I found this on internet, http://virtuelvis.com/archives/2004/09/audio-test-cd

It's a full Audio test CD with 63 track of 10 sec each, start from 20 Hz go to 22000 Hz

I just test it with my Grado sr60 from my PC i can ear both from 20 Hz and 22000 Hz , at 39 years old i guess it's not so bad

Can be usefull for both test you headphone and you ear capacity But Beware of volume you use it, particullary mid range, first try at LOW volume !!!

I copy his warning about that

Warning
When playing the Audio CD in a CD/DVD player, caution with the volume setting is highly encouraged. The CD contains frequencies your system might not be able to reproduce properly. These frequencies, while not subsonic, may cause damages to your system if the volume setting is to high.

Caution is also encouraged with regard to your hearing: Loud noises, like the ones on this CD may cause hearing damage

Nevermind, I got it. I had to change my DNS servers.

Once again, I can hear the 22kHz tone on both my headphones and my speakers. I have to turn the volume up a little louder than normal, but I can hear it. I can hear 15-20kHz without turning the volume up. My HF sensitivity starts to drop off after 18kHz.

You will need 7-Zip or another program that understands the 7-Zip compression format to decompress the file. Please note that while the archive is only 218KB compressed, it will expand to 106MB when decompressed.

That's some crazy compression.

Yes, but i test it with other files, it depend of what kind of file you compress, for this one it's Amazing, for a .avi it's same as .rar

I think it's because all of the files are nothing more than pure tones. That's a whole lot of redundant information that can be gotten rid of.
