Hey guys just wondering which one of these is the better option for listening to death metal. The DT770 80 OHM or the SR125i?The DT770 are slightly more is it worth the extra? Also is there anything else you guys would reccomend in this price range? Would basiclly be listening to death metal and be doing some gaming.
SR125i vs DT770 80 Ohm for Death metal
Gear mentioned in this thread:
DT770 80 Ohm version need extra amplification to show their magic, while as far as I know, those Grados don't.
DT770 80 Ohm have powerful (emphasized) bass, and recessed midrange in comparison with most Grados, it depends on what you are looking for. DT770 provide some isolation while Grados don't.
If you want something like Grado (Open-On Ear headphones) but with more bass and less upper midrange you should consider Yamaha HPH-200.
The right pick depends on how you like to hear your music, some people prefer to focus on electric guitars (Grados), while others prefer a slightly emphasized mid-bass that make the sound fuller and warmer.
Only Sr225i comes to mind. It should have slightly softer treble.

The SR225i can be had for 50$ more. I haven't actually heard the 225i (very contented with my 125i!), but it seems that the general consensus is that the 225i is the "sweet spot" of Grado headphones.As a metalhead, I must say that you can't go wrong with Grado for metal (though I haven't listened to the DT770 so it's best if you audition both first). \m/
