    Default Hearing test

    I was able to hear all the way to 22 kHz :-). Once again, the mighty Van Halen narrowly escapes a lawsuit :-).

    Hmmm, I'm afraid I've been using the ol' iPod a little too much. I barely made out the pitch at 16, which would be great if I was 50...not so great at 18.

    BTW, I'm 41. I was scared to take this test but did so much better than I expected to.

    Shit. Nearly 42 and 12k ok, but up to 17 I had to put my ear over the
    computer speaker to hear anything, and noticeably better in my left.
    I usually plug the left only because that's the side the drums are on most of
    the time. I've never found a satisfying pair of earplugs, so I guess it's back to
    the tissue in both now that my hair covers my ears.

    I actually did better than I thought I would as I'm almost 37 and have spent over half my life performing music WAY too loud.

    I could BARELY hear 17kHz but didn't think I'd make it that far.

    Could hear the 17 quite clearly, but 18 was a bit of a challenge. By 19, nothing....

    i felt 16 more than heard it. It was very faint but I felt the vibrations in my ears. Beyond that, not a bit...pure silence and I had the volume all the way up.

    Me too. Not bad, that's probably about average. 19 was nothing at all.

    Edit: I put my ear to the speaker on 19, I wouldn't say I could hear it, but I could kinda "feel" something. 20 with my ear up there is totally nothing.

    I wonder what the average for an adult human is?

    Got as high as 16, which was faint. 17 was a no go.
