More of a correlation rather than cause effect, but as the title says, has your musical taste been influenced by your headphones?
Personally, I felt my musical taste changed from electronic to more towards jazz/acoustic and classical, as I upgraded my music chain. With HD650, I prefer to listen more of real instruments than electronic sounds. Same with Shure SE425.
The dynamics of live instruments made them much more interesting and full of life. Now I'm looking out for those sections of the songs specifically. The raspiness in the singer's voice, the quiver, and the dynamic range seems to be more important now.
I cannot say the same for electronic sounds. They sound better, clearer, but somehow, still the same as before.
So I guess my musical preferences have changed (for the better).
Whats your experience been like?
