This test will help you evaluate the shortest time difference you can hear. This version is the easy one, intended for home-theatre users. You will be asked whether two sounds are synchronized, or not (2-way test).

Musicians and studio engineers, please switch over to the 3-way test (more difficult).

found on iOS 11 roundtrip latency not short enough (around 20ms)

Very interesting Mike. Didn't think I could still hear a 10ms delay but got 9 out of 11 right. Maybe my hearing isn't as bad as I thought!

nailed the musician's test.. 100% correct on the triple.

10ms is approximately equivalent to standing 10 feet from the source

10ms is about what I use when I delay a left vs. right vocal track to "thicken".

It's definitely a learned skill. The 3 version was very hard for me.

Weird I got a 60% on the 2-way but 100% on the 3 way?

But with my extreme tinnitus I'm surprised since the high-hat was in my "noise" gate especially its volume level, while I assume the testers made the levels equal the high-hat seemed LOWER than the bass in the 2 way?

In this case not sure what I was suppose to learn about myself since the test was "in a vacuum" (i.e., no context or if you are from the method-actor school of thought "what's my motivation")

You engineer for audi?

Not sure how this test would affect that at all.
