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.

    I got up to 17khz. I'm 20, a DJ, and a producer. I used Audio Technica ATH-pro5ms headphones rated 15-28Khz on a low volume. The standard hearing range is 20-20Khz AT BIRTH. high frequency perception degrades as you get older. Going deaf is my biggest fear. I'm going to order some full spectrum ear plugs! you all should too!!!!!

    It's all about the speakers ... at a higher volume, I can hear up to 19 Khz, after downloaded the sample. At a lower volume I could only hear up to 16 Khz.
