Of course it matters. That's why, in the interest of the pursuit of the art, true audiophiles permanently blind themselves with forks before taking the system to the last tenth. Low WAF, though. Everyone else just sees a guy with dark sunglasses.

On a slightly more serious note, it shows how the brain is the real audio organ. This plays a role in such things as the debate over whether we can hear (or more precisely, discern) ultrasonic sound despite only being able to identify steady state sounds below 20K (or less). Or, if you don't buy that is possible, then subsonic sounds as a component of music, which almost anyone, including non-audiophiles, can "hear".
