Some of them state they hear some of what I'm describing them but don't think it's such big a difference. I think it might have something to do with how since the dawn of time males were mainly hunters and their hearing evolved more than the women's to make them able to hear everything and tell the difference between even the quietest noises or something.
Anyway, I think this thread got sidetracked quite a bit with all the gender and spousal discussions.
Or they don't give a crap. My gf can hear most of what I describe just from a cursory listen but would rather not sit there and do so. The disconnect starts when I use words without exactly explaining what I mean. Words she's never heard before to describe sound and would rather just do something else than listen to an audio dictionary. Or when I try to make her care more than she would like.
To assume that men have some evolved state of being able to hear and describe sound is borderline ridiculous. It does a disservice to women trying to get into the hobby.
To get back on topic:
Looking forward hearing a Noble offering sometime soon.
