Think You Might Be Tone Deaf? This Online Musical Test Will Diagnose You in Minutes
Research done by Harvard Medical School has shown that people with bad singing voices can hear music just fine. It's people who are tone deaf, or amusics, who are unable to differentiate between pitches in music—rendering music nothing more than "traffic noise" for them, according to researchers at the National Institutes of Health.
So how can you find out if you're truly tone deaf? Jake Mandell, a resident in Radiology at Brigham and Women's Hospital and former Harvard Medical School student, has developed a way to check for tone deafness with a simple online test.

The test consists of 36 different smaller tests, which are each made up of two musical phrases. Your job is to listen and figure out if the two phrases are identical or different.

At 500 Hz you can reliably hear pitch differences of 20.75 Hz, which means you did better than approximately 16.4% of people who took our test

Is that good?

It is not an easy test.

I find the synthesized tones harder to follow than true tones.
I think most people would do better with true tones such as acoustic piano or guitar.
Round sounds versus flat.
