Re: What? What? Say that again, please.
There's a fun little experiment you can do, where you use a tone generating app on your phone that tests for how high you can go. Basically, it goes up and up slowly and the moment you can't hear it, you press stop, and it'll tell you where you're at.
That's not the fun bit though, the fun bit is doing breathing exercises, like deep, fast in and outs for a few minutes to fill your body with an abundance of oxygen and then do the test again. You'll hear higher notes than before!

Re: What? What? Say that again, please.
Oh yeah, and it at least shows that different systems have different ranges and also clarity for those ranges. Hmmm, I'm not sure that's that bad, but try the breathing thing, see if you can get higher than that!
Also, this is definitely not something you can compare to a professional's opinion on the quality of your hearing and if you need a hearing aid or not, it's just a fun little thing you can do.
Speaking of fun breathing techniques and their results, there's a very interesting one that can improve your ability to hold your breath. Basically, if you can hold your breath for 30 seconds now, within half an hour of practice, you can hold it for 3+ minutes easily.
