I have to agree. In the end what matters is you enjoying it. But why do we have to separate that into subjectivists vs. objectivists? What is this, Griffyndor and Slytherin? I'm an objectivist in a way that I believe charts give me very straightforward and comparable data about headphones, and I'm subjectivist in a way that what I want is an emotional appreciation of headphones. I'm not one only, that's stupid.
A pure subjectivist will believe a silver USB cable produces a "slightly sweeter midrange with more extended treble" without ever understanding that's nothing but placebo created by price expectation and that USB cables either work or don't. A pure objectivist will insist that an amp is good because it measures well without ever stopping to think if he actually enjoys that, or if a certain point graphs matter more than music. You don't have to pick a team, because guess what - if something measures well, it also sounds good! :shock: the only exception I know of are tube amps, which are said to be amazing even though they produce lots of distortion. But that is also explained: they create a warmer, smoother, laid-back sound. And even though that might be what you want (for example, if you listen to jazz), that's not the "real" sound going through the amp, that's a colored version of it. And it's ok to like it - in fact stop liking something because it measured badly is pretty sad - but then what you like isn't the original product, it's a different version.
