Some do, for sure. But there are many subtleties that are lost on young folk, they just haven't developed the skills to hear them.

Maybe some subtleties they won't hear, but they will hear the high frequency content that old folks won't

I use FR drivers and I try to "de-characterize" the driver toward a flat (as flat as I can make it...) frequency response. This seems to sound best to me.

Regarding live sounds, I can still instantly recognize the sound of an acoustic instrument when outdoors; riding a bicycle or walking. "That isnt someone's stereo" occurs often, so even with

-different FR in each ear
- tinn in just the right ear
- can no longer hear sounds I remember being there in certain recordings.

"live vs Memorex" is still a very real and striking phenomena for me. So I realize even after the rain of old age, there's still much room for the stereo to improve toward what I can still hear simply ordinarily. As I've mentioned before -

- some kid somewhere near the neighborhood is practicing his drums; "That's not someone's stereo".

- someone plucks a note on a uke as I'm riding through a parking lot on a bicycle "That's not someone's boom-box".

- The kid in the HS orchestra cracks the whip-slapper in Sleigh Ride. "Good luck reproducing that"

I am not a medical doctor or a neuroscientist, but the following link is a discussion of auditory neural circuits which distinguish frequency. It is exactly in line with the topic, and may shed some light as to why, notwithstanding of auditory degeration with age, many sounds are still correctly distinguished.
