Songs that make your headphone WOOOOOW!!! - Page 180

post #2686 of 3618

I have three choices for this and can't figure out which sounds better:

 

Steve Earle-I Feel Alright-a superb recording by the master. Can't stop tapping my feet when I spin this disc.  The clarity is scary good...

 

Michael Jackson-Thriller-HD Tracks-176Khz/24 bit.  The clarity of this recording is shocking.  There are so many layers and complexity to these songs that I have never heard before this HD tracks version came out.  I'm not a huge fan, but some of his stuff is really great pop material, espeically when it sounds like this.  Anyone who thinks HD800's don't hit hard on the low end has a surprise coming.

 

Patricia Barber-Smash-My first real introduction to intimate Jazz.  This CD was just released.  It's just her, her piano and a 3 piece band.  Her voice just soars, and the stand-up bass.  You can hear the scratching and slapping of the strings on the wood fretboard like he is standing right next to you.  I can't get enough of this through my HD800's.

Most over on SH consider the MoFi set the holy grail for Beatles stuff. I've been considering paying the outrageous prices for the box set recently.

OK, I'm about to sound like my father (or perhaps, yours)---  for the first time.  Ready? 

 

I bought them at cost 25 years ago, as MoFi stopped production of records in the late 80's.  

 

In fact, I bought 2 copies of most.  One to open and play, one to leave sealed in its sleeve so that in 2030, I'd have a retirement plan.

Yeah. Sure wish I'd been alive to do that. ;)

 

Still...thinking about dropping a grand on one of those sets makes me cringe.

Mostly agree, I just find the funky synth in the right channel of Thriller (1:30 onwards) really out of place and that kinda ruins it for me. Always find myself concentrating on it, and I had never noticed it before I got my HD650s. Otherwise definitely one of my favorite HP albums.

Searched the thread n couldn't find anyone talking about the album explorations in space and time(found about it on head-fi youtube channel). Its a binaural project so offcourse has great soundstage(on my ie8;) but I dont think its great as a whole but a must for a great soundstage experience.

other music i like 

now we are free ==> gladiator ost

end of line        ==> tron ost

on we march    ==> social network ost

time                ==> inception ost

A dark knight   ==> The dark knight ost

why so serious==>  the dark knight ost

check batman begins ost if u don't like too much bass

if u like a single track then for sure check the whole ost of that movie as I usually don't listen to a single track on ost 

still developing my taste in music so these might  not be good enough for some :)

Sorry. Though I do find it difficult to believe you have not noticed it before bigsmile_face.gif At least that's how bad it sounds in my ears.

Make that two.... bow-bow-bow-bow bow wow woooooow~  basshead.gif


Edit: Thought I'd contribute to the thread.

Albums:
This Binary Universe - BT (My favourite and very first album, has a soft spot in my heart but I can't believe it isn't suggested more on Head-Fi.)
The Continents - Chick Corea (Think jazz and orchestral music don't mix? Think again!)
The Dark Side Of The Moon - Pink Floyd (Time and Money-literally as well as the respective songs-are particularly great at demoing headphones.)

Songs:
Long After You're Gone - Chris Jones (The first song I pick whenever I let someone demo my rig.)
Black Magic Woman - Santana (So warm, so sweet, you feel like you really are under the influence of a black magic woman.)
Hotel California [acoustic version] - Eagles ('nuff said.)
September - Earth, Wind & Fire (Greatest R&B song ever in my opinion.) 

And more.... will add more when I remember!

Well actually today was the first time I listened to that song with my HE-400s, previously when listening to that song I used the Senn IE80 which isn't too revealing.
