Madonna "Frozen" and "You'll See" (or any other song of pre "Music" Madonna) is what i can listen today using best headphones and amplifiers i have,
At the same time "Confession on a dancefloor" is a complete garbage, forgotten in year after release, Same for "Hard Candy"
And it doesn't concern only Madonna
Why would you buy good headphones to listen to pop, thats like getting a sports car to go shopping.
it's wrong , pop music can be of high quality (or probably could)
For instance Lady Gaga "Bad Romance" , "Alejandro" demands more than i-pod + simple earphones.
But it's really hard to explain to people who never tried anything better than 20$ earphones which are sold together with i-pods
