My fave song to test Grados is Hurts So Good by John (Cougar) Mellenkamp. The growl and twang of the guitars really shine with Grados.

I was recently re-ripping my entire CD collection to FLAC & came across something I really hadn't listened to since college:

Blind Melon - Change

Sounded ridiculously good on my 225's.

Humm .. you guys need to buy some decent records!

The Alan Parsons Project - Tales of Mystery and Imagination .. killer lp

Or ... Hawkwind - Quark, Strangness and Charm - that 80's space rock sound.

Anything by Andy McKee or Antoine Dufour.

The grados make acoustic guitar shine reminiscent to the way the L3000 does, minus some of the intimacy and weight of the music. Still great by all means.

I've seen a bunch of Clapton mentions... I'm pretty sure that I remember hearing John Grado talk about Clapton being something he tunes his headphones to.

dayum I haven't been here in like 4-5 years and these kinds of tunes are still rockin the grado-heads... SOLID!!

 

Cheers and Happy Listening!!

 

SRV - Little Wing or Riviera Paradise.  No other headphone does SRV right (IMHO)

Eric Johnson - Cliffs of Dover

The Eagles Millenium Concert - AWESOME renditions of Hotel California, Easy peaceful feeling... and a BUNCH of their other classics, all well mastered

Diana Krall - Live in Paris for female vocals

Clapton Unplugged - The entire recording is GREAT with Grados

Van Halen I

 

 

 

 

 

Sometimes I'll pop in a DVD into the macbook and use

AC/DC Live at River Plate
