      I think its the tactile aspect of bass that's so rewarding.

        Absolutly true Stringreen. Sounds are not just perceived through the ears. Our skin is a nice membrane with which to catch sound.

          Vladimir Lamm says we listen with our whole body, not just the ears.

            Agreed. But there has to be something more primitive, fight or flight response, involved. For instance, my cats hate low frequencies.

            Speaking of cats, my Maine Coon often listens to music with me (well, it seems mostly in a sleep or purr mode) and doesn't have problems with low frequencies. Guess she's bass tolerant. 😉Even Holst's Saturn and Uranus at high volume is perfectly OK with her.
