So, I'm going to look at headphones today, and for metal and rock this forum seems to give a lot of love to the HD 25-1 ii. Now, I WAS going to go with Grado Labs, but I was not very happy when I heard them and I realized how little they block out sound. They don't even try, and I plan to use these a lot when traveling. So, that has led my search of which led me to the HD 25-1 ii. My only question is, with a $300 budget, is there anything better than this in your opinions?
When you post, I would like to know:
1. What headphone is better.
2. Why it's better.
3. Why the HD 25-1 ii is worse.
and any added information you have.
