studio monitors I may possibly hear it.
I did try with my Sennheisser headphones, but they have degraded a lot in the last year or so, and seemed to lose reproduction at around 15khz, hence, hence why I tried the hi-fi.
I am rather happy to know that at my age I could clearly reference the 18khz sinewave.
First tried it on laptop and the best IT could do is 16 (so be careful with them they just cut some frequencies). Trying it on desktop with good 96/128 maudio card and nice Sennheiser headphones I could hear up to 21. What is strange is that I can hear 21 very clear (just not so loud as first ones) but 19 and 20 are very faint and I had to play them over couple times to make sure it is them and not the coolers noise in pc or other ambient noise. I’ve tested them with desktop default card and to my surprise result is the same, just a little bit more noisy sound.
I am 76 years old and have ridden motorcycles all my life most often without using earplugs as I have bikes with full screens these days. I can only hear just about to 10 KHz from my monitor speakers. I have problems understanding what people are saying in noisy places. In my younger days I could hear to 19Khz. I worked in underwater acoustics and could often hear transducers operating under water.
Interesting test and far better than one I came across on you tube…
My results were interesting as I’m 40 years old…
Using my laptop speakers (Toshiba L875D) and a set of external Altec Lansing VS4621 speakers I could hear almost every up tone up to 21 Khz (faintly) with one exception I couldn’t hear the 16 Khz at all on both not sure if that is due to an issue with my ears or with the audio file.
Using two different sets of in ear headphones (Don’t have my other earphones on hand) (Sony NC-100D) and a mid line V-Moda I could hear up to 15Khz beyond that nothing which I suspect is more a case of the limits of the earphone’s frequency response than anything else.
I could hear all of them, 21 and 22 I wasn’t so sure on, I had to play them back a few times because I wasn’t sure if it was just the fuzzy background noise I was hearing, or the actual tone- but I’ve done these before on ones of… Good quality… I’m 21, inching up on 22, still hear these as clearly as I always have, so I’m not losing my hearing yet- feels like it sometimes though, my right ear doesn’t hear as well as my left so sometimes when people are talking to me, especially when there’s a lot of background noise I turn my head to the right so my left ear faces them. Which I find a little weird because when I fire I fire left handed so all the noise is on my left ear, I’ve even had my left plug fall out on me while shooting, quite often actually when the butt nudges my ear or jaw it wiggles its way out, I’m not complaining though, I like my hearing.
I can hear 16 and below, and then 20-22. My left ear has hearing loss, as I had many ear infections in it. It only hears up until 14 and nothing else.
I am 14, and only heard 14 and below, I tried it on multiple computers with the same results. Weird… I could barely hear 15, but I could “feel” it more than I could “hear” it. I did this in my Physics class and everyone else could hear the tones around 19 and below.
I am 53 and I can hear 20 and below in my right ear and 12 and below in my left. I did not expect this because I am using a laptop. I found out I got better results when I used my earphones instead of the laptop speakers. I already know I have a hearing problem because of my time in the military and on t he flight line.
I’m 3 months short of 52, and I can hear 19khz on my laptop speakers – I have pretty good speakers in my laptop. When I was 15, I delivered newspapers, and found that one of my customers had a TV that made a noise I could hear before I got to his house. I couldn’t tell if it was on visually until I actually got to his front porch, where I could see him thru his picture window, watching TV. I found that in the winter time, I could hear his TV from about half a block away.
I worked with computers in my 20’s and 30’s, and would often catch my friends with their computers turned off, but their monitors still turned on – some of the older ones didn’t have a power on light – but I could hear the hum. Most of my friends were around my age, and they couldn’t hear it.
My 13 year old son took me to a site like this 6 months ago, and it had ages listed for the sound frequencies – I thought my score on that site was worse, but I think I could still hear as well as a 32 year old – at least by that sites standards. He thought it was so funny that I couldn’t hear the rest of the sounds he could hear. I didn’t think it was funny.
I’m glad that a lot of you can hear all the frequencies. I’m 29 and in my right ear I can’t hear 12 and 14 then 17 thru 22. My left ear stops at 17. I know that I have hearing loss just not sure how bad or if I should get it checked out but this test has helped to show me that maybe I should get them checked. Thanks.
I cannot hear past 12Khz. I’m 17, is this something I should be worried about? I used just my laptop speakers then I used apple headphones then I hooked it up to my Sony stereo system which I know is capable to play past these tones. Neither made any difference to me I still cannot hear past 12Khz
I’m only 16 and I couldn’t hear number sixteen at all. Wow.
Anyone on here that can hear over 15 is in denial or lying.
The technology used here to compress the audio limits upper frequencies, like MP3 compression.
I can’t hear over 15,000 yet in my dedicated Tone generator. I can hear upto 19,600khz
