Hearing Test with Signal Frequency

Recommended Posts

Many things affect how you'll hear the low frequencies coming from your speakers. A room is full of nodes and nulls. You'll hear more or less low Hz just by moving around the room. And your speaker placement will affect the position of these nodes and nulls. The best you can do is to get the best low Hz sound in your sweet spot. For these reasons, and since you feel low Hz as much or more than you hear it, you don't want to evaluate your speaker's low frequency response by ear. Use a mic and REW to do it.


I'm 49 and my high frequency cuts out at about 14,000Hz.

I'm 51 years old and I was curious about my hearing capabilities. I tested it using the Youtube video below on my living room system (Denon RCD-m41 + Klipsch RP160M). 

I started hearing the signal at 36Hz and I stopped hearing anything around 12,400 Hz.



you can't compare a  5-10 minutes  hearing test  with frequencies   with  sounds  you are used to hearing  -



 sound  with musical instruments , or street sound   is  natural ,  as far as I am concerned , hearing tests should be given with everyday sounds and  various levels of hearing , rather than  tone  frequencies ,


-  if you can hear a record playing music at normal volume levels , you are not hearing impaired , if you do not ,  but only  at  a  louder volume , you are hearing impaired
