Courtesy of a link at HMS Defiant, I came across this hearing test. The results came as a shock to me. I know I have hearing damage as the result of too many years of unprotected exposure to gunfire; and, of course, my hearing has deteriorated with age. Even so, this has decided me to get a formal hearing test, and maybe look into some sort of auditory assistance before too long.
Try it for yourself. It’s a bit long-winded, but the test itself (in the middle of all the verbiage) may be an eye-opener (or should that be an ear-opener?). It certainly was for me!
I fall into the bottom 40% or so on the test. Definitely room for improvement!
