Can You Hear Like A Teenager?

Musicians should have pretty good ears, but many sustain hearing damage from being exposed to loud music. And most people also lose some of their ability to detect sound in the high frequency range as they get older. I’ve always been averse to very loud music, but am definitely not a ‘young person’ anymore, so I was pleasantly surprised to find that I apparently still have the hearing acuity of a teenager.

Find out if you have too by trying the Teenager Audio Test (also known as the Mosquito, when the sound is used to deter young people from hanging around in public places).
