    This channel is too good. This guy is hilarious. Plus it is because of him that I got myself an ibasso DX300 DAP and some proper IEMS to listen to music. Always been in audio but his recommendations and advice got me more into the hobby. Dave? Danny? Whatever your real name is please know your channel has brought me so much joy since I first dicovered you last year. Keep on keeping on.

    The crunchy beat in the second half of Oirectine (Boards of Canada) is my go-to headphone test. I am not an audiophile though. I tend to find cheap crappy headphones just choke on it and it sounds like a buzz

    I just got the Sony WH-1000XM4, and as someone who's never owned good quality headphones, songs that I listened to even countless times before really hit different. Never had ANC headphones either and that definitely took some getting used to as well

    "I can't believe how many people are using nicer sets of headphones all because of me" I've had my herder sixhundos by sen for the last decade and a half, but your channel finally convinced me to buy an amp/dac for it. Got my new Monolith and balanced cable in today, and it's like a whole new experience, it's wild~

    There are two songs I test /everything/ with: "Scene One: Regression" from "Metropolis Part 2" by Dream Theater. The ticking bounces around and it gives you a good idea of the sound stage of headphones. The other one is "Truth" from "Transcendence" by Devin Townsend Project. It's just a massive wall of sound, but there are clear vocals mixed in. Gives a good sense of how good the mids are, and the seperation.
