Good point, but when this has been done in the past, proponents of the tested product inevitably find fault with the implementation of the blind testing method. Perhaps a signal switch contaminates the result. Perhaps the listening materials were poorly chosen, too short, too long, or too unfamiliar. Perhaps the differences can only be heard on the subjects own system in their own room. Perhaps blind testing itself triggers the listener into an unnatural state. Blind tests convince very few who are not already convinced.While I have no doubt that this power cord does nothing to the sound, to be accurate you would have to do some double blind listening tests with a panel of people to show that it doesn't create an audible difference.......
a blind test isn't really necessary with junk like this thing, but I would really like to see such listening tests performed with cables, power conditioners, ethernet switches, etc.
