“I’ve been playing a lot of Peter Gabriel the past few weeks before having to commit these words to print. “Solsbury Hill” from the Special Edition of his 2011 album, New Blood (16/44.1 ALAC file ripped from CD, Real World 00038), has become a favorite, Gabriel’s husky baritone set against the arrangement for piano and orchestra. The Æons slightly emphasized the “blat” of the brass instruments, the space around the instruments, and the phlegmy edge to the voice; in general, voices sounded more natural through the LCD-Xes, with more weight to the lows but less top-octave air. I’ll stick with the Audezes, but the MrSpeakers Æons, too, are headphones I could live with.
