Greetings Head Fi,
The title, while maybe humorous, is not a joke. I really do want to buy headphones that work best for one song, and that song is To Glory by Two Steps From Hell.
I will describe the song as "epic classical" in that it has booming drums and powerful, driving strings and accompaniment that traverses the frequency spectrum from the deepest lows to the highest highs.
It even has an element of synth bass....
This track really has everything that I want in music.
But in order to hear it fully, with great separation and articulation, I am not sure what kind of cans I'd need.
My considerations thus far have been:
I already own:
Beats Pro (more lol)
Westone 3 IEMs (looking for open-back for this purposes though...)
Budget: ~1000 but willing to consider more if the sound quality is improved significantly.
Thank you so much,
I love your passion for this song, I can't wait for you to pull the trigger and report back on how awesome your setup sounds.
John Coltrane Live at the Village Vanguard is that "song/album" for me. :)
