Originally posted by KikeG I'd like to ask Garf, what did you hear, or how you "felt" the two different samples?Edit: for Garf, I guess the test could have been easier with a better soundcard.
Originally posted by KikeG By the way, wouldn't the initial 9/10 scoring be valid as a test pass?
Originally posted by Garf If I would have stopped at that moment, yes! But the 16/32 ruined the first result.ff123's test requires you to take all ABX trials into account.GCP
Originally posted by KikeG There is logic in that from the probability point of view. But there's also some non-logic on that, from the common sense point of view.
If you had stopped after the 9/10 test, you could have said you met the challenge. But if next day you tried again and got the worse results, then you would have to regret from what you said the previous day? That would mean that your bad results at now invalidate your good results of a previous test?Also, it is very easy that if you are "inspired" you get good results, But If in another round you are somewhat less "inspired" or tired, or whatever thing that decreases your sensitivity, you get bad results. Shouldn't the first test count as valid too? Not an easy question, I'd say, because probability and temporal unsensitivity get mixed and can't be separated.Well, thinking further, I guess the probability rules, so a higher numer of trials should be performed until the results get stable.So... ABX testing on subtle differences is more difficult than one might think at first, and that annoys me a little bit.Any thoughts about this?
