Interesting read. I'm glad I'm not one of those people. But this experiment they did has me wondering if they had used high end, high fidelity headphones, like HD800 or SR-009, would the results be any different. I think if I was to participate in their experiment and they had me use some $20 headphones, I probably wouldn't elicit a response either since I'm used to good headphones, and they'd deem me one of those who can't enjoy music. :p

The persons I know who are tone deaf are also more or less indifferent to music, regardless of sex or other factors.

 

A considerable minority of audiophiles I've met over the years have been pretty indifferent to music. It's more like fascinating sound effects for some of them.

In the novel Century Rain by Alastair Reynolds, a future civil war included a bio-weapon that infected the brain and removed the ability to understand & enjoy music. This was supposed to so demoralize the enemy, that they would choose to join the other side, which had a way to repair the damage using nanotechnology.

Well there are people who got no soul (and I'm not talking about gingers, but imagine that line being said by a black guy with a brass instrument that isn't just on his knuckles).
