Ape-eared is a term coined by Heinrich Heinz (aka the Audio Guru) that refers to a hearing affliction in which a person is unable to properly process sounds and detect the nuances of quality in sound transmissions ranging from recorded music to radio station broadcasts. Those who are ape-eared frequently own supbpar stereo equipment and low-end, "mud market" CDs. While the condition is curable, it requires extensive tutelage by a seasoned audio expert and the process tends to be extremely expensive.
