I was actually required to do Golden Ears in college.
I found doing the testing was helpful, mostly in regards to hearing a mix and knowing whereabouts I'm hearing something that makes me uncomfortable. By the end of the set you're doing 1/3rd octaves, reverb decay times, etc, which I don't think was specifically helpful in identifying those things long term. The general knowledge of 'hey, that bass sounds sorta funny, I think it's around 140Hz' is useful in it of itself, but I'd guess those are skills you could develop simply by mixing a lot and/or by the first few sets of drills in golden ears. Overall good practice, but it isn't going to turn you frequency wiz overnight.
If you're just starting to mix and work with audio, I think there's something of value here, but if you're hoping it'll help you develop perfect pitch or something, you're out of luck. Alright two cents time. I was also required to do this in my audio courses and also frequently quizzed on it. Hindi Typing Pdf Download there. Given that the 'optimal listening position' couldn't begin to fit 12-15 students without breaking the laws of physics it just wasn't possible to expect this of us. Seating was a casual affair though, and any students who took the initiative to position themselves in between the speakers had an obvious leg up. Thing is though, it separated the wheat from the chaff this way. If you cared, you moved your ass to the middle of the room.

If you didn't give a shit (and unsurprisingly most students didn't) you stayed seated where you were. Only a few students actually bothered to take advantage of the optimal listening position.
For the rest it was their own fault that they didn't get anything out of it. I took a one hour class once a week in audio school, and i'm convinced it was the icing on the cake.
I can't say it made all the difference, but i think it's where my confidence comes from. When i eq something, i just pick a random frequency and sweep it back and forth and up and down. Find where it sounds the most alive and leave it. That ability came from doing the golden ears work (which was painful) and taking the test and have the test marked by a peer (even more painful) and go back and retake lessons i didn't pass. Do a little bit every few days and stay with it. Ps, i haven't studied other audio ear training courses, so my opinion, is of course, MASSIVELY biased. Pps, lots of luck detecting compression in one ear and not the other.
Writing a test about which ear (L or R) had the compression and at which db level. Just about killed me. Didn't pass that part, but did really well on everything else. Reverb in L or R?
Type..: Sample CD Golden Ears is an AUDIO eartraining course - not perfect pitch or piano lessons- that sets out to teach your ears to hear the frequencies, the signal processing, the compression, the stereo, the distortion and the amplitudes used in your recorded material. It comes to you on eight audio CDs. Created by Dave Moulton, Grammy-nominated recording engineer, educator, musician and acoustician, the lessons it contains represent thirty years of his extensive studio and teaching experience.
As you work your way through the hundreds of exercises, you'll find yourself hearing recordings (and not just your own) in a completely new light. The purpose of the course is to help you 'hear into' your recordings, to understand and be able to describe the elements that those recordings contain, their spectrum, dynamics, reverb and other audio qualities. There are four volumes, with two CDs per volume, each covering different components of the recording process. 1: Frequencies Trains you to recognize boosts and cuts in all ten octaves of the frequency spectrum. Progressive drills build from simple boosts in music to more demanding single octave cuts in pink noise. 2: Effects & Processing 31 possible signal processing changes, grouped into simple families: amplitude change, gross and subtle distortion, slow and fast release compression, equalization changes, stereophony anomalies and time-delay / reverberation settings.
