I would highly recommend "Audiation Assistant 1.0" by Bruce Dalby. If you are serious about training your ear, then drilling tonal and rhythm patterns (with solfege) is the only way to go. Most other "ear-training" programs and books merely do "ear-testing", without guidance and a METHOD of developing a discerning ear.

INFORMATION ON Audiation Assistant 1.0 found here:

You can try EarMaster. I use it myself and I made good improvement.
