Pros- They warned you; you cannot say they did not warn me. They warned you in the title, in the HIT description, at the first page of HIT.
- They even told you that there is no progress bar but they mentioned the number of the parts.
- There is no more stupid continue button like their previous HITs.
- McDermott s always pay their bonus.
Cons- From now on I am bipolar bear.
- I am hearing sounds even half an hour after the the HIT completion. Wait, there is someone at the window. Nope, no one is there. Hey, someone is knocking at my door. Still, no one.
Long Auditory Perception Study, Up to $15.00 BONUS possible in 1.5 hours - $0.15 +13.74 bonus Confirmed!

ProsI did this to myself. I will say that.
ConsEven if you have perfect pitch and never miss a single trial for the full $15 bonus, with this time, the pay would be $10.46/hr. You absolutely WILL spend at least an hour on this HIT, and you can't do anything else while you're listening to endless tones. The trials are unmarked so you never know how much further you have to go. This is a trash HIT on every level, and I'm only not marking it as underpaid because two seconds of thought would have told me that this was going to be underpaid. They're explicit about that with the pay rate/time estimate up front. My fault; I was blinded because this requester usually pays better.
LONG Auditory Perception Study, Up to $22.50 BONUS possible in 2 hours - $0.15 +18.47 bonus Confirmed!
$14.85 / hour
01:15:15 / completion time
ProsHourly is pretty good. Once you get into a groove, it goes by fast. Bonus is shown throughout, and again at the end so you know exactly how much you earned. Some of the trials are really hard, so realistically most people will earn around $15-18 bonus, which is still pretty good.
ConsObnoxious noises constantly blasting in your ear. A few breaks are needed unless you want to get a migraine. No progress bar; have to either keep track yourself (requester tells you how many tests there are) or guess based on how much bonus you've earned so far.
