I have perfect hearing and enough sense to now ignore this post as others have suggested.

The room and interaction with other components all impact a speakers performance. So buying without auditioning in your home is tough. If that’s your point I agree. Personally I don’t buy brand new speakers because I will modify them to suit me. And I treat the room to suit me as well. Is that your point? Many people treat their rooms too -so yes they are optimizing their speakers/room to their ears -as you suggest. If that’s not your point then what is? Are you suggesting something? Btw- It’s a hobby. If people are happy exploring equipment and speakers that’s great. If Others think it’s a waste of money why would they care?
At the moment I’m running some slightly tweeked Boston Acoustics Vr40s. I’ve had JBLs,B&Ws, and KEFs. Granted there are way costlier speakers. All of which I sold for more than I paid for these and to me the vr-40s sound better. To each their own if you like your speakers who cares how much the cost or what brand they are. I wanna enjoy the music not show people how much money I can spend.
@facten Its true that i dont currently have a system. Why did you feel the need to check my old posts?
I am not proposing a solution or claiming that i have the solution.
Perhaps a custom made or DIY speaker would be one possibility. Or modifying an existing speaker.
But not owning a system is just as bad as spending thousands of dollars on a speaker that does not really meet your requirements.
A few people here suggest that they feel no need to upgrade and that theyve found something satisfying. Hogwash.
If you are a garden variety music listener, then a garden variety commercial speaker will suit you perfectly.
Thats what high end speakers actually are. Theyre mass produced garden variety glorified speakers with gloss finish to make you think youre getting your moneys worth. How would a speaker designer know what kind of sound quality you or I want?
