I love my modded Q701 for progressive rock and progressive metal. Stuff like Opeth, Symphony X, Porcupine Tree, Haken, Ayreon, Threshold, Epica, Fates Warning, Leprous, Jethro Tull and so on. I love a big soundstage no matter what the genre is. Most closed headphones just sound congested to me. After the mod there is plenty of bass and plenty of impact and they are still fast enough for fast paced metal. They have all the detail one would ever want as long as they are on a resolving DAC and amp, and of course playing high bit rate files.
