Trust your ears

I have a question: why is a thread called Trust your ears in the Objective-Fi forum?

 

I must say that the same question crossed my mind, and I was somewhat concerned that my replies might be Off Topic. 🙂

Asking someone to identify an object that they know nothing about though is similar to asking questions like "Did you forget something?"...

 

Or, perhaps better still IMO, "What did you forget?" Or, when you are trying to find a lost object, "Where did you put it?" 🙂

It's also not lost on me that @March Audio seems to find his way into every argumentative thread. 

 

Good to know, and to see that others are not alone in making that observation. 🙂

They are simply individuals that are peed off because I have disagreed with them and or shown their comments to be wrong.

 And I suppose you are not when you can't resist unnecessarily repeating exactly the same comment three times like an echo chamber. 🙂

Im not what?  It was just an excellent example of the disruptive behaviour @kumakuma , I and others have been referring to.

 

If you will excuse a political analogy, you sound not unlike Donald Trump's self-serving description of his "perfect conversation" with the leader of Ukraine that led to his first impeachment. 🙂

That’s what I’m saying I believe I recall: Toole and/or Olive referring to an orientation given listeners they characterized as untrained, and when I tracked down the orientation, it did indeed talk about how to listen for flatter frequency response.

 

Do I assume correctly that you are referring to this? Harman's How to Listen

Toole published his first speaker research in 1985-6 (years before joining Harman) that indicated that certain measurements of loudspeakers correlated extremely well with subjective preferences of "advanced" listeners. The subjects were given minimal instructions and were not trained before taking the test, AFAIK. For those early studies, they were chosen from among musicians,  sound-recording engineers, and audiophiles.ing less consistent results. 

 

Before joining Harmon, Floyd Toole was Senior Research Officer of the Acoustics and Signal Processing Group at Canada's National Research Council, where he used the facility's anechoic chamber to measure speakers.
