    Harman "How to Listen" software

    Dr. Olive talked about releasing Harman's "listener training" software last summer, and it looks like it's finally made its way into the wild. For both Macs and others.

    I've spent a little time with this in the last few days, and let me say that it is a challenge. I highly recommend a decent set of headphones as I don't think I'd have a chance at some of these in a speaker setting. Even those that you would consider simple in your head (like dull/bright comparisons) can get pretty tricky. Definitely worth a small time investment for the possible results!

    I did some of it but had to pause the testing. haven't had a chance to try it again. So far I've done well, but missed one. toward the end of the test, the 'dull/bright' ones start getting VERY similar sounding, at least on my $20 logitech speakers. ;)

    I made it into twentysomething cycles of the test and there was no particular end in sight. I had missed one at that point. Does this thing test forever or does it stop after some certain cycle count?

    I haven't found the way to make it work in Windows 7. It says it can't find the files necessary.
