Im not sure about that, it seems like a lot of people say the 225s are a sweet spot in price vs performance in the grado lineup. I haven't tried many grados, but I believe it.

The 225's don't sound right to me without the bowls. The soundpicture gets fragmented, and what I gain in reduced high and mid peakiness I lose + in terms of loss of overall coherence.
I like them for a wide variety of music, particularly pop. I don't agree that they are the premier heavy metal headphone, as all heavy metal I have is WAY too trebly with them. Classical music is not good most of the time because of the high frequency push, it just destroys the sound picture. But jazz and pop really sound awesome with them.
