Whenever i introduce a noob to the world of DACs ,Openbacks, HiFi audio, i always ask them for a song which they either know by heart all the drops , highs ,; something special to them. And i proceed to show them the differences line out from a phone/ laptop , line out to DAC , digital out to DAC .. Each progression leads to a higher jump of eyebrows. It's something special to see. More often than naught , they always say " I had never heard that before " or " was that always there" .

That's an excellent method to highlight each piece's benefit too!
This is such a great way to do it.
I did something like this to explain to my friend the wonders of soundstage with open back headphones.
His amazement when he listened to virtual barbershop with his lame convenience store sony earphones and compared it to my shp9500s. I have ruined his world on computers before and now headphones..I have enlightened him!
