If possible try it over your high end hifi/phones, and toggle on/off the generator, with your eyes closed. I tried with my AKG phones direct in a 3.5mm output on a Lenovo laptop. (I’ll try again on my hifi, when I get settled in in our new house)
I concider myself having above average hearing. I’ve produced, mixed and mastered a dozen or so albums, and have quite a solid experiences with hifi/audio in general. No matter how good I think my hearing is, I can’t hear anything above 14Khz
Highres audio is an illusion in my world usage.

Be honest and post your result

I’m “only” 43 by the way

Thanks!

I think there is already a thread for checking one's ears using this tone generator. :D

But. Is the tone there when you can’t hear it?

14.3KHz, I'm 64. But I hear it more like a noise, rather than a pure tone.

Interesting (at least for me), sine and sawtooth are the signals I am most sensitive to. Square wave and triangle, I'm slightly under 13KHz
