Average hearing thresholds our members

We have 1277 members who have indicated their audiometric thresholds here on the forum. I wanted to see what the numbers looked like. Here are the average thresholds.

For those who want more information, here’s the numbers:

That is very interesting. Clearly my hearing is much worse than the average of this group. I’m in the “Severe” band up to 2000HZ, then fall rapidly into “Profound” from there on out.

Yes, it looks like you’re just outside the standard deviation on many of the pitches.

Mine’s backward. :smile:

Finally! Something I exceed at, and wouldn’t you know it? It ain’t good…But there are a lot worse off than me here…

I didn’t expect to see the average low frequency hearing loss to be as bad as this graph.
Thanks for sharing.

don’t even look at mine!!! :laughing:

Wow, except for 250Hz, I am way worse :sob:
