SOE: Headphones album? Or play it loud?
« on: November 30, 2017, 03:37:05 PM »
I've been listening to the album entirely on headphones. There is some really nice production on the album and this lends itself to the headgear

However, i'm thinking this might be an album better appreciated at high volume, giving your speakers a run for their money.

Thoughts?

No way to listen to any U2 music, especially SOE, is wrong.  :D

Both. It really fills the room nicely...

I haven't listened to it on headphones yet myself, but looking forward to...
I put it on my surround just now and it sounds amazing

Sounds great on headphones and my 5.1, but it kicks ass in the car. Nice bass.
I saw Gloria live. Even if I never see the band live again, at least I saw Gloria live. :)

Turn it up loud, captain!

Preferably on a beach!

We'd all love to see that, Edge.

the chorus to LIBTAITW deserves full tilt. Red flag day is a loud one. And the atmosphere on LIAWHL deserves full volume too

If your neighbours aren't complaining, you're not playing it loud enough!

It sounds great on anything ... Hell this album would sound great if you heard it through tin cans and string.

Played it loud on my first listen after purchasing the cd. Had the surround sound going, the subwoofer up..

I think it was too loud. Ha.
First/initial listens would be better on headphones... once used to it and the songs are famililar can you let the house shake.

Headphones, a lot of details to dig. But it works in a busy house as well. Sometimes the attention of the people in the living room are paying attention to it.
