I can hear 15 just fine and 16 I can kinda hear.

I swear that working next to a huge air conditioning unit for 3 years killed some of my hearing.

I played in so many bands and went to tons of loud concerts (big ones and local shows) as a teenager, never wore ear plugs. I'm pretty sure I have some hearing damage. I guess my frequency hearing is ok but I wouldn't want to see the results of an amplitude test.

21 was really hard to hear, i cant do 22. I scored 100% on my hearing tests at meps too. They made me do it twice. I have always had very good hearing

oh shiz, I could hear 12 fine but had to really concentrate for 14.  15 was just silence.  Is that bad?

Well the article says not hearing over 15 when your over 25 years old is fairly common, so I guess it's not too bad.

I hear 14 fine. And then nothing for 15 :(
Do not follow where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.

ok, I tried it again with my laptop speakers all the way up - now I can hear 15 and 16 - but not 17.

There is a 61 year old guy that works for me and he can't hear at 8!

So if I crank my speakers up I can hear a hum while 17 plays.

I could hear 14 but with 15 all I could hear was a tiny click at the start and at the end. Used my headphones.

The first time I tried it all I heard was 8. That scared me. But that was with a bunch of other noises in the room and my volume at somewhat low levels.

I've always had average to below average hearing, so I'm not surprised. I was surprised when I took a hearing test while at an ear/nose/throat doctor visit and he said my hearing was normal. I was also surprised when I saw how much that cost, especially since I had no other medical expenses and I had to pay it directly because of my deductible. :(
