We hear--and embrace or block out--recording warts all the time. I hear them in my low-resolving iPod. The only difference is that people object to them when they are told that they are listening through a "monitor". Tell them it's a regular speaker, and they'll tell you it sounds "musical", "balanced", "warm", blah, blah, blah. Audiophilia is the land of sonic unicorns, leprechauns and the chupacabra, you forget.
