The only comment I would say is that the use of the word "golden ears" is a
bit misleading as it is often associated with audiophiles. It has been
proven with significant research (read Floyd E Toole and others) that
audiophiles, musicians, sound engineers and music producers - with similar
hearing thresholds - were indistinguishable in "judgment variability" of
subjective listening tests.
In fact, the largest single variable that correlated to poor "judgment
variability" was hearing loss... and unfortunately for us older guys - the
biggest correlation to hearing loss was age...
