Well for the price, the Koss KSC75 headphones certaintly wowed me.
Also, the Koss Spark Plugs also wowed me on how bad headphones can sound.

A lesser known indie band that sounds great on good headphones is Califone. All of their albums are available on emusic, and all of their stuff gets great reviews by publications like Pitchfork. I can't recommend them enough. Sort of like a cross between old-time folk and blues and modern rock and electronica.

Also, I recommended this on a different thread, but if you haven't heard Broken Social Scene's self-titled album (which came out a couple years ago), you will be blown away. I guess it would be categorized as alternative rock, but there's elements of electronic music, and even some strings and horns on a few songs. I don't know how many members there are in that band, but I believe it's more than 10, and the music is just incredibly rich and complex. There's also multiple vocalists, some male, some female, and even a rapper on one track. And almost every song is full of beautiful sonic details.

Unusual CD I got recently, Archipelago, a trio of bassoon, accordion, and percussion. Some tracks have amazing bass. I never knew an accordion could play so low. Can really rattle my ears even at low volume.

Jim O'Rourke - Eureka

Total magic outta my AD900 and iAudio

Another wow moment had recently: Nina Simone - Don't Smoke in Bed (off finest hour). I was floored by the vocals. well, seated, at least. Though someone did a bad job recording her piano on that one.
