    I've got a hard drive that you could copy :wink: Almost 22 days of non-stop listening should keep you occupied [​IMG]

    Nah, just kidding. I'd say good test tracks on such an event are tracks that both have excellent recording/mastering and people are likely to know so they have a mental image to compare the headphone against.
     
    The recent re-issue of Led Zeppelin - Kashmir should tick both boxes and would be my primary choice
     
    If you want a list of songs (mix of genres, one per letter in the alphabet to restrain myself):
    AC/DC - Whole Lotta Rosie
    Bach (preferably the version by Gardener)- Matthäus-Passion, opening choir
    Caribou - All I Ever Need (less know but bloody amazing and good to test bass)
    Daft Punk - Give Life Back to Music
    Explosions in the Sky - Your Hand in Mine (it's hard to find well known post-rock)
    Florence and the Machine  - Dog Days Are Over
    Gorillaz - Clint Eastwood
    Hundred Waters - Murmurs (not well known, but one of my favourite test tracks)
    Iron Maiden - The Trooper (preferably the version from 'Live in Donington')
    Johnny Cash - Hurt
    Kanye West - Black Skinhead
    Louis Armstrong - Hello, Dolly
    Metellica -  Enter Sandman (S&M live version)
    Nightwish - Nemo
    Of Monsters and Men - Little Talks
    Pendulum - Watercolour (or witchcraft if you don't mind the intro)
    Queen - Bohemien Rapsody
    Radiohead - Everything in Its Right Place
    Simon and Garfunkel - The Sound of Silence
    Tom Odell - Another Love
    Used, The - The Bird and the Worm
    Volcano Choir - Seven Nation Army
    Wardruna - Helvegen (or, if you're not into pagan music: White Lies - E.S.T. )
    Xzibit - Papparazi (also the only artist I have that starts with an x :p)
    Yeah Yeah Yeahs - Skeleton
    Ziggy Marley - Love is my Religion
