Frequency Listening Page


In this activity you will play four different sounds on your computer — from very low (50 Hertz) to extremely high (10,000 Hertz). Since humans can hear between 20 Hertz - 20,000 Hertz, these four frequencies are well within your hearing range. However, please be aware that this activity uses your computer's speakers, and that some computer speakers may not be able to play all four frequencies.


If you are using a Mac you will likely get better results by clicking on the files below.


 50Hz.wav  50Hz.aif
 100Hz.wav  100Hz.aif
 1000Hz.wav  1000Hz.aif
