post #376 of 4359

Sorry for the off-topic post, but I just clicked that link too and couldn't even hear that mosquito.

I tried this one and my hearing rolls off at 15666hz:

Never thought that would be considered "excellent"

 

Dang, I was sure I had hearing as good as a bat :normal_smile :

 

I used my Q701 and should try another one.

 

Oh yeah, i'm 33. No concerts for me and I don't listen too loud.

Cool test 15.2 for a 42 yo.

On topic I wonder if tube rolling will simply involve desoldering. Many alternative tube choices? I'm not familiar with these mini ones.

This isn't meant for rolling.

Seems volume dependent. I was around there at a softer volume, but then could hear starting at 18.5 at a higher volume.

66 yrs old you loose the highs but bass and midrange is still good to go still a headphone nut

I just tried that test. My hearing doesn't roll off until 18K. I'd say that's pretty good. I am only 19 though so that may have something to do with it. :)

I just tried it on my cell phone and iem. Should I be using quality equipment to properly do the test?

It's a YouTube video; high quality audio is automatically out the window. If you're using IEMs that only sing up to 17K you might have issues, but that's not very likely.

I like to use http://www.audiocheck.net/audiotests_frequencycheckhigh.php when I'm playing around and do the blind test to help verify.

 

Obviously calibration is going to be a big factor. Since you are setting the volume yourself, your results may or may not be so accurate.

 

These types of tests aside, even if you could hear up to 20khz in a test with no other frequencies present, would you actually be able to notice in the average song? I think I would have a hard time. Maybe others wouldn't.

 

 

I'm considering picking this up to go along side the Magni. Hopefully it offers a different perspective on my music and isn't simply a redundant piece. From the current impressions, I think it'll be a nice add on piece for the price. Like one of the other members had mentioned, I was also considering a project ember to bring the tube factor into my music experience. Not having to deal with tube rolling looks like it could be beneficial but possibly restricting. The price and ease of use is winning the fight.

Maybe equipment matters too.. Ill have to try them at home...

Yea, I think there's something wrong with that test. I heard sound at 18kHz, but I know that's not what it sounds like. Also, I'm pretty sure I can't hear too far above 17K.
