Made with AKG K77 straight out of the onboard audio card. Hardest parts were mp3 128kbps and the 50 Hz bass extension. But we got there.

Brilliant! Congratulations and welcome to the club! :L3000:

Stupid thing does not remember your progress unless you create a password before you start :triportsad:

 

Have to start again now.

That has only been mentioned like each time on here, Headfonia and Innerfidelity :rolleyes:

Done 93% - everything except the frequency band test now, being dyslexic really does not help with that one I easily hear the difference and know roughly where it is if it is a boost or cut, but can not pinpoint exactly where it is, always had that problem with this sort of thing,  will try it again when I'm fresh :).

I passed the basic part of this Challenge a few days ago. But I just realized that you all are using Headphones. I was listening straight from my speakers, is there a difference?

It is a headphone test. good luck doing this on speakers

Whoops. I must have missed those instructions.
post #158 of 331

hope you have very very good speakers.

I used my speakers for 1 of the tests, 50Hz filter ;)

 

I think it would be a good test of speakers.

Nope, you don't have to have very very good speakers to finish this challenge.

 

Believe it or not, I have finished up to most of the Golden Ears challenge with a cheap Logitech speaker under $100.

I was looking for challenge when i started to to do this with speakers instead of headphones, but I'll try to do it with headphones after I'm done Golden Ears with speakers.

I have absolutely no doubt that you will pass and then please come back when you have finished and tell us why :-)

How can you do the bass extension test which goes down to a 50hz roll off with cheap speakers? Generally logitech (or other 'computer speakers') won't even go that low.

Well, I did say I have finished up to most of Golden Ears and Bass Extension is exactly where I'm stuck. Maybe I do need a switch to headphones for this one. :)

I think I'll try it again on speakers and see if it's any harder or easier, just for fun!
