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.

    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 :)

    This is a great test of your audio interface and speakers/headphones as well. I could hear fine at 15khz, but at 16khz the sound just completely stopped. Anyways, thanks a lot, this is useful
