This test measures your hearing not by testing the lowest decibel of sound you can hear, but rather by measuring whether you can spot details in a sound played at your usual decibel level.
Are these two abilities directly correlated, i.e. if you lose your ability to hear at a lower volume, you will also lose your ability to spot details in sounds played at your preferred volume? Or are they two completely different attributes and losing one doesn't mean you lost the other and vice versa.
By the way, I think hearing is very interesting from a biological/science perspective, right up there with vision and smell (touch clearly being the least interesting and most primitive sense in my humble opinion, lol).
