more an ear test for me.
around 15k, which seems normal for my age.

Somewhere between 15800-15500Hz.
At 15500 I definitely heard it clearly.

There is also this: https://www.echalk.co.uk/Science/biology/hear … g/resource.html
For the same purpose. I can say my neighbour's dog enjoys it.

I got my hearing destroyed with tinnitus some years ago. So my hearing is shit, and that is not cool. And no it was not music, that gave me tinnitus. But constant work noise from 8 A.M. til into the evening, not fun at all. Thankfully, I still have hearing left, and the hearing I have is something I cherish, and every time I am at concerts, I have ear plugs. Cause it is important to protect what hearing I have left. Fuck tinnitus !

Imho best would be to change the frequency by hand.

Okay, with this one, it's 16300 Hz. 16350 is out of range for me.

With an ASUS Xonar DGX sound card and Edifier R1280DB speakers.

Were you going to say something clever or did you try to troll with those quotes ?

So let me be perfectly clear to you. Every time I am at concerts I use earplugs, to protect my hearing. The reason why I got tinnitus was because of workers working in the building I live in , whom worked from 08:00 A.M. till evening, and it was at a level of noise, that my ears could not handle. And my hearing was damaged.

According to the youtube test and the one in post #3, my threshold is around 17,100 Hz. Must be uncommon at my age...

Not that I really trust youtube audio compression to preserve much fidelity at higher frequencies.

I am 42 in 2 months....

The maximum frequency you can hear is:
14185 Hz
Your hearing age is:
42

This is on a basic Creative bluetooth speaker though - I should test on a proper hifi

I have not been at concerts since the pandemic. But I really do protect my hearing.

Are we certain that after youtube's magic the frequencies are what they say they are, especially around the ends?
Results are logical but unless someone downloads the stream and verifies it I wouldn't trust it too much.
Also playback is an issue, any equalizer/effect/processing can mess it badly and I'd bet one would get different results on some expensive studio monitors than laptop speakers for example.
