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 can hear up to 17Khz, but i had a firework rocket blow up in my face once in my life and i listened to my ipod loud when i was younger so that may be why i cant hear past 17Khz and i mean i can just hear the 17Khz only just. so yup :P

    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.
