More irons up for the Panasonic HTF600. These have been getting more play time than anything else in my collection. Great for music and gaming. They leak a lot of sound so in home use is best. Less than $30 too so you can get a good burger to go along with it for your birthday.
The CAL is one of the best bang for buck out there for under $100. I bring mine to and from work every day. They don't fold but they're not huge and are quite light. Very comfortable. Bass is satisfying and they sound good with any genre. I don't care for the Koss phones and the Shures are great but a bit bulky. I have had all three and I still have the CALs.
Fiio E10 would fit the bill as an amp/dac but then again you could run the COP out of your Mac directly and be fine.
+1 SRH840
Oh also I enjoy metal on my Shure SRH840 and AKG K240. Neutrality can be good for it.
Metal is a tough genre for headphones, speaking as a metalhead. There's the Grados of course pick your price point. With metal since honestly much of it is compressed and poorly mastered you're better off with something lower end. Grado SR80 is very good for metal and rock. Like mine a lot. I have not heard the SR325 but folks say they work well for metal...and they are made of metal! \m/
Yes gives new meaning to burning in har har.
I thought I liked them until I listened to Panasonic HTF600 with Senn HD485 pads. I am in love with a sub $30 headphone now. I think I just tried too hard to like the HD598. Headphones like preferences are fickle.
+1 CAL!
Beyer DT770 Pro Limited Edtion is $50 less and is a wonderful phone from comfy fit to a rich versatile sound. Highs are very detailed and clear, mids are present but not forward or recessed. Bass is similar to M50 but not boomy. Have not heard the 550 but the two are often compared.
