Basic Intro: I've been playing guitar for many, many years, but I've finally started to get into music production. I'm absolutely terrible (you have to start somewhere, right?), and I just got my first pair of studio monitor headphones in the Audio-Technica ATH-M50. I didn't want to spend too much, and I thought the ATH-M50s were a good way to go.
My main question has nothing to do with the Audio-Technicas though. My IEMs recently broke, and I was looking for a new pair to pick up. Previously, I had the Bose IE2, and I really liked the sound, but after hearing people bash Bose, I figured I'd try something new, so I purchased the Etymotic HF3 after doing a fair bit of research. They arrived in the mail yesterday, and after listening to them last night and this morning, I realized that I really don't like the sound. I have a wide vareity of stuff that I listen to, but I tend to stick to varying genres of metal (The Ocean, Fleshgod Apocalypse, Mastodon, BTBAM, Sikth, Revocation, Gojira, Periphery) and post rock (God Is An Astronaut, Red Sparowes, Explosions In The Sky).
The Etymotic HF3s really seemed to lack some of the low-end that is present in a fair bit of the music I listen to. I'm still really new to headphones, and I'm kinda lost, so I figured this would be a good place to check. I really appreciate any help at all.
