Thanks...will give a listen
will give this a listen also, even though I am not much a fan
IME, regardless of the genre of music, if its a good recording it will sound good with the HD800. Transparency is the key here - nothing added, nothing taken away. It just so happens that Classical, modern Jazz, Acoustic music is generally much better produced. Or produced with good hi-fi in mind.
But great Rock and Electronic recordings will sound fab too, theres no reason why they shouldn't? Unless you prefer extra colour added into the mix. I love a bit of good Ambient music with the HD800 myself.. (on top of my classical and jazz that is ;)
I have been working my way through my whole freakin library....which contains tons of rock and blues......I have been loving everything , as long as it has been a good recording.
I have never really been a fan of a big sound stage...but this is just the shiz.....just incredible.
