"Best" song for demonstrating the Grado sound...

post #1 of 73
Thread Starter 
So, whenever I want to show folks what makes a Grado sound so different from other phones, I always choose one or two songs. In particular:

"Master of Sparks", from 'Tres Hombres' - ZZ Top

The remaster of this disc is particularly good and sounds great regardless of amp! Heck, it sounds great straight out of my iPod! Regardless, it always sounds particularly good on my Grados.

So, what do you think? Name me another song that demonstrates that Grado sound.

For Better or for Worse!

^ he wasn't talking about it as a way to test headphones, but a way to demonstrate headphones to others. Someone who is not an audiophile wouldn't understand or enjoy anything off of a test CD like that.

Also, Aeon by Antony and the Johnsons.

I have always liked Rodrigo y Gabriela on Grados. The sound comes alive in ways that doesn't happen on many other headphones.

Second that suggestion. This along with a few others by Queen always tend to sneak onto my playlist when the Grados are on.

Spoon if they're younger, Dylan if they're older

EDIT

Specifically:

Spoon - Believing Is Art (from Girls Can Tell) - Amazing guitar and percussion on this one

Bob Dylan - Country Pie (from Nashville Skyline)
