Default Useful to know

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qNf9nzvnd1k

With good headphones on a modest volume, I heard 20Hz clearly, but I topped out at 14,000Hz.

Warning: Take care with volumes at the higher frequencies, & do not use this as a test if you already have tinnitus.

With your warning, I did anyway.

I just rode the fader the whole time. Looks like I'm good from about 38 to 14k

This might be deceiving.
I can hear everything up to 14k in this example but when I stood in an audiologist’s booth There were frequencies around 3-4K that I didn’t hear at all at low volume.
The audiologist brought the volume up at each frequency until it could be heard and then noted that level.

Curious why it is an issue if you have tinnitus?

Cool test. I got 20Hz to about 13.3KHz. After the sound disappeared, I noticed a very soft phantom sound until the end, sort of like a police siren. Not sure what that is. Anyway, apparently YouTube has some audio compression algorithm that ignores frequencies above 17KHz so noone will hear above that on this test, and probably only 20 year olds and younger will hear above about 14KHz.

I saw it reported in a few associated articles that listening to these kinds of (informal) tests can set off tinnitus in those already with the condition. I have no way of corroborating that, but thought it best to mention it just in case it has some validity.
