My Grado RS-1 makes clicking noises at 17k and above ... for the OP's first link. Any idea what this is? I also get it at 30Hz

Probably computer noises...sound card, cooling fans, switching power supply, case vibration.

hm... I hope not. I use bitperfect from x-fi out into an external dac to avoid such problems.

I can hear 21kHz if I crank my speakers up to 40%, but I can hear 20kHz and down just fine at 15-20%.

19k ;(

very cool test. I can do about 19.5kHz. I'm only 18 though, so I have a bit of an advantage to some people.

Cool Test. I can hear up to 18kHz with my Klipsch X5.

On DT990pro with the volume cranked I can just make out 19k but under normal listening conditions 17K is my cut off point. Still, that's not bad considering I am no spring chicken. On speakers I think it is about 15k.

16khz

It is normal not to hear very high frequencies as you get older. In the UK they are testing devices to keep teens from loitering outside convenience stores by playing high frequencies through outdoor speakers that only younger people can hear.

16 khz, am i deaf ? , at least i can hear bass to 20hz

if i may ask a question...i was always interested in why headphones frequency range capabilities is far beyond the capabilities of the human hearing? why do they make them like that? and what is the diferences between a 20-20 can and a 5-45 one? is there a diference between them?

interesting. I can hear something at 20khz but it is more of a feeling. I don't really hear anything, but I know there is a sound playing. I guess I probably just hear it very faintly. Either that or my macbook doesn't go that high - that's probably likely actually.

And don't most headphones only produce up to 20?
