I'm sceptical too.
Only if all variables are the same except the dome material, we can prove it scientifically.
I've heard that there's only one way company that makes Be domes on this globe. And they specialize in Be so I guess they don't make the alu domes too.
That's what makes it difficult to prove: I can't imagine there isn't some weight or shape difference between the Bliesma alu/be domes. Weight difference we can confirm by looking at mms. Shape?

The vast majority of beryllium membranes are sourced from Materion as beryllium foil. Some vendors have their own tooling to work the material, but it still is notoriously difficult to shape.
The Bliesma domes have clear geometric differences. T34A and T25A domes bulge outwards, whereas the profile of the Be versions is more subtle.

Be is the best metal material for tweeter application. It's a unique combinaison of lightness and hardness.
Concerning the sound, they sound nice ( I least on my B741) but I doubt that they sound special It's just high fidelity, very low distorsion tweeter.
