Re: Pamper your ears...

I've had 3 or 4 pair of Sennheiser headphones over the years and found them to be of a very high quality.
However I could never say that my ears were loved by them.

I used to sell Senheiser headphones - they were the best ones we did and rarely had any issue with them Smiley

I had a lovely pair of Sennheiser headphones costing around £50 in the early 90's.
Soon after moving in with the, now, ex-wife her Jack Russell chewed them to bits. Should have heeded the warning Wink

Re: Pamper your ears...

I have Sennheiser for my pc, and they fully live up to expectations. They also make my son jealous which is a plus.
For flying I prefer my trusty Bose noise cancelling headphones, they do a great job of quashing background noise.
Now Zen, but a +Net residue.

Re: Pamper your ears...

I can still manage around 16Khz but I've noticed my hearing range has declined quite rapidly over time. I used to be able to hit 25Khz which was annoying as I'd pick up SMPS and television output stages from a distance.
I still have very sensitive hearing but the overall range is reduced.

Re: Pamper your ears...

A few years ago I fitted a dimmer switch in my young son's bedroom.
He complained about it whistling Huh
At the time I could hear up to about 18kHz (8 years as a live sound engineer killed that) so I've no idea what frequencies he was listening too Shocked

Yeah, I used to be able to hear really annoying high pitched whistling from TVs, dimmer switches, all that sort of stuff and then I joined a band......

I don't know if it my crappy speakers or rubbish ears but with that one I can only hear up to about 8000Hz but I can hear at 0Hz  (it isn't actually that low a frequency so something is going wrong) and I get a beat frequency - like a police siren - which is odd
Using this one http://onlinetonegenerator.com/ I can get up to 11,700Hz  and you can forget the lower frequency  as the sub woofer just doesn't cut it

Likewise... I could hear all manner of noises when I was younger.
Just tried the test mentioned above and the cut-off point was around 13kHz starting from a little above zero.
