I MUST know the name of this song and any others similar to it.
As for my scores, I found it extremely tiring to complete the test. I got 9/9 correct at the start, then 12/13, 15/17, and ended with 17/20 at the end with great difficulty.
I ran the two files through the audio difference maker, and found that one was louder than the other. Definitely hard to notice, I had my track volume on 100% and my computer volume also on 100%. The biggest difference was at the start, the first 0.1 seconds where one of them is significantly louder than the other.
I have to say, thank you for making this thread, thank your for setting up this test. You've saved me a lot of money and grief in the years to come. I do not mind losing that little detail, I never want to concentrate so hard on music, and I want to spend money on headphones rather than something so small. For me it's not 'I can't tell the difference', it's more like, 'I don't care about it if it costs me $2000 for it', keeping in mind that it would require a perfect dac to give that quality.

edot: i realise that my source itself may not be showing some of the detail, but for that much money I'd rather get a few pairs of headphones.
