I found this while looking for a sound file of 62hz. Reason being, 62hz is the frequency a perfectly healthy human body resonates at. Couldn't find it.

In any case, I found this you tube video, which is a hearing test of some sort... & was fascinated by the comments.
The 13 year old could hear all the way up to 20khz!
Most others averaged at around 17 khz.
Apparently, the older you are, the lower the frequency you can hear...let's see if that holds truth.


It doesn't take long, & PLEASE be considerate to your pets if you have any



I'm 22 years young.
I could hear from 20hz up to 17 khz.
I think it disappeared at 18khz.
But when I first tried I could only hear to 15khz
(My ears have been blocked for 4 days now, due to sinusitis) but I don't think that would really make a big difference)

This should be quite exiting.


And would love to see what the hearing range of the members here are. Just for fun.

PS.
If anyone can direct me to that 62htz sound file, I would be really grateful.

If you have tinitus the high frequencies never leave.Trust me I know.

Well, that was interesting, thank you! I couldn't hear anything until 40 Hz, and could hear continually until about 7 kHz. I now know the approximate frequency of the ringing in my ears, thanks to you. I've had continuous ringing/hiss since the age of 10. Currently, it's at about 6 kHz, although it changes to some degree from time to time.

p.s. I'm 52 y/o. I've had pretty severe hearing damage for most of my life.

cheers

I could sense the vibrations starting at 40hz, but could not actually hear it until 50hz.

I lost the sound at 14kHz, but continued sensing the vibrations until 16kHz.

Some of the frequencies caused me physical discomfort. starting at 3 kHz my heart began palpitating, and I started to feel nauseous, but this gave way by about 7 kHz and I felt fine for the remainder.

Very neat, and also strange. I was surprised to find that I had physiological responses to some of the frequencies.

EDIT - I'm 24, and I've got slightly below-average hearing thanks to the military!

What is tinitus?? I have a constant hiss, I wouldn't call it a ringing...but I believe that could be attributed to all the electronics around me most of the time.

Sorry to hear that... But I suppose it's normal to a degree. I would love to know why you can hear less as you get older. Or rather, why grown ups can't hear certain frequencies as well as children do.

Awesome! I'm envious...

56 years and 150 till 14...17k i could detect something resonating but not hearing a tone, so i'm missing all the bass, huh!

I could hear the test signal from 80Hz to 13Khz ... I'm 43 years old.

I did this test aged 14 and could hear up to 18Khz then. So it confirms my own theory that my hearing is slowly deteriorating with age.

I know pretty cool, right?

A lot of the frequencies over 60 hz gave me an exited feeling in a way... but I admit some of the lower frequencies made me uncomfortable, like I wanted to turn it off.

I think is going to be my new obsession..

I could hear all up to and including 19khz. Does that mean I'm like.....totally psychic or something?

Heck, you did better than I did and you're ten years older than me!

mid 40 hz to about 11 khz,
The last hearing test I did for DoD job, the doc told me i was about 3 points away from being legally deaf in my right ear.
I shot a rusty sawed off shotgun of my uncles and the shell exploded and my hearing has never been the same.
Edit to add my age 26y.o male

Very interesting thread too, apologies, I ought to have said !

RedBird, I felt a bit nauseous too at the mid range of the test ... how odd.

Cheers again, OP

I'd like to go back and see if some frequencies make me consistently uncomfortable. We should compare notes. If you've got anything else like this, send it my way!

I'm 43, I could hear 40hertz to 16kilohertz, but I think I'm hard of hearing a bit? I like stuff loud.
