Isn't that what i wrote? Ability to hear existence of == able to hear softer sound. I was a kid once, hence I have better hearing long time ago than now. But I know that what i can do (i.e. my listening skill) today is a lot more valuable and important than what i knew then.

Nooo... there are different technologies, there are different purposes, and there are counterfeits! These are measurable.

If a capacitor is altering the sound then its only good for the bin !

Best electrolytic capacitors
anecdotes, anecdotes, and more anecdotes......
they do not bother me at all,
i will use whatever ecaps i can lay my hands on....
i have an ESR tester, and if the label on the cap does not come to within 50%
of measured value, i toss it into the bin....

If the spec says +/-10% why should you accept 50%? I have never seen such capacitor though. Even though I live around market full of fakes. But the best parameter to predict quality capacitor for supply bypass is the dissipation factor (tangent alpha).

that is just me....you are free to have your own standards...

+/-10% on an ecap? i do not believe it, the best thing to do is to measure...
