im a noob too so take this with a grain of salt. But to my understanding It would be hugely beneficial if you could recognize frequencies by ear, because if you know what the frequency is, you would be able to tell what the note is by ear, assuming you have a pitch chart memorized...or have I been talking about pitch this whole time and not frequency?? Whatever haha. sorry.

Hey,
hell yea itll help, itll help you with mixing making quicker decisions unless you mix with a freq analyzer, it will help you ring out a room faster, if you make beats itll help you choose better sounds. pitch is frequency so it will help you identify in that regard as well. It will also help you identify a better mic placement position as you can identify what freqs are resonating/dipping at or the most to avoid or use to your advantage. i hope that helps.

there are a ton of ways. a couple are you could find a audio cd that does this. or you can set up a playlist of specific frequency's like 1k, 2k, 3k and play for a duration after a duration of playing you could record yourself saying that is 1k, or that is 2k. Once you have a good amount of material you can put them in a playlist and choose a random play pattern. As you advance try and trick yourself.

Theres a small program called "Feedback Trainer" by Chris Allen which is free online. The name is a bit of a misnomer if you ask me though. It`s actually just a sine wave played at different frequencies and doesn`t resemble feedback at all. Anyway, its basically a guess the frequency training device.

If you get tracks that you think are just the nuts production wise and slowly sweep a high and low cut across the whole band (not at the same time although you can do band sweep if you want) you can hear how much of each frequency they have in that track as its cuts below or above it.
Its pretty different for each genre and sometimes even for tracks by the same producers, as you find they have things sitting differently depending on vocals & leads etc but it really helps to get an understanding of how much of what is where in the mix.

Harman also had released a nice software for free, that allowed you to train your ear in equalizing. Basically it has a toggle button, where you could switch between the original and the EQ'd track - and you had to select the frequency band that was being EQ'd... I don't remember it's name, but it was very nice
