I was just thinking in regard to the post below.
I hear things in some recordings that others seemingly dont.
I have Shaded Dog's & Merc's etc that (to me anyway) are absolutely phenominal! They are smooth and flowing. Others dont seem to hear it.
Maybe I just have sensitive hearing? I'm 44 years old.
I realize that a person's hearing can also be "too sensitive".
Your comments please. thanks
When thinking about "sensitive" hearing remember that sensitivity to loud sounds is not the same as having low hearing thresholds. In fact, most people who have lost sensitivity to quiet sounds are over-sensitive to loud ones. I've never heard of any cases of "abnormally" low thresholds, or for that matter, exceptionally narrow critical bands. Curious topic, though.
I'm not over thirty and I've noticed a peculiar sensitivity to an upper mid range/lower treble glare or perkiness. It only occurs above a certain level and only with certain equipment. Go figure but I've always judged components upon this condition. Well others to but this effect I can stand it the least.
I agree. I have sensitive hearing (though not to extreme), and I count it a blessing to have it. It helps me appreciate music more.
Maybe thats why some individuals love vinyl and abhore CD's, and
Tube over Solid State.
