If you are not careful, the last song could easily bring you to tears .

Acoustic guitar album. Sounds very very very good.

Bluetech: Sines & Singularities

If you really want to test and push your speakers/headphones though, definitely try Derango: Tumult ..... **** LOL

Kiln - Sunbox, This is probably of a different variety than most suggested on here, but it was very specifically produced for headphone listening. Thus it is not like anything you would hear live, but a completely different experience altogether.

As well as... Nils Lofgren - Acoustic Live.

I bought both of these off Amazon today... Excellent!

I bought this album from recommendations on this and other threads. I do not like it at all. It seems TOO electronic to me. I very much like This Binary Universe and some Amon Tobin, but I can't stand this.

Oh and another recommendations for fans of acoustic guitar:

Kelly Joe Phelps - Tunesmith Retrofit. AWESOME music, with great vocals and nice acoustic guitar. Awesome SQ as well.

Les Baxter - Tamboo

Tord Gustavsen Trio - Being There
Extremely well recorded, from deep contrabass to very delicate and subtle percussion. Great to show off what a good headphone can do.

x3 for Clapton Unplugged.

Múm: Yesterday was dramatic - Today is ok. It is textural music. This is really something special with headphones, and for those of you that have it I would recommend Crossfeed on this album as it really brings it to life.

x2 Tool - Lateralus

Nine Inch Nails - The fragile

for the heavier side of life...

Amon Amarth - With Oden On Our Side <- Probably the best mastered metal cd yet.

Donald Fagan - "Morph the Cat"

The one recording that sounds an order of magnitude better to me on headphones than speakers is Radiohead's "Kid A". I used to think that album was overrated until I listened to it on my headphone rig. A close second would be Broken Social Scene's "You Forgot It in People", which sounds terrific through my K340s.
