Going to the Chinese pronunciation Category on Wikicommons, you will find hundreds of short audio recordings from native speakers, most with the pinyin and tone marks on their info pages or within the filename. Download some to hear the differences in the tones. Try clicking one with your eyes closed or having someone else choose a word so that you can test your listening skills by guessing the tones that were said.
