How Old Are Your Ears? Hearing Test Video Will Terrify You

Posted: Updated:

We all know going to concerts or turning up the volume on our headphones is bad for the ears, but we rarely think about the damage when we're doing it.

A new video from AsapScience will probably change that.

The clip reveals the age of your ears by playing different frequencies that you should be able to hear at different stages of life. Under 30 and can't hear 16,000 Hz? Uh oh.

Hearing loss is permanent and exposure to loud noises speeds up the natural process. Tiny cells in the ears degenerate over time and cannot be replaced.

That's a good reason to take care of your hearing, because the loss of it has been tied to a more rapid onset of dementia and cognitive decline in older people.

Ever wonder what noises are bad for you? Check out the slideshow below to help protect yourself.
