I actually don't have a set of songs that I use. I put my iPod on shuffle, and listen. If any problems arise, I note them (EG, any harshness in highs, not enough lows, etc). If anything makes me go wow, I note those too. Additionally I listen for a set of properties (texture, detail, separation, impact, sparkle, etc) as I do this as well and note them. I do this for a few hours minimum (for really good IEMs, like these, I normally do it for 12+ hours on and off to ensure). I then write my audio section based on that info.
This is the way I see it, readers of the review will not listen to just the 6 songs you have listed, they'll listen to their entire collection, why base a review off of 6 songs? Instead, I'd rather base it on the collection as a whole.
