Ever wondered if you are tone deaf?

I found this site online that provides a test to see if you're tone deaf, having just bought a new DAC for my iMac I thought I'd try it and got :

So I'm pleased with that, what about you?

OK, done it, but I got 11, 8 & 9 as a score, but I'm still not tone deaf.😀

As an ex sound engineer I'm happy to get a 100% score.

Re: Ever wondered if you are tone deaf?

Well there's a surprise, I'm not tone deaf either!

I've never really given it much thought or fully understood what it meant, but there you go.

Re: Ever wondered if you are tone deaf?

That's a very good point @Mook but decent headphones give the old ears a rest.

 

I've sat at the desk and watched folk dancing a metre away from 3kw's worth of speaker sound and wonder about their ears now.

Yep nothing better than the heavy, gut wrenching thump of bass from a nearby TurboSound tower.

Re: Ever wondered if you are tone deaf?

I can't even hear it.... only kidding.

100% but not convinced it's that difficult to fail.

Re: Ever wondered if you are tone deaf?

When I tell people I can't sing, they invariably ask whether I'm tone deaf.  This test says I'm not; I scored 35/36 (97%), just got one wrong in stage C.  To be honest I expected to get more wrong in that section since I was starting to lose interest and concentration by then.  We used to have very stringent hearing tests at work (sitting in a soundproof booth with headphones and having to press a button when we could hear something, which was usually a sound that tapered off to nothing then came back briefly).  The whole test took about 15 minutes and most of us got so bored towards the end that we pretty much pressed the button at random.

Edit: Spelling.

Re: Ever wondered if you are tone deaf?

I don’t need an app to tell me I’m tone deaf. 

Although on the few occasions I sing, I do sound glorious. 

People around me don’t think so. 😬
