    I claim I am age 26 and can hear to 53 kHz.

    I think hearingtest.online does a decent job for non-clinical measurements. I did one a few years back and saved the audiogram image. I should do another one and compare.

    The sister site has several tests, including "mosquito" (17kHz) which I can still painfully hear:

    @Syzygy Bit sad that I can only just barely hear that mosquito tone now when I had a significantly easier time of it just a couple years back. Ah well, as long as I can still enjoy music I stopped sweating being able to hear all the way up to 18k or wherever.

    Your hearing is fine as long as everything from Topping sounds like shit.

    I will be happy on the day I don't hear the mosquito tone. When I was a kid I heard active ultrasonic alarm systems (like in jewelry stores), and couldn't stay in the store. Thank goodness those days are gone.

    I've no idea how my hearing is as good as it is; starting at high school I would do homework with metal blasting loudly in my headphones.

    Heavy Metal damaged my hearing too. I used to like the ringing noise when I slammed pieces of steel around. I wish there had been health and safety regulations back then!

    And... My recent theory is that my hearing damage goes back to measles.
