Tested using a DT880:
According to the video, I top out at 17 kHz, which puts my hearing age at below 24. According to my own tests with a tone generator (taken right after the video, and likely at a lower amplitude), I top out at 18 kHz, which also scores as below 24.
I'm 25, so I'm a bit ahead of the curve it seems. The 18 kHz figure hasn't changed since I first got my DT880 back in 2010, so my hearing doesn't seem to have deteriorated significantly in that period. Or the DT880 can't produce anything above 18 kHz. That's always going to be the problem with this kind of test--you can't hear what your headphone is incapable of producing.
