The physological rise time of the ear is of the order of 250 ÁS.

So anything faster than that isn┤t distinguised by any audible change to
the perceived sound.

This has been stated by a nuber of researches from the past and also by
Stephan Peus head of research at Neumann GmbH.

So 20 kHz cutoff is fine for precision audio.

Or a Neumann KM84 which within its bandwith, 20 kHz, displays near
perfect reproduction......:-)
