yes, he would be great help, i need people who has actually heard them to tell me their opinions also!!!
Hi there. I owned the K1000 for several years and I have the same musical taste as you, for the most part. I also own the Grado 325. Well to be blunt about it, I didnt enjoy the K1000 that much. You can tell it is a sophisticated unit and is extremely well made, but for hard electric music it just didnt click for me. I sold them about 2 months ago to another guy on this forum.
For me the drawback of the K1000 was always that the open design didnt (and cannot) reinforce bass sound waves, like an enclosed or vented headphone can. You *hear* the original bass notes just fine with the K1k, but then they vanish instantly into the air... not what I wanted to hear with hard rock.
But lastly, the K1k is a very very good headphone! You might be very happy with it. Its certainly accurate and precise. Nobody will argue that. If you get a great deal then try them! Matched with the right amp they will probably sound better than what I was using anyway (VTL mono-block amps.)
Hope that helped a little.
