Headphones for Heavy Metal / Movie Scores?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

In the next couple of months, I might be able to upgrade my setup.  Of course, I end up listening to a lot of Heavy Metal and Movie Soundtracks / Scores.  Was thinking about picking up a pair of Sennheiser HD 518s since they tend to be on sale a lot on Amazon.  Would those be good for this kind of music?

Hi,

 

You should consider Yamaha HPH-200. They sound really good with metal and movies. They are warm and detailed with punchy bass. You can read about them here:

Best Luck!

Save up and go straight to the HD600. Some of the music I listen to has the genres you mentioned put together.

 

Well OK Divine Conspiracy and Design Your Universe might be the better example as far as movie score-like classical arrangements are concerned

What kind of amp is that?

That looks like either a Meier Audio Corda Aria or Cantate 2

Yep billybob_jcv is right, it's a Cantate.2 - it's built into a Shanling chassis which Meier dropped due to their cost. It looked great next to these when I tried them out at a Shanling dealer here:
