FRISSON TIME

Here’s Bach’s Air on the G String on an organ.

It is sublime.

Put on your best headphones and crank it. 1:05 is probably one of the most beautiful sounds I’ve ever heard. Chills forever.

Edit: OH JESUS, I JUST LISTENED TO THIS THING ON THE SENNHEISERS AND I HAVE ASCENDED

Guys. My freaking husband got me headphones. The headphones. The Sennheiser HD 600s. These are the ones.

I have wanted these headphones for quite some time, as everything I’d read about them basically said they’re the best “under $1000” headphones you could really get.

(He also got me an amp because these headphones have a high enough impedance that the amp is necessary for power.)

And dudes. They’re so good.

You can hear every sound so separately from everything else. Everything is clear and crisp. It’s going to take a long time for me to explore all my music with these headphones, but I’ll keep a list of favorites (songs that sound RIDICULOUSLY good with these) here:

  • Algorithm (Alternate Reality Version) – Muse
  • O Magnum Mysterium – Lauridsen
  • Hide and Seek (A Cappella Cover) – Dan Wright
  • Sunshine (Adagio in D Minor) – John Murphy

Edit: DUDES THAT FREAKING PLANET EARTH II SUITE SOUNDS OBSCENE. What is that word for when a song gives you tinglies? Frisson? This is frisson up the butt, yo.
