My Ears of Gold
I've been doing ear training 30 minutes or an hour every night for two months on a site called SoundGym and reached two milestones recently. One is this fancy award.
I'm also in the top 10% of all users. I'm not sure I can actually hear any better but I sure am better at listening for details which comes in handy when producing electronic music..
All this isn't too bad for a 61-year-old guy who punished his ears with too-loud music for a lot of years and who blew an eardrum out in sub school in the Navy (and never told anyone because I didn't want to wash out) which left me partially deaf in one ear.
