one could say that i'm an allrounder, but can't deny the facts that i always be in love with distortion & double pedal evil_smiley.gif

 

currently using Hippo Biscuit + Hippo Cricri paired with V-Jays & Sony MH1a, hoping that i could get my hands on Shure SE215 SPE & Grado SR80i soon

I heard a lot of good reviews about the "anti-beats" motorizer headphones. They're mostly suited for Rock/Metal, look really good and are affordable

Just make sure you auditioned it first before you purchase it, Grado SR80i/SR60i in the other hand is really good if you dig for rock and metal music in terms of price and soundsignature

unfortunately i'm unable to auditioned because here where i live currently, ain't got that kind of store confused_face.gif 

the only way i can buy 'em is through online store from Jakarta.

 

No doubt about Grado, but SE215 SPE? from what i've seen on many signature, it's just too many Grado owner that own that IEM too. that's why i'm curious, ofc i do read the review and all, and kinda like the over the ear cables & the ability to recable easily

 

for example, post #24 by "That Person" also own SE215

Though I don't listen to as much metal now as I did years ago, I'll give my input on some cans that do really well with all metal subgenres. First off, the SR-225i that I had performed the best with the modded SR-80i following close behind. Then there's the DT 1350 that I currently have which do a bit worse than the Grado's as far as speed and dynamics are concerned, but have a much beefier bottom end. Last, but certainly not least, are my modded D1001. They do well with ANY genre, especially metal. I use them if I'm going to listen to some sludge, doom or stoner metal because their bass texturing is phenomenal.

 

Some of the music I'm talking about:

it makes me wonders more, if you guys said that Grado SR225i's & SR325i's are great, then what makes them Symphones Magnum driver blink.gif

Yes, the magnum's are my favourite for metal. Very smooth, 325 was far too aggressive for me. MS2 I also own and it's pretty great for metal too, more in your face without the extreme brightness of the 325.

I've got to say that I prefer Crimson II in every way. Musically yes, but the production is also so much better. 

 

Some songs that sound particularly amazing with my Pro 900s:

There's no doubt they're both classics but I'm sorry--I don't understand why someone would prefer the first Crimson! cool.gifL3000.gif
