still havent found the perfect can for metal. still blows my mind that people recommend grado's for metal. bass is to weak and the hi's will make your brains leak out of your nostrils. seriously... what cans under $1000 are great for metal? like... strong kick drum with authority. a fun headphone. thanx

If only you looked a bit harder, you would've stumbled into this long, long discussion on the topic...

Headphones for Metal Music-Ultimate Solution

that thread is all over the place. according to the op's graph chart... the fostex th600's are the best for metal but not one post mentions the headphones. weird...

And discontinued. Not an option even I wanted to try them. Grados hurt my skull. Do not like

 
325s/325is/325es/whatever.
 
If you were a real metalhead your head would hurt from headbanging not Grados anyway.

Have you tried the lcd2? Nice mids and a solid low end.

Sennheiser hd600 is also the best jack of all trades value around imo. Could try one of those.

No I haven't. I wonder which is a more fun headphone between the fostex 600 or the lcd2?

 
Fun is typically referred to as like an authoritative bass punch and sparkle up in the treble.  I do not have experience with the fostex 600, but I do with the previous Denon models they are similar too.  If the fostex 600 is anything like the denon d2000/5000/7000 then I would call it more fun than the lcd2.
