“this one sounds better”

White or impulse noise? The best bit would be when they turned it off.

I was speaking about the Reiss meta-analysis mentioned in the first paragraph (and hotly debated here), not the study in the article.  But yes, it is all specious at best.  Here’s an interesting quote from the comments:

 

Joshua Reiss of LANDR - a for profit hi res service, gave a particular paper the highest "trained" weighting in his "Meta".
"Further Investigations of the Audibility of Digital Audio Filters in a High-Fidelity Playback System" Jackson, Stuart et al 2016
THERE IS NO SUCH PAPER in the AES library, because it FAILED review.
Ever seen Reiss et al mention that since?
Me neither ;-)

 

I checked, and he’s correct about him founding LANDR.  Whether hi-res audio is a factor in LANDR’s business plan is not evident at first glance of their website.  Though this certainly could explain Dr. Reiss’ hesitance to correct the gross misrepresentations of his results presented in his PR spiel.
