The title pretty much covers it. I listen predominantly to Metal and so far, my Radius DDM has been mucho fantastico, purely for the fact that it makes basically EVERYTHING sound nicer. I'd like something similar, but obviously not identical, so the comparative technical pedigree of the GR07/SE425 has attracted me. I've heard that they're both non-fatiguing and enjoyable to listen to, despite being neutral 'phones.
Anyway! Which set would you describe as being warmer and more bass-heavy? As I understand it, the Radius are pretty heavy on the bass, so I'm guessing that either set will initially seem thinner in that regard. Correct? I quite enjoy the bass levels of the DDM (I have it EQ'd with BBE through my Cowon J3), but I'm not opposed to a little less on that front. What I don't enjoy is over-sparkle and sibilance, as that can get quite grating with screechy guitar leads and crash cymbals. I also tend to listen to my music on the relatively loud side, most of the time.
I'm leaning more towards the GR07 for the time being, largely due to the fact that I can get it a good $100AUD cheaper than the SE425 and that I find it more aesthetically appealing.
Any advice would be much appreciated!
Thanks in advance .
