Now Playing - Headphone Edition
« on: July 13, 2020, 04:16:42 PM »
So we have "now playing" or similar threads for vinyl, reel-to-reel, jazz, whatever ... but not for headphones.  Until now that is.

Use this thread to show, tell and discuss what you are feeding your ears with.  I'll go first with a couple of favourites ...

Hans Zimmer is great. Have a listen to Steve Jablonsky - My Name Is Lincoln.

I'm listening to MJ now. I know it's not everyone's cup of tea, but I'm sure we can agree that his music is well mastered. Always surrounded himself by the best in the business. Not to dilute this thread, but check out his drummer (i.e. human metronome): https://youtu.be/k8XzStMiA90

The 6XX's aren't bad, but no headphone I own currently holds a candle to my old M1060's (for RTJ, I mean).
