    So if anybody can help, when i'm listening to a pair of headphones how can i listen and tell what sounds that you can hear at different frequencies. if its possible. I'm just starting in the audiophile life style, i enjoy listening to music, i can tell how vocals, bass, treble, sound. But i want to know how i can listen to every detail in most frequencies without looking at a graph. If it is possible.

    What you are describing will come to you as your experience with different sound signatures/equipments broaden. Some knowledge on the different terms would help to describe the signature/differences you perceive in an accurate manner. 
    We(Head-fi) have quite a few concise and interesting articles for fresh audio enthusiasts like yourself.
