This message shows that you are in the first category from citraian's list. You keep saying bias control testing. All that you proved is that your methods are fundamentaly wrong.
As i wrote in one of my articles :
As I said before we rely most on our vision, so the hearing is not our best sensory input, thus most of us don’t have a very good audio memory. This is an interesting test for audio (rhythm) memory. If you score badly and cannot tell the differences between different rhythms, it will be very hard to tell the differences between some audio gear ( as soundstage, details, dynamics, transients differences are harder to distinguish than rhythm changes). However, in time your audio memory gets better and your ears more sensible to these aspects.
This may be one of the main reasons this hobby grows on you in time.
You may also want to join the Philips Golden Ears Challenge which has very good training and tests. I have passed all the tests and received the “Golden Ears” award. I thought it was fun and actually quite helpful.
I am really curious how well the people participated in the tests would do at the rhythm and golden ears tests.
If they score badly....your tests were useless.Edited by dan.gheorghe - 7/5/14 at 3:04am
