Songs that make your headphone WOOOOOW!!! - Page 196

post #2926 of 3602
Classical music sounds pretty extraordinary with my HD800s on a good set-up. I would say that 19th century classical sounds particularly great, due to the very large soundstage ushered in by Beethoven. Listening to Mahler, Wagner, Brahms, Tchaikovsky, Dvorak, and others sound so great when you really need that giant soundstage.

I honestly really didn't like LBH. I thought it was her weakest work.

Really?! I suppose art is, by definition, subjective, but I thought the more modern, pop-oriented direction was a welcome change. I also love 11 out of the 12 songs on there (and still like "Say Goodbye" - just find the simplistic, staccato drums and bass a bit distracting and annoying).

It's still good...it just did nothing for me.

Man, Keith Jarrett, Gary Peacock, Jack DeJohnette trio "My Foolish Heart."  This whole album is just great.  A great recording of an incredible group playing incredible music.

I saw the title of this thread, and all I thought was, "Shouldn't it be the other way around?"

Hahaha, if it was the other way around, it would just be a thread about the most forgiving headphones (HD 650 anyone?) and not a thread about brilliantly mastered and composed works of art that that sound amazing even using iBuds. wink.gif

My point is just that the headphone should serve the music, and that the music should not primarily serve to make the headphone sound as good as possible. The aim is to get to the core of the music. Maybe they're just two sides of the same coin - a well-recorded, well-mastered track is in the service of the music rather than the equipment. I don't think that's arguable.

Steely Dan Aja vinyl press from 1977, played on a 1983 turntable into a Pioneer Spec1/Spec2 rack system into a pair of full MarkL modded D2000.......the drum solos gave me chills.

On my AKG k702's used with a Lyr and Bifrost, Kenji Kawai's "Making of a Cyborg" from the 1995 movie "Ghost in the Shell" sounds beautiful.
