Albums and Headphones that are killer combos

post #1 of 48
Thread Starter 
Yesterday, I was listening to OK Computer (CD Version) wearing my AKG K81djs, this was probably the best combo i have heard in quite some time IMHO, when you got to Subterranean Homesick Alien's intro , SMACK, just an amazing sound, this also coming from a non-modded AKG K81dj. But the entire album sounded so right through them.

I'd like to hear some other album/headphone combos, that you could sit the whole album through.

I find Nils Lofgren's "Acoustic Live" and the Stax Omega II to be an excellent combination.

Thievery Corporation - The Mirror Conspiracy (2000) w/ Sony MDR-7506

I may have limited experience with headphones, but I listen to lots of music and that was my fav combo

I think this is a great idea for a thread. I hope more people post in here.

That's a good combo, i dig that song "Black Boots" and it was interesting hearing his other songs from past too.

That's not bad for a limited experince, I started with some old creative buds heh. I was almost gonna get them but ended up getting the AKGs instead.

Just outta curiousity, would this combo also pertain to the rest of the Grado Line up? Btw dig the white stripes Get Behind Me Satan almost thought every1 here was against compression clipping to the point of not even listening it, But i guess i was wrong when i saw the GS 1000, although it is a redbook so there must be different mastering, so perhaps you dont get the clipping that plagues their regular cds. Think Im about to go see if WS's Elephant LP has a mate too, with all the Stripes talk.
