I am another person that really digs the 1R. I have purchased many of the recent portable headphones and I'd have to say it's probably my favorite of them all. The 1R does more things right then the rest. I've been listening to whatever metal I have in my collection since your post and I'd have to say it keeps up perfectly. Not sure who you listen to but I've thrown Children of Bodom, All That Remains, As I Lay Dying and some old school stuff thats more of my speed like Metallica, Rage Against The Machine, Pantera and so on and these headphones keep up with the speed metal without a hitch and Rage just pounds in your face. I don't hear the drums overtaking the vocals, guitars screaming over everything else. It's a good and balanced headphone with enough emphasis in all regions to keep up with most music. I definitely get into my music when I have these on. Especially the metal music I'm listening to currently which I haven't tried before.
