Ah, but proof has already been shown that differences exist. You are the one who is posting all over these fora that they don't exist.
Perhaps to you those differences don't matter, but they do exist, and posting otherwise is an act of deliberate falsehood.
As to their level of significance, that is relative, just like human hearing is relative, and just like testing/listening environments are relative. It is relative between listeners, it is relative between different equipment and setups, it is relative between different rooms, etc. When you talk about "controlled conditions" in this case you are referring to tests that were done by a few slackers and arm-chair engineers from these fora and neighboring fora in the privacy of their own homes. Not tests done in specially prepared anechoic or quasi-anechoic chambers under extremely strict environmental conditions. This would mean the tests are much less
subtle than you are implying.
Now if you want to argue how little the differences matter to you, that is a completely different issue, but do everyone a favor, stop lying. There are much better ways for you to get the attention you crave than by trying to be controversial...
