I'd even say just get the LCD-2s if you're a big metal fan. What I find engaging about the 007s and 009s is how when listening to a concert you can hear the waves of sound reverberation off the walls of the hall and pick out the individual instruments.
I almost think we need to have "Music preferences" as prominently or more so than "Location" on all our posts.
But the Sr-009s are so much better than the LCD-2s...
Haha tool is actually one of the bands i used to demo the Sr-009s, i listened to Aenima for like 30 minutes, and i loved every second of it. That was probably the most polite music i listened to though, i started taking Tool with me as well, since its about as audiophile as metal records get, but is so much less intense, so its less of a torture test for the equipment.
