post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 

Can someone provide a list of different tracks that will attack all areas ie..  Vocals, Sub Bass, Mid Bass, Midrange, Treble.

 

You know, The tracks that you would use to do some critical listening. 

 

Like tracks that's focused on the Piano, Guitar, Drums, Female Vocals for the highs,  A track that has good focus on the midrange, tracks that's focused on treble.

Thanks for the info though.

The comments should give you some ideas. I always recommend Beck's album 'Sea Change' which is included in the list. I think it's a very good recording with a lot going on that should work well to compare headphones. Plus, it's just a fine record.

Only Album you need to test headphones or IEMS is Steely Dan-Aja

Even if not a fan of their music, it has everything you need for a testing. Hell the Album got a Grammy for Best Engineering.

Mushroom Hunting on my list is a Jazz track. I'd suggest the Cowboy Bebop soundtracks in general. Lots of great Jazz there.

same here, thanks. Always looking for great albums

One album I love to listen to with headphones is Keith Jarrett's The Köln Concert, a solo piano concert that tests pretty much full range. Well recorded, though the piano used itself was just so-so, but the emotion on that album is very tangible. One of my favorite hp albums.

OP, if you're still looking, Patricia Barber's Modern Cool is in my mind well worth checking out. Probably one of the best recorded jazz albums I've ever heard. It has a great sense of space and direction, includes several kinds of drums, cymbals, guitars and of course female vocal. Great music, too.
