Your ears are definitely better than your eyesI’m a measurements guy and today for the first time I listened “timbre” differences between speakers that perform similar in measurements.
The measurements suggest a significant difference in tonality.
The axis frequency responses are 1-2dB apart, but almost more importantly, listening window, sound power (and ER) differ significantly in the range 1-4kHz and above 7kHz.
All these curves (LW, SP, ER) represent "averages" from single measurements, so deviations of 1-2dB (over wider frequency ranges) are expected to show up as audible tonality differences.
(Unfortunately, there were only different measurement sources for the comparison)
Definitely!listening tests are also significant and you should pick the one that is good for you and not just for measurements.
