Interesting way to approach it. Yes it obviously exists; or rather it did exist at one time. The OP reported that he heard a difference so it is clear that he experienced a difference in perception.

But we know that perception is based on many factors, only one of which is the air vibrations that are getting in your ear. So the basic question we have is: was that difference that was perceived due to differences in the air vibrations getting in his ear or was it due to other factor(s)?

If erin takes SY's test and gets 8 or 9 out of 10 right, it's a strong case that the differences were indeed due to the sound only.
And then we engineers have a huge problem...

This thread has pretty much run its course mudslinging and all and after much discussion amongst the mods it is closed.
