Switch to : Full Octaves
Equalization (EQ) refers to the process of altering the frequency response of an audio system or a sound file. EQ can be used for esthetic reasons or to compensate for unwanted bumps or holes in the audio spectrum.
The following files will help you to discriminate missing frequencies across the audible range. By training your ears to recognize those missing frequency bands, you will acquire the ability to locate unwanted frequency dips by ear and find the correct EQ fix in one go.
|40 Hz||63 Hz||100 Hz||160 Hz||250 Hz||400 Hz|
|630 Hz||1 kHz||1.6 kHz||2.5 kHz||4 kHz||6.3 kHz|
|10 kHz||16 kHz|
Listen to each file and associate the missing 2/3 octave band with the value of its center frequency.
|40 Hz 63 Hz 100 Hz 160 Hz 250 Hz 400 Hz 630 Hz 1 kHz 1.6 kHz 2.5 kHz 4 kHz 6.3 kHz 10 kHz 16 kHz|

To pass a blind test, you will need to perform 10 trials at least, obtain a high score and reach a high confidence level: 95% is standard to rate statistical significance. It means that your score outperforms random guesses by 95%. There is still a probability that you just got lucky though, 5%. To reduce such probability to 1%, keep testing until you reached a confidence level of 99%.
Once you have succeeded in getting a score of 100% without listening to the individual labeled files during the test, your training will be complete!
