Training my ears for listening tests? 2004-02-07 19:50:30 I'm starting to get interested about doing listening tests, as I have now invested enough in my system to not worry about upgrades for a while, plus I would very much like to use these tools for the forces of good. But unfortunately I'm deaf and dumb when it comes to spotting encoding errors - I played around with LAME 96kbps transcodes from foobar a few days ago, and I was unable to A/B one sample from the original, and ABXing an easier one was very doable but tougher than I would have expected.Does anybody have suggestions for the best way to train my ears for listening tests? I'm aware of Arny's old site but the last time I tried to download all the samples quite a few were missing. Otherwise I intend on doing what I have been doing, which is to keep testing at the threshold of audible differences between samples, and perhaps download listening test samples and compare my results with those of others.
