But I just noticed that it'* slightly dependent on your speaker setup. With earbuds (the closed type), I could manage 16k, but only 15k with dinky laptop speakers...

I was able to hear them all.... Well almost... I had a lot of trouble hearing the 13k tone and wasn't able to hear the 24k tone at all.

I know I'm almost deaf to certain tones and my hearing of those tones is much more limited in my right ear. Ití* a weird hereditary thing from my dadí* side of the family.

Dang... 41 and i only made it to 13K. 14 and 15 I could hear a slight buzz, but not the sound itself....

Of course, I knew I had a bit of a hearing loss going in. Too many hair bands, machine guns, aircraft engines and sirens growing up I guess...
