I'm looking for a headphone primarily for electronic music listening. I will be using them at home, so I want them to be open or at least semi-open. I know that electronic music is best with closed cans, but I will also be listening to other genres like heavy metal and rock , plus I never owned an open can before so I'm quite curious to listen to one. So far, a few headphones have caught my attention:
Denon D5000/D7000: This one is said to have tons of bass and sub-bass, so it seems like a good choice.
Fostex TH900: This one is said to be made by the same guys who made the denons (fostex), so people say it's an improvement in every way. It's really expensive though, so I'm only getting it if it's really worth it.
HE400: I'm interested in this one since many people say it performs really well for electronic, and others saying "seriously, these were made for electronic"
Beyer DT990: This is said to be an open can with a closed cans bass, this caught me interest.
Sony SA5000: This one doesn't have that much bass, but people say it's excellent for electronic since it's extremely fast.
So, which one out of all of these would be the best choice for electronic music?
I would also like to point out that I didn't include the LCD-2/LCD-3 because comfort is a big factor to me, and these are said to be really heavy with a huge clamping force.
EDIT: Actually, I want a headphone that is good for both electronic and heavy metal.
