Radiohead - Kid A
Masterfully recorded, great way to test the exchanging between frequencys on your phone

Red Hot Chili Peppers - Blood Sugur Sex Magik
As said before, great recording

Pink Floyd - Dark Side of the Moon
MSFL MMMM

The Beatles - Abbey Road
The best recorded beatles album, in one of the greatest studios in the world

Jimi Hendrix - Are You experianced
So badly recorded, the way I can tell how good the phones are is by how easaly I can pick out the flaws.


So Much more, but you only asked for 5.

Mindstate - Pete Philly and Perquisite

Seriously?? Listening to that album on headphones makes me scream. What a 'hot' album, and I don't mean 'hot' in a positive manner. Not HAWT, HOTT, or WHOA!

DJ Tiësto - In Search of Sunrise 5: Los Angeles

I listen to it so much it's crazy.

This Rush - Moving Pictures 24-bit 96kHz vinyl rip I downloaded sounds absolutely amazing.

The Alan Parsons Project - Eye in the Sky and I, Robot

Lastly I thought I'd mention this one:
Al di Meola, Paco de Lucia, John McLaughlin - Friday Night in San Francisco. The best acoustic guitar cd i've ever heard (which isn't saying much though )

Fleetwood Mac....Rumors
The Who...Quadraphinia
Marillion...Script For A Jester's Tear
Marillion...Misplaced Childhood
Pink Floyd...Any

Fleetwood Mac....in the beginning of "The Chain" you know you have a great setup when you can understand what is said...let me know what it is!

Head-Fiers,

good posts! I find the following five CDs put potential headphones to the test:

Bryan Ferry - Slave to Love/The Best of the Ballads
Dire Straits - Money For Nothing (Remastered)
Katie Melua - Piece by Piece
Alison Krauss - Forget About It
Tom Cochrane & Red Rider - The Symphony Sessions (live)

to avoid: anything produced by Ron Nevison

:-( just received the Goo Goo Dolls - Let Love In for Xmas - great songs horribly compressed. Why are they allowed to do this?????

Cheers.
