What bands do you test your heaphones/IEMs with?

This could be a favorite band type thing, but just list the bands you play as the control for sound-checking and comparing your gear. 

For me:

Kamelot; great variety of sounds.

Hopsin; test for hip-hop stuff

Insomnium; lots of high notes for a metal band

The music for Arby n' the Chief season 6; Just some simple techno.

 

Also, what are you favorite EQ settings? Mine are classical and electronic.

Tool, Pink Floyd, Dream Theater

Mostly because I listened to certain songs so many times that it's easy to notice any changes with different gear.

Although there is a special test disc for headphones (from Head-Fi) and also several different "special" discs, I use my favourite label ECM because that kind of music I listen to mostly.

Kaempfert - happy trumpet
Some well recorded female vocals

Daft Punk - EDM

Black Eyed Peas - EDM again

Michael Jackson - lots of detail, great for testing (or just downright dancing, lol)

Queen - Bohemian Rhapsody fits in with a lot of genres, so great for a quick all-round tester

Yiruma - Solo Piano

Issac Shepard - Also Solo Piano
