    I actually do believe there are people who can't hear differences between components, because that's me.. sometimes. It's why I'm an irregular.

    I've been struggling with stress and sleep loss for a couple years & it strongly affects my ability to discern between components, everything sounds fatiguing and not fun. It'd be easy to become cynical if you've never had a receptive listening session, and your music sounds worse on your serious gear with your serious mood than it did that one time when you were drunk, in the car, or sleeping with your earbuds in.

    More like Head Fi can't tell if you're trolling or not, and don't want to deal with the headache of a personal bitchfest.

    Personally I think you believe only measurements are your lord and savior. People on here do not. Many have already brought up that it isn't the only science. I don't think this place is for you. Otherwise you'll likely just be put in the board of no return.

    No doubt. It takes a lot of training, often in collaboration with other listeners.

    But, even then, you have to be in the right mindset. You have to be awake and generally healthy. And listening tests themselves will wear you out very quickly. There are times I try to test some stuff out, only to find I'm in no shape to do so.

    Assuming you have the right gear (shit gear isn't going to help you hear differences) and the appropriate test tracks, other variables that could impact hearing abilities are things like ambient noise or hearing loss from age and other damage.
