EQ Listening Test

Our Discriminative Frequency Training Test used band-filtered noise to ensure a training independent from any musical content. The following test puts those frequencies back in their context, and uses a short music track instead of noise.

This custom track starts with an ultra-low frequency rumble layered with crystal clear chimes, followed by a conventional mix made from various “classic” pop instruments such as an electric bass, drums and other percussion instruments, electric piano, electric guitar and synthesizer strings, along with a male voiceover and female vocal line. The track covers the full audible spectrum and will be altered to emphasize a particular frequency band.

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.
