But whatever - if you are enjoying your music, and believe you enjoy it more with what you are using now, more power to you. :)
I think its still inconclusive since many people who went in skeptical have noticed some difference, though it can not be fully explained why or how.
I'm not a scientist so I can't speak in scientific terms but think that science is great, though I don't put my whole-souled faith in it since I know no one knows everything about it. New things are being discovered all the time. In the past we would have called many modern discoveries miracles.
There are many things that have been discovered that defy known science.
Why do scorpions glow under ultraviolet light?
How do bumble bees fly, when their wings are too small for thier big heavy bodies, defying the laws of known aviation.
Why does the human body naturally age and die, when it's cells are designed to continuously regenerate.
Just because no one can explain how different USB cables can make a difference, doesn't mean it's not scientifically possible. For now those who do buy them can have peace of mind that they are doing everything they can do to assure the best experience possible. "Peace of Mind" has value and maybe worth a $120 USB cable.
