Anything by passion pit out of a decent source. There's so much detail in his recordings. If you want something more quiet, unforgettable by nat king cole studio version is an outstanding recording and with a good set up his voice sounds godly(the good old days of audio engineering). There's also toshiko akiyoshi-kyoto complex, if you haven't listened to her before and you have a good set-up you really really must give her a listen I find all her recordings released on album were well recorded.

I would say that most music that is mainstreamed recorded is not a very good test of your headphones.  The methods used during mastering are designed to make you take notice but not really make you go ooh aww. Some musicians still employ the older techniques but those are hard to find the mainstream.  I would go into further detail but honestly I would not do it justice.  I do love live albums.  Fleet Foxes, Peter Adams, Grizzly Bear, Air, Air France, The Antlers, The Black Keys and early Modest Mouse.

If you like it, it's great to test your headphones on. After all most people use headphones to listen to music that they like.

I have a set list of songs I use to test new headphones.


Bass Test (quality and extension): Double Monk

Midrange grain test: Battery Size D

Midrange bloom Test: Golden Orb

Treble extension test: Afterglow

Soundstage and imaging test: Please Mister Sensei

Detail test: Baba Yetu, Capsula

PRaT test: Hallucid

Attack test: Flight of the Wounded Bumblebee

Decay test: Faze

 

All of these songs have a part, instrument, section, etc that emphasizes the listed aspects of the sound so I can analyze them.

 

Once I've listened to all of the songs, I listen to one more: Technocracy. That song is so ridiculously dense that it makes it extremely difficult to render properly. If a headphone can't pull it off, it's not quite up to snuff with my standards.
