        Yeah... it's a good one. Have you listened to Macy Gray's Stripped (also a Chesky binaural)?

        Will definitely give it a try, thanks! I’ve been using Chesky’s Ultimate Heaphone Demo album to test different gears for a while and found the album to scale extremely well with upgrades.

      I thought drums on HE4XX were legit. Then LCD-2C arrived and by direct comparison, the HE-4XX drums sound like fart now.

      HE-4XX is legit. After all this time I can finally listen to Green Day again.

        "eager to perform". I know that isn't a euphemism.

        Well, the cello part is definitely authentic, seriously. God, near field real instrument...

      Gumby feels like an iPhone X upgrade to my music... without the notch.

        I think they would do equally well in a drop test...

        I thought they fixed the zero crossing notch? If not, well, I would still #embraceTheNotch

        Drop tests are also on my mind when I made the mental comparison haha. I’ll make sure I get a case for gumby.

        I'll be honest: I did the same the first time I got to demo one. Given how ears are shaped, placing the curved front on backwards is just more intuitive.

        Even if that is the case, if the Sennheiser had anything official to do with Dior for that commercial(?), you would think somebody would have said something.

      On Mac, iTunes streaming with "sound enhancer" turned ON makes it sound exactly like Spotify. wtf Spotify?

        I originally thought that the audible difference was because of the formats. Now I think it’s because Spotify has a secret tuning that can’t be turned off...

        I feel that Spotify’s tuning sounds warmer at first, but there’s a lost of transients compared to iTunes.

        People with cheap headphones do not care. Pump up the bass, rich midrange and some highs are enough. They spend hundreds on a smart phone/device but maybe 20 Dollars on ear buds. So hey.
