Teen Hearing Test

Picture 1

A public service post from bookofjoe.

Go here and follow the directions.

How'd you do?

What?

I can't hear you.

Oh, sorry, I didn't realize Skype was turned off.

Me, I heard the site's under-25 sound plenty good, even over the nonstop tinnitus I've had since I was 12.

I used to think the ringing meant I had a brain tumor but as the decades came and went and the tinnitus stayed, I figured it must be something else causing it.

At this point, don't know, don't care.

I'm so used to it now I'd feel bereft without.

Strange....I'm 30, but can only hear the sound in one ear. I'm using headphones, and even tried switching them back and forth, but I only hear it in the one ear....

I wonder if that's because I used to listen to my music at work with only one earpiece in my ear (it's the ear that can't hear the noise).

Ouch! Like rocketboy, my 47 yo ears didn't like that one bit.

Guess I'm younger than I thought.

And now, great, my younger than me wife feels old. Geesh.

Oh god, even with my 30+ ears with a slight bit of tinnitus (yes, I killed my own ears listening to music too loud via headphones), it was bloody earpiercing.

And Hammond Organ = Good Times.
