Hearing Test

Hi,
I was wondering if anyone would humour me and do the hearing test at this site?

http://www.phys.unsw.edu.au/~jw/hearing.html

Attached should be the version I did. I could do it again with better headphones if need be, but I have no idea if the one I just did is out of whack or normal or what!

Thanks,
Jon

So essentially you get to find out the response curve of your speakers!!! Cool...

I think my speakers play too big of a role in the curve I got to make it worth while.

Stumbled across that one before...
One thing I noticed: You've got to use headphones for this!

Other then that I found almost impossible to tell if tones of 250Hz or below are quieter or louder the the 1k. No problem to tell if they are louder then the frq. next to it but not the 1kHz. Also I am overly sensitive to 8kHz, had to drop that by 6dB compared to the 1k. But I knew that beforehand...

Yeah, my Dell laptop speakers are not able to reproduce anything below 200 hz or above 12 khz.
