Yeah well seems like a lot of people just say outright not to trust reviewers who talk of dramatic cabling miracles. The only headphone I have that can be easily recabled is my vmoda m80. I would not mind testing this out myself if someone could recommend a cable that would supposedly contrast my current m80 stock cables. But to justify dropping the money for the experiment, please recommend a cable that at least looks nice so in the vent I don't notice a difference, I still end up with a nice fashion alternative.
You consistently missed the actual question of this topic. This wasn't about "do cables make a difference". Its about what to do about reviewers and how to navigate towards smart purchases.
Also, your points about difference in hearing is completely irrelevant. It has been done with people who have good and bad hearing already. It isn't set in stone but the likelihood that you have better hearing than all the people in the studies so far is quite implausible. If I was to use discretion based on existing information, it would be nothing but foolishness to believe you over far more intense studies across a much wider sample rate. You are attempting to dispel decades of scientific studies with nothing but anecdotal evidence here.
I thought science already has proven people can perceive HUNDREDS of frames? The 60 frames was just a myth by marketers I think. It was never grounded in findings. In fact, science says that people do not perceive in frames to begin with.
