Who said that? If it has any value as a thought, might apply to babies up to 2 years old, otherwise just gibberish.

I never heard of a "psycho-acoustician" - not saying there isn't somebody who self-proclaims that's their title. There are cognitive and human-factors psychologists who know something about acoustics and there are physicists who know something about hearing and testing humans (like Toole).

There are humans testing humans
That's fair!
But, as Ben remarks, who are them? Do they have the right to put in phallacy some tests? What are those tests?
Or is just Scott's rambling, as it emerges from the vague sentence.
And what Toole says about height? I've read a book about ecolocalization and its use through experienced humans in various fields, one being the recognition of characteristical noises in the environment in the background of a phone call, yes -like those in the Tv movies like CSI etc.
Another chapter was about eating in a dark room restaurant; another about the mike positioning -the ones you see suspended on the head, when captured inside the frame, otherwise you oughn't see 'em- in popular Tv fictions and how the changing of the rooms, a different set, made the audience to write to the production about a different 'feel' in the scenes.

I'm a self-proclaimed expert, BTW

I have always found music to sound better after a day outdoors.
