    Give this a go. I could hear 18, but nothing higher.

    I could hear up to 16 kHz. I heard something for the higher tones, but I'm pretty sure I was only hearing the lower pitched overtones.

    Are you sure you weren't hearing the lower pitched overtones? I can hear something for all of the links, but I can only hear the high pitched tones up to 16 kHz.

    I could hear all of them.

    I wear hearing protection about 75% of the time that I'm working. I fix planes, so it's pretty important.

    Someone was on digg today. I just saw this a little bit ago and I had fun being able to hear the higher frequencies while no one else here could hear anything above 14k.

    I hooked my laptop up to my good speakers and was able to hear up to 22khz. At work though I couldn't hear anything past 17k and I think it was because of the speakers.

    On second thought, my hearing is typically shite because I have awful ear wax that I have to get cleaned out periodically by my doctor. When it gets really bad, it not only inhibits my hearing, but it affects my sense of balance as well so I feel vertigo on occasionally when standing up.

    I wouldn't be surprised if I could hear higher frequencies after a fresh cleaning. This thread has reminded me that I may be due for one...

    Yeah, it depends too much on that so I really have no idea which was accurate.

    I heard all of them but, like sycld was saying earlier, I may have only been hearing certain undertones or something in the higher frequencies. But I don't care enough to figure it.

    I know I heard up to 19kHz. I'm not sure if I can hear 20kHz. There's a lot of high pitch ambient noise where I am.

    19 registered some sound, but it was faint. 20 was just about completely silent for me

    Peoples' results will differ depending on which speakers they use.

    I could hear up to 18 kHz on my laptop speakers, but only up to 16 kHz on my earbuds.

    Im' 19 and I can hear 22.

    But I'm listening through studio reference monitors, regular speakers etc will generally only have a decent response up to about 19, so don't be worried if it's lower than you'd think.

    That's called tinnitus and you should get it checked. You really don't want to go deaf before you reach 80.

    Tinnitus is the tiny hairs in your ear, which sense vibrations dying. Which is why you hear it most after extremes of volume, but it can just come on for no reason. After a while it'll go away, but you will suffer reduced hearing ability.

    Unfortunately there's not really a lot that can be done unless you want a hearing aid, pretty pointless when all you're suffering is slight high frequency loss.

    oh i've had it peak every now and then and cause me trouble, and i've heard the death cries of frequencies i'll never be able to hear again

    but i mean literally every second of the day, there is this high pitched squeal or whine that sounds remarkably like 19k on my speakers, just quiet, all the time.

    my cousin has the same thing and i remember the two of us having discussions baout how there was no such thing as silence

    Got to around 18/19...I have tinnitus pretty badly as well so got fairly confused as to which noise was actually there.

    I think musicians get it worse. My hearing in general is awful, practically deaf in one ear.
