So Sine wave is better than pink noise?
I think these tests must be done in a controlled environment aka no aircon, no fan etc.
The tester probably cannot be in the room.
I think probably it’s really difficult to carry out these tests and thus cable companies never really perform the tests to verify their claims as it could backfire on them when a customer or some audio expert perform the test and contradicts theirs.
I would say controlled but realistic environment. It's like testing car tires under lab conditions vs real world road conditions. Both are valuable data.

And of course cable companies don't want to do those tests, makes the selling so much harder for what. They're targeting people who have money and either don't know any better, don't care, and/or whom believe their ears can capture small audio differences better than microphones anyway
