I don’t know how else to put it. Some albums just sound better with headphones to me. Maybe I can’t afford the fine resolving systems needed or my dog snores (he does) or whatever the reason but throwing on headphones and a great album still makes me smile, a lot.
There are a few I recommend, but this one is a good start. It was also quad mixed if you are into that type of thing.
You all bring forward great recommendations, what suggestions do you have?
Cool. I’ll check that out!
Not for everyone, but the effects in Yosi Horikawa’s
Vapor are great fun with headphones:
This is a goto headphone album for me,

This is particularly true of binaural recordings. I don’t have too many, but all of them definitely sound better with headphones.

@DaveN I will have to take a proper look at these once I get home. Some I recognise but others will be a nice surprise.
Cheers for posting.

Anything country so no one else can hear it.
A pair of Focal Celestee headphones and Miles Davis’s Kind Of Blue (Blue in Green) is Is a Special Treat😎
Headphone are for when I can’t get to my music room.
This album blew my mind when i listened to it on my Beyerdynamic DT 1990 Pros. I later figured out he is a man of questionable character, but I’ll put that aside for the sound quality, haha.

Along with the DT 1770 Pros, two of the most underrated headphones available. Tremendous bang for the buck.
I haven’t heard the 1770s, but I agree! I am absolutely satisfied with them!
Some early Alva Noto was always nice on headphones back in the day:
Prototypes and Transform.
Tool - Chocolate Chip Trip
I appreciate the amazing stuff. A lot of new items for me.
That’s really the only Tool track that I regularly Skip, but I can imagine it would sound good on headphones.
I will add it to my list to try it out.
