Well maybe the title of this post is a bit of a stretch, but I just picked these up and have to express my complete satisfaction.  It’s probably been sometime since I actually sat down and clearly listened to an entire album or a movie for that matter with headphones.

(Rolling Stones Let it Bleed (1969) Abkco Audio CD Digitally Remastered) The arrangements are part acoustic, part electric, and really gives you the feeling of sitting in the studio with the band.  The more edgy electric rock and blues-rock numbers sound excellent, with a high fidelity mix that brings out so much more detail than the old, murky, CD releases.

(Alien (1979) Blu-ray) I was really blown away how quiet and surreal the surround soundtrack is.  There is an underlying eeriness about it. There are various sounds of wind howling, screeching, thumping, and monotonous alarms clanging though out the film. I was surprised to hear a soundtrack make such an impact, when the sounds are often faint and barely audible except in certain turning points of the film.

These Koss QZ-99 noise reduction stereo headphones feature a passive noise reduction system that comfortably isolates the listener from ambient sounds.  With a frequency response of 40-20,000 Hz. these headphones deliver outstanding clarity and definition.  A volume control on ear cup, stereo/mono switch and an 8 foot coiled cord give these high quality headphones a groovy retro look. 

Reference system : Panasonic Viera 50″ Class TC-P50C2 Series Plasma, Marantz SR4300 AV Surround Receiver, Marantz BD7003 Blu-ray DVD Player.
