Ow Owwie Ow!

Okay, my auditory frequency response isn't shot.  I can still hear up to about 17.5kHz, which is not much short of the 19kHz or so I could hear as a teenager.

Next time I test my hearing, though, I'll turn the volume down first.

1 Not me; I couldn't hear anything even when the sweep reached 12 KHz. I guess that's yet another indication that I'm old.

2 I was surprised, I was expecting to be down below 15kHz (normal range for over-forties).

On the other hand, my knees hurt. smile

3 I have teenage normal hearing in my left ear, which is great for someone about to turn 42.  I'm literally half-deaf in my right ear.

Eight years of working in the radio biz, and 14 years of theater is to blame.  I wore headphones/headsets all that time, and I always made sure I had one ear uncovered to hear what was going on around me.  As every theater I was in had the stage manager to the left of the lighting control board, that was the ear that was uncovered.  In my first radio booth, the door was on the left, so I left one uncovered and carried on doing so through the years.

So... deef.
