Of course the room in which the speaker is used has a huge effect too.
When you're sitting right in front of a loudspeaker you're in its near
field. That causes what you hear to be dominated by direct sound from
the loudspeaker. The loudspeaker(s) excites the room, but you're so
close to the loudspeaker that you don't hear the room response. Most
recording studios have a pair of high quality loudspeakers mounted on
top of the console for exactly that purpose. They also have a larger
pair that DOES excite the room.
I dread to think we'd require anechoic chambers for Hamshacks!
Anechoic chambers are TEST environments, they are lousy listening

A good audio setup will amaze you when you talk to another properly

All it takes for excellent receive sound quality is a decent pair of
headphones. The CM500, Sony MDR7506, and Etymotic Research ER4 are
excellent choices. There are other good choices, but these are well
established, widely available, and not expensive. All are VERY
comfortable for LOOONG contest weekends (although comfort in the ER4
depends on matching the ear piece to your ear).
