I mean that – don’t click on the link unless you are prepared to experience something unpleasant!
I can’t listen to the file, because it is painfully unpleasant. If you cannot hear the file you do not hear as well as most humans, period. This could have a genetic cause, but most likely you have been listening to music or noise at too high a volume. If you like to listen to music in your car, for example, you should know that it is very easy to turn music up too loud in that environment because you have to overcome the engine and wind noise. I strongly suggest that you:
1. go to an audiologist and do a hearing test – they play you different pitches over headphones and you have to react by pushing a button
2. you get hearing protection for when you go to a club, sit in an airplane, anytime you are around a lot of noise – check out this and this – I use the latter and love ’em!
You may not feel that this is a critical issue for you right now, but once you need hearing aids you will fee different. Nothing can truly bring your hearing back.
Please make an appointment with an audiologist right away.
