Say what?

eh? Ars had quite a good thread on hearing capabilities recently. The thread went on to discuss how home audio equipment (especially computer audio equipment) can’t reliably produce tones greater than 20khz, but some people can still “sense” the tones generated at those frequencies. Most consumer-grade computer audio equipment can’t generate sounds greater than 24khz, so I didn’t bother hosting the tones >24khz. You can get them in the the original blog post if you’re interested.

How high does your hearing go? I stopped being able to hear or “sense” the tones at 23,000Hz.

10,000Hz

11,000Hz

12,000Hz

13,000Hz

14,000Hz

15,000Hz

16,000Hz

17,000Hz

18,000Hz

19,000Hz

20,000Hz

21,000Hz

22,000Hz

23,000Hz

24,000Hz

    DrFaulken is always complaining that I never listen so here’s proof that maybe I am going deaf! Last one I could sense was 21,000Hz. 🙂

    Hmm, I think I stop hearing at 15K…
