Hello fellow Head-Fi'ers, new to this site. I've been looking and reading around for the last 3-4 days to step up from my current cheap headphones. About 80% of the music I'm listening to is Metal (mostly thrash, heavy, symphonic and progressive) and the rest is rock. As a beginning bassist as well, I'm looking for headphones that aren't too bass heavy, but I'd like to hear the bass lines in various songs and albums as clear as possible, while not leaving aside the rest completely. The budget is around 100-150$. They'll be used mostly with my Sansa Fuze player (probably gonna be replaced soon) going to and from work, sometimes plugged to my rig. So far the 2 most recommended cans I've seen are the AD700 and M50S, both are around the same price, though both also got some mixed reviews. Obviously I'm not looking for the best possible sound for my first decent cans, so any tips and recommendations are welcome. Also if any extra info is needed to make the right decision, I'll gladly provide it.
Thanks in advance.
