[[[Audio hearing tests thread.......]]]

Post by treitz3 » Tue Sep 01, 2009 2:44 pm

You know of a good audio link that tests the capabilities of your hearing? Post it hear please. I'd like to assemble as many of the good ones as possible. Don't know why quite yet, but I have something in mind.

I'll start.... http://www.noiseaddicts.com/2009/03/...-hearing-test/

As the tests come in, I will update this post so that any time you would like to reference them.....you can without reading pages and pages of chat. There are a few tests archived here on this forum already and as time permits, I will attempt to find them again and update. Feel free to talk about what you can and cannot hear and what may annoy the hell out of you. Just a warning, some of you might want to keep the volume DOWN on some of these tones. Otherwise your brain might explode.



Posted tests:

In search of accurate reproduction of music. Real sound is my reference and while perfection may not be attainable? If I chase it, I might just catch excellence.

The best way to enjoy digital music reproduction is to never listen to a good analogue reproduction.

Thanks gdb! Ok, I found a few more archived tests deep in the depths of the forum. From the mind and sole of our very own Kahuna.....

Tone perception: http://jakemandell.com/tonedeaf/
Adaptive pitch: http://tonometric.com/adaptivepitch/
Rhythm perception: http://tonometric.com/rhythmdeaf/

Here's one offered to the forum by our member Wrat that had a few of the members here at odds as to which one sounded better. Which one would you choose? If you know the answer already, don't spoil it for the others..........Let the battle begin!

The above was recently PM'd to me by a mystery member who will be attending this years CF. Interesting. You can find it on one of the same links above but I just wanted to point it out because it's a little different from the HF listening tests.

Have fun y'all!
