The hertz is equivalent to cycles per second. Kilohertz, or a kHz, is a measurement of frequency equivalent to 1,000 hertz.

Kilohertz is unit of measurement for audio signals, alternating current, and a measurement of wireless signals.

The frequencies of sound waves, since the audible spectrum of sound frequencies is between 20 Hz and 20 KHz are measured in kilohertz. For example, middle C (C4) on a piano keyboard produces a frequency of 261.63 Hz.
