How Good Are Your Ears for DJing? - DJing Tips

What’s Your Hearing Range?

This is a fun one. We all know that the human hearing range is 20 to 20,000 Hz, right? Well, it’s also true that with age, a gradual decline starts to kick in, mostly at high frequencies. Check out the nifty test above that lets you quickly test how young your ears are.

I’m 31 and my upper limit is 14 kHz. This means that if there’s a sound higher than that in music, I simply won’t hear it. So much for the 20,000 Hz limit in my speakers!

How old are you, and what’s your hearing range? Let me know in the comment section below.

    I am 30. I can hear 17 kHz by turning my headphones a little up.
