    I got a 77.8% (28/36) first time I did it, though I think I can do a lot better if I try again. I think if I had professional ear training then I could've gotten over a 90% easy. See how you do, and post your score.

    72.2% and never trained my ears so this is not bad. But I see I will have to start now working on it.

    cool test

    im very sorry to inform you, but this is a test to see if people can easily be manipulated. not the check the "tonedef"factor.

    This seems to be more of a memory test than a tone-deafness test. Some of the phrases were pretty long and difficult to remember. I think you should get at least 1 or 2 replays.

    EDIT: This one's better:

    I did the second test posted and got 80.6%, not bad considering I have no musical training and have never ever done any ear-training lol.

    We had a thread on this before, and as mentioned by Desecrated this is not really a tone deaf test.

    Damn dude, that's pretty good :metal:

    I got around 1.6 hz. I'm borderline awesome :lol: (anything below 1.5 is really really good).

    I think that this is one of those things where you can actually train your ears and get better at it.

    at 500hz I can reliably differentiate two tones 5.7 hz apart
    and I got 83 on the test (the one posted by nik)
    considering I have no musical ear training I feel pretty good about that

    This is definately a tone test, not a memory test, because it makes you hear the "hidden" notes that some people cant make out easily, While someone with a highly developed ear can get 10 notes in the phrase, someone with a worse ear may only hear 8 notes..

    I got like 91.7% or something like that.. screenshot was on the other thread of this.. One dude on here, forget who though someone got 98% from here wasnt it? Didn't do the second one yet but I will when I have more time
