I've been loving my relatively huge trance collection, along with all of my eurohouse/dance/etc, as well as the IDM and whatnot on my HD 580's all week (and my D2000's for the better part of a year)
honestly, some music is more "sophisticated", from a mathematical or otherwise subjective perspective, either it was mastered with more dynamic range, or its a very "rare" or "good" recording, something along those lines, that can "show off" a system, however that isn't neccisarily to say that all music "less than" this standard is "worse than" this standard
notice the massive amount of " "'s used there? getting the point?
for a much more subjective example and to talk on the subject of headphones billed as "ideal for the engineer recording classical music" (Sennheiser HD 580, based on Sennheiser's marketing litearture), listening to a track that is "more dynamic", say a piano solo, or even better, an organ solo, you can pick up on more details, if the track was recorded and mastered properly (i.e: the details were there to begin with), compared to something "less dynamic" (or "less textured" as this thread is going with), like say, Orbital's Halcyon & On & On, you won't pick up on TONS of intimate new details, but the overall listening experience is equally good (assuming you like Orbital and organ performances equally), its just different content reaching your ears, but its being done at the (subjectively) best quality possible, so if the recording was dumpy in the first place, you're going to get dumpy back, at the best quality possible, if the recording was good, you're going to get good, at the best quality possible
as far as what genre is the "best" to listen to, where is your sanctuary?
