quality-of-headphones-spotify

If you are listening to music through a pair of headphones jacked into your computer, you’re not experiencing music to the fullest. Want truly superb audio? Get yourself a record player and a high-end setup. That said, due to convenience, most of us still listen the former way. But that doesn’t mean you can’t optimize the experience. This curated Spotify playlist is designed to check the quality of the headphones you’re using so you can make sure those cans are doing the best they can in a bad situation. The music spans genres, with Aphex Twin seguing into Pink Floyd, Elvis Costello giving way to Bela Fleck, and CeeLo ushering you into a track from Rage Against the Machine. Hell, even if you don’t want to see what your cans are picking up, this is a playlist to add to the great Spotify playlists you have saved.
