    depends on how good your remaining hearing is. As a child this is probably super easy. As an adult, this is going to be much harder, you lose your top end frequency quickly.

    Is the XSX audio chip contained in the SOC or is it elsewhere on the board?

    It's not as simple as frequency response and how high the speakers go. There is so much more to sound quality. For example with speakers, the soundstage a high end pair of speakers can produce can be astounding, given a suitable room/ other equipment.

    It depends on what you mean by the audio chip. If you mean audio chip as is typically seen on a PC motherboard, this is often just a DAC. Something like that is likely a separate chip on the XBS board.

    If you mean audio chip as in the hardware accelerated audio support that XBS has? This is built into the SOC.

    There's no codec / DAC chip in any of the 9th-gen consoles because they have no analog audio out. Interestingly, there is one in every gamepad nowadays.
