    I could hear 19 and that was it. (I'm 38)

    I was so bothered by my results that I took the test again on a different computer where I could hear up to 14 and then nothing until I got to 20 and 21! So I don't know what to think.

    21. Couldn't hear 22 but it hurt my ears nevertheless. Also, I couldn't hear 18. Strange... Btw, I'm 27.

    That's just sad. I can't hear over 15.

    I worked in a factory for nearly seven years and I was afraid it had affected my hearing, but this is bad. I did a hearing test before I started and had great hearing. And I'm 28.

    I'm sorry. Too bad there's not a way it can be fixed.

    Doh! I was kind of hoping it would slowly come back. But how often do one really need to hear those high frequencies? It's just a shame, I should have known better. I think it was mostly because I always listened to music in my earpieces, with the volume turned up too high.

    same, and I'm not that old!
    Maybe I should cut out some concerts and the headphones 24/7.

    ^ Yeah, I'm not even 20 yet. I think that's the obvious indication that I need to cut back on blaring my music on my headphones. :/

    hrm.. i'm 30.. that 'can you hear like a teenager' clip fucking HURT.

    For the rest, i got up to about 18, and then the last few got progressively quieter.. i couldnt hear a high pitched screech like the others, but a lower pitch vibrating. I could tell something was going on, but it didnt have that ear piercing quality
