        I could hear the 14khz but you don't have it listed. 2 Minutes later and I can still hear it ringing in my ears..probably not a good thing.

        My dog really perked up at about 17khz

          I hear 15kHz, the 16kHz is more like pressure on the eardrums. I really thought I would have been able to hear at least till 17 or 18kHz
          crawdad; I guess I figured wrong about you guys. That's why I used the 10 options the way I did. On AGF, where I found this there's guys claiming to get the 20kHz with speakers on full blast... Mebbe ah shudda thunk it ovah a bit hardah, huh?

                I could hear 15 kHZ.

                My hearing is strange - if all is quiet, I can hear quite a distance. I was in a jury pool and there were some questions that each prospective juror had to approach the bench to answer in privacy. I could hear everything and had to move. The bailiff didn't believe me at first.

                If there is any background noise, forget it. In noisy clubs when I was younger I couldn't even carry on a conversation.

                  Anthony; you work with woodworking machines right? Other large petrol or diesel driven macinery too? That might be the cause. In Netherlands we call this condition machinedoof, machinedeaf. I have the same thing. I can hear a pin drop at 40 leagues (whatever that means, you get the picture), I can hear ants mating in the grass so to speak. But when I'm in a restaurant or in a bar and there's a ceilingfan or a large fridge, I can hardly understand what my companion is saying. All I'll get is the drone from that fan or that fridge. I shoulda listened when they lold me to wear hearing protection driving tractors years ago. This condition won't improve either.
                  Crawdaddaaaaay; with you it's different, you probably have what we call OostIndisch doof; tricky to translate but it comes down to your hearing what you wanna hear and instantly turning stone deaf when you're hearing something for the gaz-illionth time. It's a medical condition, look it up. (got yr back buddy)

                    After the diagnosing of our ear conditions, I think we are going to have to start calling you "The Good Doctor".

                    Patient: Doctor my leg hurts, what should I Do???
                    Doctor Olav: Limp.

                    Sorry my mind wanders in 50,000 different directions sometimes and I just write what pops into it.

                    Will telling my wife I have "OostIndisch doof" get me out of my assigned household chores??? That was funny. Thanks
