    Is there any audible difference between домашняя (feminine) and домашнее (neuter)? If there is, my ears sure can't detect it!

    In standard language and in normal speed speech, there is no difference between домашняя, домашнее and домашние. However this difference is noticeable in the slow and distinct speech.

    Often poets and singers enunciate the "е" a lot more, but in normal speech there is no difference.

    It seems to be the 567967th thread on the topic. So far, the answers from Moscow were standard, so the standard reaction from St. Petersburg follows as well: yes, there is a difference between the three forms, «домашняя/домашнее/домашние», unless in fast or indistinct speech.
