Audio experince is sugjective and cannot be objective

as is in the case of community noise and noise and vibration rating and classification. There is no rigid objective means of determination, just guidelines and empirical data.

Objective measurements in audio are useful only for screening purposes and gear that measures well may not sound good. Those who cannot discern differences are just groups of individuals who cannot detect subtle or very subtle changes in temporal and special renditions of musical performances.

One so called 'objective' and well known criterion is the Fletcher and Munson loudness contours which were obtained by playing sine waves at different frequencies to audiences. Common sense tells us that no one would willingly listen to sine waves in musical reproduction.
