    I have the HD595 form Sennheiser, and my question is about songs well produced -every kind of music- that makes me fell that i buy a very good headphones [​IMG] whith clear mids and hights, and deep bass.

    complete albums too of course.

    i asked for that composition or album that you say to yourself wow, i like this sound as heaven [​IMG].

    I have a good amp and a good euipement -onkyo- this is no problem.

    Any suggestion, i like too orchestral influences and piano and violin compositions.

    Dido - Life for Rent

    She makes me melt. I think the songs and recording are great. I have to limit myself to listening so I don't burn out on it.

    Well, I don't really know with the HD595's.

    But there's one song that's risen to the ultimate top of songs that move me in my collection since I've been using my Shure E4's:

    Damien Rice - Eskimo (from the album 'O', which also includes the beautiful song 'Delicate')

    I can't explain it, you'll just have to listen.

    My favorite cans are the HD600 and any classical music brings out the best in them. The most impressive performance I've heard from these headphones was JS Bach's Brandenburg Concerto No. 5, performed by Trevor Pinnock and the English Concert. Bach's music has incredible fugal texture, but this is often hard to hear except in live performance. The 600s really distinguish the contrapuntal melodies and let you appreciate their interplay and complexity. Absolutely wonderful! [​IMG] Try out any recordings of classical music that interest you, I'm sure you'll appreciate it a lot through your good equipment.

    EDIT: made it less verbose

    Anything. But here's some examples:

    --"Awake" by Dream Theater
    --Liquid Tension Experiment
    --"Four Chords and Several Years Ago" by Huey Lewis and The News
    --any Blues Brothers recordings
    --The large amount of classic rock available: basically any album by Kansas, The Who, Led Zeppelin, Queen, to name a few, and also:
    --"The Last Waltz" by The Band
    --And for something classical, as I listen to organ music more and more and hear more organs I'm realizing my Grados are really good at it. Take a listen to "Great Organ Works" by Virgil Fox. Older recording for sure, but the organ is amazing. "Encores" is much better in terms of quality.
