Just use your new headphones and head to HDtracks.com, they have previews on all albums, so you can browse all the albums and test your headphones that way. Their previews are decent quality. Anything you like, buy.

I found Blue Collar by Bachman-Turner Overdrive to sound really good on high-end cans (specifically sennheiser HD600 and Bose QC 15). Has some deep lows and a nice guitar solo thrown in to cover the highs.post #14 of 334/19/13 at 12:31pm
