Here is the link. You can either select hearing test to the left, or 432 frequency where you can just enter frequencies until you find your upper range.


Hearing test


Curious how people here fare. Perhaps not real good. Myself I am pretty normal for my age, I can just barely hear 14K.

52 (and 1/2 laugh.gif ) and I can hear 15 khz.
Surprising considering how much loud music I've been around and for how long.
Cool.

I did not see a test but 17000 hertz is where it's nearly inaudible however I can hear it. 18k is silent.

Going opposite in direction my breaking point is 90 hertz. 100 I can hear.

Just listening from phones speaker so I am not sure the quality.

Hey this is pretty neat! smile.gif Thanks fkalich! I seem to have holes between certain frequencies. When I listen to the hearing test where it just starts low and goes higher, there are points in which it seems like the volume decreases and increases again as it goes through the spectrum, it seems to do this a few times as it runs from low to high frequencies.Has anyone else experienced this?
Also I noticed in the comments section that someone was opening up the tone generator in 2 tabs and running different frequencies in each one to create different harmonies. Be back later with some results but for now I can say as it goes to the very high frequencies it gets very tough to distinguish the changes in pitch , or maybe that is just the ringing in my ears. biggrin.gif

Ok back, 11hz to 19.5khz but like I said, there are holes where it almost drops out and then comes back in as I go to the higher frequencies. To hear the very low frequencies I was using a sub with the bass cranked up all the way. I couldn't hear them as low with headphones. I could hear the highs best with headphones.

I don't think you can rely on a phone's speakers, try with some speakers or headphones that you know have a good frequency range.

Interesting. There is sympathetic resonance, i.e. when you play your electric or bass guitar a certain note makes the desk or something shake, not higher or lower just that note. So perhaps 440Hz resonates with the average human skull while 432 does not?

A few years ago I read somewhere there was a conspiracy by the Nazis to make concert pitch 440Hz. Ah just found something easily again now:

Some styles of music are deliberately dissonant though, so I don't think it quite means Iron Sky.
