Home Speaker Asylum

General speaker questions for audio and home theater.

Dumb Study

Participants never proved they could hear a difference.

They merely voted on which version of the Bali "music" they preferred.

That proves absolutely nothing.

Random guessing could easily lead to people preferring either A or B

BUT THAT IS NOT PROOF THEY CAN HEAR ANY DIFFERENCE AT ALL.

People will choose A or B because they are trying to please the experiment leader -- rather than saying "I don't know", or "I can't hear a difference". True of high end audio too!
