If you are going to try this test. You should try this test!!! Do not go down to my results. Rather download very quickly and run through with a pen to take a couple notes on your guesses. Then come back and compare.
Track labeled "ORG" I am guessing is the original un modified track.
Track Labled "27" I am guessing had low bass and mid bass cut.
Track Labled "43" I am guessing had the low bass and mid bass boosted.
Track Labled "79" I am guessing had the upper treble range boosted.
Other takers would be very interesting.
The test is now biased with your comments
, but I just listened to the four sound clips during a break at a conference I'm at, using my Dell laptop's built-in JBL speakers. The conference room was empty, and the doors closed, so little if any background noise.
I heard a slight, possibly placebo difference in the bass between the original and tracks 27 (had less bass) and 79 (had more mid and upper frequency), more of one between 43 (most bass) and the original. 43 and 27 were clearly different cuts as well IMO.
But at least three of the tracks sounded different from one another, in a LT five second between clips A/B using Windows Media Player, and the same volume setting on the laptop. I would not conclude these four clips were identical, and I played two different ones where I randomly picked one of the three non-original clips with my eyes closed, and correctly guessed it was one with less bass.
Not 100% scientific (in a perfect world, I'd have someone play the clips rather than me, picking them randomly), but my ears must be OK. Oh, and I'm 51
Maybe this is why I want to play with the Trinnov target curve capability
