It is unlikely that it is the ears that are trained. It is more likely

can do with low notes that the rest of us can't.
Possibly, musicians with their highly trained ears are simply capable of hearing
more than non-musicians?
Do you really think they can reliably make finer pitch discriminations?
I understand that they think they can, but is it true of the population
of trained musicians? And if it is true, is it a big difference?
If so, someone should try and demonstrate just how much better they are.
