Recommendations for $60 public headphones?
Metallica was always my favorite group; Mustaine, my favorite metal player. He's actually an interesting guy.
You need a closed model for the noise isolation. If it were open, I'd say used Grados, no question.
But for closed, I don't know what to recommend at that price. This model http://www.head-fi.org/t/654946/tascam-th-02-headphones-waiting-to-be-discovered-now-appreciation-thread caught my attention, as did these http://www.head-fi.org/t/585356/the-takstar-technical-pro-gemini-greathon-thread. But you should ask on those thread how they sound for metal.
Maybe HA-S500, which is on ear, but I found the bass to be too much though I prefer a bass light sound. So ask about those too.
Don't buy a cheap pair of Audio Technicas. Having heard the more expensive ones (of the same line), I expect they don't have the treble needed to pick up guitar solos.
