Depends on how you like your sound to sound !

 

I would also reccomend Grado 325

and Beyerdynamic DT 880

 

Including the AKG K545 you have 3 very different sounding headphones to look at

 

Perhaps all999 can describe the AKG's?

 

But the Grado's are great if you prefer a treble/clear/punchy sound to your audio - they put you right there on the stage with the band

 

The 880's are warm/comfortable but quite magical in the way they present all the instruments in the soundstage - to me it feels like im in the studio control room listening to the band play live

They replied confirming that my order will ship on April 9th or 10th. Can't wait!


 

Welcome to Head-Fi! Sorry about your wallet! biggrin.gif

DT880 & Grado 325 arent closed hp!

 

My recommendations: akg k545 or soundmagic hp100.

For metal music, Grado all the way IMO. Grado SR-325i can be had for $295, well under your $400 budget.
