Audio frequency range

The total audio frequency range is divided into the low frequency range, the speech range and the high frequency range. Below the low-frequency range, there is infrasound with subsonic tones, and above the high-frequency range, there is ultrasound, whose frequencies are also imperceptible by humans.

Audio signals include speech, music and noises.
