.... and, fortunately, the music excerpts were played as loud as the room's music system could comfortably do, it was turned down at the first really loud passage. But was that the sound system's comfort level (distortion) or our ears - oh, yes, the brain - after listening to a man talking with no amplification?

If you are unbalanced music can sound cold/flat/"distant" and not as involving.
Just readjust your brain bias and there will be no problem anymore.

The brain adjust and adapts really well. It also fills in the missing pieces but have problems adapting to noise and frequencies that sticks out as too loud.

I well respected member here told of how he experienced distortion at a concert and when he wore acoustic ear plugs the sound cleared up.

Orchestras need to warm up before a concert, would that same cacophony warm up those golden ears?

Strangely deleted posts, Scottjoplin!

... the thread should perhaps be "do you ears need burn in?"
Or, does your audio perceptual system need.... etc...
