Golden Ears Training
Golden Ears Training/Certification
ILaB offers a specialized training tool and certification program - called the Golden Ears Training Tool - enabling customers to train their product developer to be more aware of the different attributes of quality audio.
What is a Golden Ear?A Golden Ear is a term commonly used in professional audio circles to refer to a person who is considered to hold special talents in his/her hearing. A person with golden ears is able to discern subtle differences in audio reproduction that most inexperienced and untrained listeners cannot.
ILaB developed an rigorous in-house training and certification program to ensure that team members are certified Golden Ears. As hearing capabilities degrade with age, our internal Sound Quality Process (SQP) requires that team-members are re-certified periodically to safeguard the quality of our perceptual test processes. Some of our team-members even take it one step further, and take pride in being certified as "Platinum Ears".
If you feel up to the challenge, we would be happy to test your hearing capabilities as well. But be warned, it's not for the "weak eared"!
