[Harp-L] How much is Enough?

It seems the human ear can not detect a pitch difference until it is more than 3 cents off....I remember learning that in my college acoustic science class.

It is my opinion that I (and perhaps others?) will accept a pitch that is within a max of 10 cents sharp or flat as being relatively in tune.  More than that is audible as a different pitch.  

I’m sure that may vary with context, of course.
