31.12.2017: Listen to my favorite album: «The Best Of The Art Of Noise (1992)». Title #2: Yebo (Mbaqanga Mix).
This is ideal for testing low-frequency playback! Also very good for testing is title #7: Legacy.
This is a synthesizer sound that is not objectively suitable for testing the sound quality of a music player – electronic music sounds good on every device. But I know this album inside and out, and I've heard it quite often on MP3 players (constant-quality coding, dynamic data rate up to 320 kbit / s).
For the objective test of the sound quality I have used musical titles with acoustic instruments and very often heard musicians.
Also the hearing test CD of the audio magazine HiFi was very helpful in the objective test of the acoustics.
The best high end music player – but not with the included Apple EarPods!
These have a too weak bass reproduction, but otherwise offer quite linear reproduction (writes the press).
Since I do not think of such gimmicks, I have not even unpacked these EarPods.
My Audio Test Equipment
As headphones I use the Sony MDR-EX90LP.
This in-ear headphones in studio monitor quality provides a fairly unadulterated playback.
