PLEASE TAKE CARE WHEN SETTING THE VOLUME ON THIS TOOL, PARTICULARLY WHEN USING HEADPHONES

  1. The generator is set to start at 1000 Hz (as indicated in the text box below). Make sure the volume on your phone or computer is set low to start with – this should be the ‘loudest’ tone that you can hear.
  2. Press ‘play’ to listen to the tone.
  3. Move the slider to hear all frequencies from 1 Hz to 20,000 Hz, or 20 kHz.
  4. Use the control buttons to apply an increment or decrement to the tone.  
  5. Press ‘stop’ to stop the sound playing.
