Default How's your hearing?

How's your hearing?

Mine feels fine. But testing it with a sinus tone, it stops around 12 - 13 kHz. I'm 46.

Would you mind sweeping a tone and telling me your result, so I get an idea of how damaged my hearing is? I'm hoping it's average.

This is something that requires a pro. Go see an ear specialist and have a sweep test. That's something that everyone in our business should do early on, and then repeat every few years to spot degradation. High end response starts to slide after the age of 18-20(earlier for those that abuse their ears with loud music).
