A good binaural recording on spotify would be amber rubarth: sessions from the 17th ward.  just skip to the 3rd track to give you an idea.  Listen to a normal song first though and get in the zone and have your volume at a decent level.  These recordings play very well at higher volumes.

An amazingly recorded binaural album worth checking out would be Ottmar Liebert - Up Close. It's playable on Spotify I believe. The HE-400's holographic soundstage does the album wonders. My jaw was literally on the floor the first time I played through it.

Speaking of albums that make the HE-400 shine, I recommend Neil Young's "Live at Massey Hall" from 1971 to any of you who don't own it already. Feels like I'm there when I listen with the HE-400. This recording really shows how dynamic and engaging the HE-400 can be.

 

I'll put a link to the Amazon listing below, but it's readily available over torrents and whatnot.

I only have my MDR-7550 with me at the moment (excellent soundstage for an IEM), hooked up to my SG3 and Fiio E18 but WOW is correct. Amazing! Before today, I didn't know binaural recordings even existed.

I found this too:

Listen to the "One Man Rumba"... There's someone to your right

 Looks great with the Beyer headband.

 

I have a HE-400 too, and I have a really small head, ¿does the beyer headband fit properly?

 

Thanks for the idea, these is what i'm looking for.

 

Regards from Spain!

I have a small-medium head and the pads used to touch the top of my ears at times and be a little annoying. I feel the Beyer headband added enough material to eliminate this completely. Perfect ear height for me now.

@dracojcs, another HE400 headband mod would be the sennheiser HD600 headband + velcro: http://www.head-fi.org/t/635480/simple-but-successful-mod-on-he-400s

 

@Mdraluck23, is that the 4 button headband cushion? I've tried a 6 button headband cushion & I found it does not fit :(
