Lately I made Sony N3AP my choice for metal, hard rock, and all other genres btw.
They have fast detailed and forward bass, quick and controlled mids, detailed and non aggressive trebles.
For this reasons they sound good with all metal varieties, and all other music genres.
They are also forgiving with bad recordings.

Another high recommendation for the Pinnacle P1 (or the Massdrop PX because I believe it's the same driver). It was the first enthusiast IEM I picked up; superb bang for your buck.

I wouldn’t recommend them at all for rock and metal. I’m actually selling mine because they do it so poorly

And why do you say that? They have great instrument separation, good soundstage, and a wonderful W shape perfect for rock and metal. The IMR R1 is a great one as well.

I'm not a big fan for the fh5 and metal. Fh5 is bright and the high hats will annoy you at some point and once heard ... I'm taking the plunge and ordered a pair of dm6's

For me the issue with the FH5 for metal isn't so much the tuning as much as the soundstage, which is pretty small despite having excellent instrument separation. I prefer a wider soundstage for metal.

FLC 8N - adjust filters for your taste and voilà :)
Or any other hybrid IEM with dynamic driver for better bass.

That is very true. The sound stage is smaller compared to other multi BAs. Still I love their accuracy and balanced approach. Perfect for complicated rock songs especially with some foam or other good sealing tips. Brings out the fuller bass

Has someone tried the Campfire Solaris? And could compare with the Atlas?
Thanks in advance.

Apart from more generally being in love with them, the Klipsch x20i I recently bought has made me enjoy metal and hard rock all over again. Clean sound, you hear everything meant to be heard, and not too fatiguing.

For me the FH5 are my favorite IEMs for deathcore, metal and rock. I enjoy the warmth and musicality of the FH5 more than the clinical and neutral IEMs I've heard. The only thing I wish they had would be a larger soundstage as it sounds too much in your face.
