Best music to demo headphones

    What are some good music tunes to fully immerse yourself into music and really show off your cans? I don't care what genre of music, but just looking for something to come back and say "wow that was amazing". Right now, I'm using Beyer DT-990 600ohm powered by an STX. Maybe some upbeat jazz? Any input would be helpful.

    Live recordings. One time I was listening to my alphabetically arranged music, Joe Walsh's 'Life's Been Good' then followed by Joey Ramone's 'What A Wonderful World' live, when Joey said 'and its a wonderful world', I thought it was somebody behind me so I turned around.

    Prepare for out of body experience.

    As a veteran cosmic rocker, may I suggest The Moody Blues, Days of Future Past.:ksc75smile:
