Not so golden ears
In my post about Golden EarsI mentioned it was easy for anyone to hear what high-end systems have to offer - even the UPS man. HP (Harry Pearson) sent me back a note that read: "The ears have little to do with it it's what the brain makes of what the ears hear thus, a golden ear is someone who knows how to listen, who knows the sound of music" Indeed. I have friends in the industry with severe hearing impairments that are better than most I know for figuring out what's good and bad in a system. As HP suggests it isn't your ability to hear, it's your memory of what music should sound like through those ears.
