Test your headphone online

post #1 of 38
Thread Starter 

Dear Head-Fi'ers,

 

I set up a new page that hopefully will help you evaluate headphones, online, and determine which one offers the best performance when comparing different pairs. Feel free to comment.

Happy sound checking!

Very nice. Thanks!

One note, put all the files in a zip so it's an easy download and we can just go through the different ones.

Thank you for your feedback, Gl1tch3d. There are download links next to each individual file though. These may be less convenient than a global zip download, but offer the advantage of each being linked to a textual description explaining how to use them in practice.

Can you damage headphones or speakers by playing these tones?

With headphones, you'll be damaging your hearing before your headphones, feel reassured ;-)

 

The trick is to always start at moderate level. This is especially true when the test tone is near infra-sonic or sub-sonic, such as found in the headphone test page. Most of the sound tests do provide a voice-over though, which serves as a reference. As long as the voice level is fine (even loud), you will be safe. If you do not change levels from one test to the other, you'll be fine too.

I played this file via speakers

 

22 kHz >> 12 kHz
+ Voice Over

 

And a mosquito just fell and died right in front of my monitor...

 

It was truly a WTH moment !

Streetdragon: 18.5 khz is an very good result result. 30 Hz as a lower limit is probably not related to your hearing (unlike the higher frequencies - the bottom of the human range is pretty stable during life, and should be around 20Hz), but your headphones.

This is interesting... Maybe I should start promoting the same test file as a mosquito repellant/killer ;-)

The undefined wiring .wav sounds like it's coming from behind me.

22khz didnt seem right, I shouldn't be able to hear that high so easily. The Binaural was wicked cool thought someone hit my wall.

I swear I could hear 20khz but then nothing until 18...

 

Also, for the voiceover, is it saying the freqeuncy right after it has reached it? Because I could hear it before he said 20Hz and I didn't think that was possible.
