So ultimately it comes down to sitting in the same room at the same time listening to the same music - then see how much people actually disagree with the sound.
Ive never quite thought of it like this, but yes. What goes on between the ear and the brain to cause the interpretation of sound is extremely important, yet not mentioned much. But unless the other variables are the same, "comparing notes" on a particular piece of gear it is often an apples/oranges comparison as evidenced by your examples. I hear you, loud and clear. :)
