Test your hearing range! A series of pure sinewave test tones covering the audio spectrum from 20 Hz to 22 KHz, each preceded by a vocal announcement giving the frequency of the following tone. Tones created in Cool Edit Pro. PLEASE:- 1) Download the file, don't try the test using the Freesound preview. 2) You need a decent quality sound card/interface or you may well be hearing false sub-harmonics at the top end of the test.

    Can't tell if my soundcard or my ears are faulty above 14 kHz.
    But colours are wonderful and very useful to understand freesound coulouring scheme ;)

    After 16kHz my sound card (external Line6 Toneport UX2) stops outputting anything. I could hear everything up to there though.

    thanks a lot! Hear I was thinking that I've gone deaf or something but at 26, I can still up to 21kHz in spite of the fact that I listen to a lot of music on my headphones but I try not to crank up the volume to its max :)
