Hello fellow Head-Fiers
I would be interested to read about your choice of songs/tracks when it comes to critical listening....when testing new gear, reviewing, or simply listening critically :)
What are the songs/tracks you listen to in order to check out capabilities of an headphone...what are you listening to and paying attention to for specific attributes in a song..
Maybe there is even a specific time in a song you listen again and again for checking this special characteristic.
I'm asking because I want to improve my understanding. In order to listen to the songs you're listening to, and trying to understand and differentiate the different characteristics in sound. I'm a beginner and although the WIKI helped a bit, there is still a lot of understanding missing. And this hole will only be filled by listening, not by reading.
For bass texture I listen to Song "XXX" by Artist "XXX". In time 2:35 is a moment where the texture is shining at its best...
For soundstage ...
Bass Extention, Transparency, detail, texture...there are a lot more attributes
I always read about these attributes, but sometimes it's just hard to understand what is meant.
So by pointing to a specific song, and maybe also to a specific part of a song, and what you are paying attention to, I think this would help me and many other to better understand reviews, and maybe also our gear.
I know that there's a HeadFi "Open your Ears" Disc, but this is still not very precise.
thank a lot :)
