Fretting Hand Tone

There was a tread on TB about low action vs high action and how it effects tone. I've noticed I like it when I play a note while plucking it at the same time [in other words I come down on the fret while I pluck] instead of already holding down a string when I pluck. In order to do the former the action needs to be a little higher so that the string don't smack the fretboard or pick ups.

This is generally frowned upon because it's harder on the player's hands, so I'm currently debating whether or it's worth it. [I mean, hey, this could all be hearsay!]
