I'm comparing the concepts atm and I will be commenting on the comparison.
The allegations are that the frequencies of 432 are more volumous in resonation.
One pseudo test I can verify is that a guy played both on a guitar (amped, clean) and my crappy headphones rattled more when he played the 432 setup.
This is not a very good test, however, as I don't know the control.
For all I know, he turned up the volume between the two setups.
I haven't tuned my classical guitar in test against both, but I will be.
At the moment, I'm more comparing the frequency measures themselves.

Indeed, 432 is blanketed with a ton of bullshit myth.
What I found so far is that 432 is a mythical setting that is consequence of the actual setting alternative of middle C (3rd octave) at ~256, which would consequently make A4 ~430, but no one apparently tuned to the A in this mode; they tuned to the C.
The reason was mathematics.
Apparently this is more mathematically clean.
According to good ol wiki, in the "256" mode, all C's are powers of 2.
And indeed, if I flip around to 256 pure to C3, then I see what they mean.
