Default How many of these can you hear?

I was struggling to hear 19.9! I'll be interested to see if anyone else can hear them all

Apparently, That's impossible. Click on the radio button, and then choose "Get Results Now".

I will try this test later on, my computer is a noisy Son of a Gun... Hah

If it truly is 21.1KHz, then with all due respect, i'm pretty sure that it's impossible.. I would be supprised if people's speakers are making the sound sound different... if you see what I mean

nope, some people can hear higher. The average is 20KHz.

The average is 20KHZ, yes, and also thats what most sound cards/speakers/headphones can deliver also. If the sound card only supports up to 20khz, which most do, then even if your drivers on your speakers/headphones can support higher, all you'll be getting is a stretched tone, and probably nothing at all in the later stages.

It most likely won't be just your ears that are the problem here.

EDIT:

I can only hear up to 16.7khz as a tone. The others, up to 21.1 I can only almost feel, and not hear, though 21.1 isn't accurate, as its lower than some of the ones below it in tone, but thats going past most sound cards/speakers thresholds.
