I would suggest trying this hearing test and see what it says echalk.co.uk/Sci…tml
Generally humans should be able to hear up to 20khz, and the younger you are the better it should be

My hearing age is one year less than my actual age!
9 years less than my age but no surprise as I can often hear noises others can't!

I apparently had the hearing of a 12 year old. Pro tip: don't listen to this at high volume.

i can hear a loud sound at high frequency, but past 12 000 i can't really hear anything, i think high pitch sounds i just ignore

i think last time i went for hearing test with eye test, he said you can hear low sounds better than high
You lose the ability to hear higher frequencies as you get older nidcd.nih.gov/hea…oss - it's the premise of the Mosquito alarm that's supposed to stop young people from "loitering" - en.wikipedia.org/wik…ito
i got around 15800

...and often in your Rice Krispies.
You could just have crap speakers.

Get a proper hearing test done if you're worried, I think they're free.
I'm a little bit deaf in my right ear at the moment, it's blooming annoying and weird. I should be back to normal in the morning after a visit to the ENT clinic to have a bead removed which my daughter dropped in there on Thursday night

Too late, I can still hear it.
My hearing is 11 years younger than my age with that test. Just a shame I have glaucoma, would rather be going deaf than blind.
Years of ignoring the wife seem to have had detrimental impact on my hearing :(. My hearing age is 44 apparently, I'm only 35 :(.
