Try a Sony DR-Z7.

 

Or, more realistically, a Koss Pro/4AAA (vintage)

Actually, Shure SRH940s are Ok with metal, a bit harsh on some tracks (especially if not recorded/mastered well) but it does do sub-bass and mid-bass in a clean way. There's also the Beyer T5p's and a few others from $50 to $1000 (from AKG 240MKII to Hifiman HE500, to Ultrasone Signature Pro, etc.)

I don't doubt there are other headphones that people like for rock and metal. But I still bet they don’t sound like Grados. smily_headphones1.gif

The Sony DR-Z7's are pretty much impossible to find. And if you do find them, people want a kingdom's worth of riches for them.

Every single Z7 I've ever seen show up has gone for under $200, excluding the NOS pair I dropped $500 on. One of them even went for under $100. GREQ just got a pair for ~$120 or so.
