    I listened on small desktop speakers. Could it be they don't reproduce the tone above a certain level?

It's not an insignificant improvement and I think you'd notice the difference. (especially when you get your lugs sorted!).
    Yes it's similar with a well adjusted sub.

    I tried one of those tests a few years ago on a white iMac, heard to 15k, tried 16k and couldnt hear anything, thought i'll burn it to disc later and try it on hifi, left the page up and thought nothing more of it, about an hour later Sophie, who was in the other side of the house, and said "dad whats that horrible noise"

    Based on that I'd suggest your speakers are more than capable.

    I suspect it was that Can album he has.
    20 years ago we had Johnny Cash, Bob Hope and Steve Jobs. Now we have no Cash, no Hope and no Jobs. Please God, don't take Kevin Bacon

    I am auctioning the speakers I have bought recently (it was always my intention to sell them on at a profit, a small hobby) and have made them available worldwide. Most sellers of speakers sell to the UK only but it limits the market. Also, foreign buyers like British names, even though the speakers could be made in China or Taiwan.

    It seems I am attracting morons. I have now cancelled bids from three members who messaged me to ask I do so.

    Nice one. It must be really annoying not being able to hear properly. Happened to me once. Was a relief when it was sorted.
    Do to others as you would have them do to you. (Luke 6:31)

    From that time on Jesus began to preach, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven has come near.” (Matthew 4:17)

    I've got used to not hearing fully. Perhaps my brain has compensated, I don't know. I think I can hear better now but may be sent to Audiology for a test.

    You can do that in Boots these days, but why you'd need to change your foorwear for a hearing test is beyond me......
