VIDEO: If You Can Hear This Sound, You Are Under 25
Can you hear what are known as “Mosquito tones?” If you can, odds are you’re under 25. Take the test and find out if YOU can hear it!
There are lots of ways to cover up how old you are getting.
You can follow the latest fashion trends, pretend to get every joke on the Big Bang Theory, inject your face with a potentially lethal toxin or even listen to Radio One.
But there is one thing you won’t be able to hide from and that is your hearing.
If you are aged 25 or over you should not be able to hear what is known as the mosquito tone – namely a noise above 17.4kHz.
This is down to age-induced hearing loss, otherwise known as presbycusis, which occurs as the hairs in your ear wear down as they are exposed to sound throughout your lifetime.
For most of us this will happen by the time we are in our mid-twenties and continue to deteriorate.
Don’t feel bad! It happens to everyone! Share this with your friends to make sure their hearing is on par with where it should be!
