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.

    Cool sample... turns out I can hear up to 16 kHz! (I can hear if a T.V. is left on.) Good to know.

    First my eyesight, now this...

    I used to be able to hear all the way up to 22kHz when I was about 10 or so I remember being able to tell when anyone switched on a television anywhere in the house.

    Nowadays I can hear just about up to 15.5 kHz

    Ah well, Dob, I don't feel quite so bad then, at a few days off 64.
