Amazing!

I can hear all those tones on headphones with ease and
I'm a high SPL audio junky cranking death metal tunes
until people bleed in the house.

To my surprise, others can't hear the upper tones

Are you using headphones? if not, try it. Maybe the PC speakers are janky.
I'm using crappy headphones and it's all good.

this is no where near real because all you gotta do is turn your speakers higher to hear it. like there needs to be a controled volume to actually be considered, right?

I used to have trouble passing hearing tests at our school. After 2 years of spl I am doing better than ever.

i truelly wonder if listining to music above 150db on a daily basis will have any long term effects

Fun fun fun....

Have done this 'test' on my 703, DM330i, and several Meyer pro speakers with a various tone generator(from a console sweep to a computer tone generator). 703 is about 21 is where it all cuts out, 330i 20 ish, PA 19 ish. By the way, this is at a constant signal level, not constant volume. This one on my stock Dell Laptop speakers I could just make out the 19kHz, left my headphones in Cincy and I'm 2 hours away from my speakers :(...

Anyway, my point being, you may or may not be able to hear that high, you could just not have a system that can reproduce that freq...

By the way incase you didn't figure it out the having to 'turn it up' is caused by the drop in responce of your speaker and your ears....

You're probably not hearing them, your ears are probably just ringing all the time and you THINK you're hearing them.;)



BTW, without having headphones at my disposal I can't hear anything over 15khz.

Speaking of this, even after all the LOUD music I listen to... I had a hearing test yesterday.

I have perfectly normal hearing. Score great on the test :)

I can hear the 18 one but I can't hear 19 and 20. Does it mean I have hearing loss if I can't hear it or do some people just hear differently than others?

turn it up

^when's the last time you had a hearing test? I can hear all those tones fine but I do find the test inconclusive. What's funny is that I've failed my hearing test before going to Iraq, then came back passing it..wtf!?

i would like to have a real hearing test i could hear all those tones, but im not convinced of the validity of this test.

I go to tons of concerts, and my ears are always ringing for hours after that, my car isnt as damaging as concerts i think...

obviously for you it has...yo ujust said you cant hear above 18K :crazy:

I played a sweep in my car the other day with volume on like 12-15...heard it all the way up.. I think a lot of it has to do with the speakers.

Its cool though..playing a sweep all the way up...it sounds like the sound it moving around you constantly...will be coming from the left, then the middle, then right, then together,then right.........interesting.

Dosen't mean squat if your speaker flat out can't play that high.

i know my car speakers hit around 100-110 decibals cuz i once measured inside my car with my music cranked with a decibal meter and i hit around 100 db for my normal listening and my ears kinda ring afterwards like if i iwalk in my house and it's almost dead quiet.

I wouldn't be too worried if you can't make out 20KHz very well...guys generally have rolled off HF hearing anyway compared to women and children.

Less-studied but nevertheless common in men is a notch filter found around the range of the female voice...which is switchable on or off depending on the amount of nagging in the listening environment. Preliminary studies have shown it to be very effective, with attenuation reaching 100dB/octave...

I don't think that test was that good. Those tones were stupid easy, where as when I used audacity to generate those tones it was much harder to hear them, they sounded more like real test tones too.

Yep heard them all with ease I think its a bunk test. When I take real hearing test though I just kinda guess lol.
