I want to clarify some things:
I don't want a grado simply because it lacks some of the things I'm looking for. I want a headphone which is good for rock and metal, but has a big soundstage and a decent amount of bass, a grado lacks these things. I won't be using it just for rock/metal, I will be using it for a couple of other genres as well such as pop. I will also be using these for gaming so I will need big soundstage and a decent amount of bass impact for explosions and stuff. I heard the HE-400 is excellent for metal and rock, however I also heard that the HD-650 scales incredibly well with amping, so with a good amp it can be better than the HE400. People say that the Hd650 gets rid of it's veil with a good setup. I'm willing to buy a good setup for my headphones (Lyr+Bifrost or something even better), so considering that, which will be better for rock and metal? I'm also looking for good mids, I absolutely love a good mid range. Which one do you guys recommend? The only meatl band I listen to is metallica and the rock bands I listen to are nirvana, ACDC, audioslave, green day, etc.
