Discriminative Frequency Training - Full Octave Bands

Switch to : 2/3 Octaves  (difficult)


Equalization (EQ) refers to the process of altering the frequency response of an audio system or a sound file. EQ can be used for esthetic reasons or to compensate for unwanted bumps or holes in the audio spectrum.

The following files will help you to discriminate frequencies across the audible range. By training your ears to recognize those frequency bands, you will acquire the ability to locate unwanted frequency bumps by ear and find the correct EQ fix in one go.

Training Files

The audible spectrum has been divided into 10 bands (octaves spacing), from 30 Hz to 16 kHz. Listen to each octave and try to associate it with its respective center frequency.

31.5 Hz 63 Hz 125 Hz 250 Hz 500 Hz
1 kHz 2 kHz 4 kHz 8 kHz 16 kHz

Test Files

For each column, tick the appropriate radio button. When you have labeled all 10 files, click the "Submit" button to obtain your score. Reload the page as often as you want to perform new tests.

 31.5 Hz  
 63 Hz  
 125 Hz  
 250 Hz  
 500 Hz  
 1 kHz  
 2 kHz  
 4 kHz  
 8 kHz  
 16 kHz  

Once you have succeeded in getting 9 or higher without listening to the individual labeled files during the test, your training will have been successfully completed.
