High frequency response

When a human can only listen between 20 to 20,000khz. Why do audiophiles have frequencies lower than 20 n higher than 20,000khz?

Sound starts doing very odd things at the higher and lower frequencies and create artifacts that bleed into the other frequencies, changing the way it actually sounds within the range of actually audible frequencies. Or so I've been led to believe, from bits and pieces of information gathered over the years. ('Audiophiles' are still a bit silly, and don't typically know the reasons behind why they buy what they buy.)

I think it’s probably fair to say that sound (specifically human perception of sound) does odd things all the way through, but we’re not so conscious of it in the middle because it’s compensated for by the surrounding frequencies. After all, even the mathematical notion of a frequency relies on something continuing to infinity in time, which is clearly never true. That’s just a term in a model which usefully approximates the physical world.

Biology. In good conditions, some humans can hear lower and higher frequencies than the 20 to 20kHz guidelines. Beyond frequency, some are very particular, analytical and discerning with what they listen to (a.k.a. audiophiles), while others just want a strong and simple beat that you can dance to.
