      Here's a do-it-yourself one: http://www.audiocheck.net/blindtests_frequency.php?frq=13

      I have not tried it myself yet. I was able to have one done by an audioligist.

      Thanks Mick. Are you not in the UK? I made a typo on that post I meant 'above' not 'about' :mad:

      How high did the one you had go up to?

      I'm in the US. My test went up to 15kHz. It was done as part of my tinnitus consultation at a local medical school. I did have to request it. I don't think it was a standard part of the consultation. I asked for it because I had measured the frequency of my tinnitus at about 13.5 kHz, so I was curious if I really had a hearing loss there. The test showed that I did have a loss in the 12.5-14 kHz range, but I had to ask, "How do you know if it is a true hearing loss or if the tinnitus (perhaps from some other origin) is just masking external sound at those frequencies? The audiologist said, "In truth, we really don't know."

      Yes, I've wondered that question too. They can play the tones as 'warble tones' rather than straight pure-tone to get around this. I dont know if it gets around it completely though.
