RE: Audio critics should publish their hearing tests

I am older than most.

Yet, when I sit with younger people, including audiophiles - who certainly have far better hearing from a measurement standpoint - I will consistently point out things in the sound that they simply missed.

Do I hear as well as these folks do? From an audiologist's standpoint, definitely not.

Yet this phenomenon occurs as much today as in the past.

So I do not worry about reviewer's technical measurements. If they have great measured hearing but cannot hear differences in components or set-up, what good is that?

Best regards,

Jim Smith
