Blind Test

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Where are all the blind tests?  Mine are some of the only that I can find on these forums.

 

I am putting this out there, those of you with any add on "hi-fi" gear (I don't care if its a e7/e9 or a 1000+setup), I challenge you to conduct some blind tests and posts the results. PLEASE!

 

Don't turn this into a thread about the validity of blind testing.  I personalty won't buy audio equipment until I can get objective proof, aka a blind test in audio.

A thread called "Testing Audiophile Claims and Myths" or something of that sort opens with a compilation of blind tests.

 

EDIT: It's on this forum page.

Curious why you don't do the blind test yourself by buying and keeping/selling/comparing what you like and don't like, or go to a meet?

I absolutely would if I could.  I have never found a meet to go to (I move around the country all the time).  I have never found any place to test audio equipment.  Everything I have bought I have sold because it fails my blind test with the exception of headphones themselves.

I'm thinking of giving blind tests a go but there's a few serious barriers:

I need someone to swap things around for me

I need the time to do it

volume matchine is hard :(

 

Once I get a couple of hours I'll post method, tracks, sources, headphones etc but I'm pretty certain my NFB-2 + HA160 will be easy to pick from my mac's onboard. I'll need to come in midway through a track to avoid the telltale static of the onboard too :|
