I never use YouTube audio to test my headphones. Blasphemy to even suggest it.
Now that we talked about that.
The Prodigy - Breathe (Bass response)
The Gathering - In Motion # 1 (Treble response)
Mortichnia - Carrion Proclamation (Treble response/Percussions, bonus points for pinpointing a recording flaw on the CD on the right channel)
- Exercises in Futility I-VI (Percussions. If the drums sound mushy, it's your end, not the drummer)
Tristania - A Sequel of Decay
Selbst - ...Of solitary Ramblings ( SOUNDSTAGE!)
Epica - The Phantom Agony (Classic instruments/Heavy Metal/Opera Vocal)
Electric Wizard - Funeralopolis (Heavily down-tuned and over-driven guitars, if headphones are crackling, don't buy)
These are great tracks to check your headphones for quality, if you are a Metalhead. Make sure to NOT use YouTube. At the very least 320kbps mp3 encoding. Better straight from the CD or vinyl.
