New to the headphone scene, and I am looking for some advice on a good pair of headphones for metal/rock. I've done a lot of research and I definitely want something closed as I will be using these a lot in public (or else I would seriously consider the Grados). Something with some good sharp bass punch, not the lingering vibrating bass like a lot of rap has, good treble so you can hear the clear vocals and crack of the guitar. A lot of headphones or ear buds just don't seem to bring out rock and metal like they should, too flat.
I listen to a lot of 80's rock/metal (Pantera, Metallica, Slayer, Anthrax, Megadeth, Overkill, Van Halen, Motley Crue, some glam rock) and also more recent metal like Killswitch Engage, Lamb of God, Shadows Fall. I've narrowed it down to the pairs below. I would love any feedback or advice anyone can give, thank again!
Also, if any of these you recommend, you think a portable amp would also help PLEASE tell me your ideas. I will be using these with my iPhone 5s mostly.
Sennheiser Momentums (the over the ear model) - I have seem people also recommend the HD25 model, but I'm just not a fan of the design
Beyerdynamic DT-770 PRO 80ohms (seems like the consensus online is the 80ohms are the best and don't need an amp)
V-Moda Crossfade M-80 - Someone online said these are kind of a dark horse for good sounding headphones for metal
Ultrasone HFI-780 - I've heard some metal fans love these, and some said they did not go well with metal
