For Beatles: hearing loss and age... 2001-11-23 15:12:57 Ok, first off anyone can reply here (of course) but since I get the feeling that most of us are under 30 or slightly over 30 your answers really miss the point of my question...What is the question you ask...Well I would like to have an idea about how much hearing loss occurrs around the age of 40-50...?Now since Beatles has been an engineer for 25 years, it seems to me he must be at least 45 if not 50, which is perfect for my question.I, RD, am 29, a musician and a little worried aobut how much hearing I will naturally lose in the years ahead, and would really appreciate it if Beatles would be willing to share some of his experiences with us...One last disclaimer: this thread is not meant to imply or argue that Beatles has lost significant hearing, or to invalidate any of his claims...So Beatles:1. Have you lost any hearing at all compared to your 20s (maybe very slightly?)2. If no how did you preserve it, any tips?3. If yes, what apects have you lost? For example, can you hear sounds over 19 Kilohertz? or only up to 18 Kilohertz now?4. Have you lost bass frequencies or treble freq, both? or more one of the other?5. Any other comments?Thanks.
