I thought this thread would be useful to those who want to test the quality of their headphones or ear plugs. It will be a good reference thread if used correctly. Heres what i would like to see... I want to know what tracks you have heard, where you have thought 'wow, that sounds awsome, and a good test piece for my headphones'. A track where you can pin point every single instrument and error. It doesnt even have to be a track you particulary like, but just one that has... 1. Great highs, mids and bass, 2. Clear instruments, especially background ones, 3. Clear voice, 4. Clear silent parts, 5. The wow factor, The conditions i would like to set are... 1. Only ONE post per user. (That way we wont get loads of single posts showing 1 or 2 songs) If you think of additional songs, update your original post. 2. Accessible music only. (Pointless listing a song that was on a B side to a single 32 years ago by an unknown artist, that they only made 6 of). 3. No slagging off other peoples recommendations. (This is a thread to show the quality of earphones, not showing peoples music tastes). 4. List what ever has impressed you quality wise, even if its a bit embaressing. 5. If you want, put a little explanation why you picked that song. 6. List what you are listening to it through. 7. List them as Artist and Title. Right, i will start, in no order.... Iphone 3g, with Audio-technica CMK70 earplugs, and A900 headhones. 1. Elton John, Rocket man. I listened to this last night, having bought the best of, and was VERY impressed in the quality of the accoustics, it is crystal clear, and you can hear every instrument and symbol being played. Probably one of the best i have heard quality wise to test your earphones. 2. Chris Rea, Road to hell part 1. Off the Road to hell CD, its just the sounds of being sat in a car with rain coming down, but you can hear every little detail, and comes in with thumping bass. 3. Maroon 5, Secret. Off the CD Songs about Jane. Not particulary a track i like, but the guitar at the start is excellent, and the bass cutting in is great too, as is the clear voice. Only the first minute or 2. 4 Ronan Keaton and Lulu, We've got tonight Very clear instruments, and exceptional bass and wood percussion when Lulu cuts in. 5. Sting, English man in New York Great clear saxaphone, tamborine, Hi-hat and triangle. 6. Cat Stevens, father and son Great accoustics, and clear voice and bass. 7. Eric Clapton, Layla (unplugged version) Taken from the MTV unplugged CD, accoustics sound great, females voices are nice and clear, hihat sound crystal too. Great live song. Let me stress, it ISN'T a list of your favourite music, but tracks that sound like reference material.
