In this science project, a student chose to test students' ability to hear sound in different ranges of pitch.
What group of frequencies do teenagers hear best?
Reactions of teenagers tested
- Same volume
- Same notetakers and sounds
- Same distance of speaker from person
Teenagers would hear the high frequencies best.
All of the subjects heard the high frequencies best.
All of the teenagers heard the high frequencies because the high frequencies played the loudest through the headphones.
I think that it was a little unfair, but I don’t think that there was anything that I could have done about it. The frequencies were so loud that people that weren’t wearing the headphones could hear them.
