I'm not looking to spend $400 to the cent, as much as I am looking for best bang for my buck considering the equipment I am currently using(ex. a $200 suggestion is fine). I have a Cowon D3(similar to a J3 in sound quality) amped through a ibasso t3. To give a benchmark, I use monster turbine pro coppers ATM, so I would like these new headphones to somewhat sound better. I also need to stress the vitality of the sound compatibility with metal. It is important that I can listen to extreme metal genres such as deathcore and death metal but also listen to lighter styles of metal and hard rock without sacrificing too much in the sound quality department. Thanks in advance!
Edit: Through the power of research, I am getting a strong vibe that Grado is the way to go. In you opinion is this an accurate statement?
