Looking for recommendations for a new set of cans. For the last few months I've been using a pair of LCD-2 Closed Backs, and while I thoroughly enjoy for them for gaming and EDM, they have really disappointed me when it comes to guitar tracks - and I'm a huge metal head so this is really killing me. In the past I've had Denon (D2000s, D600s) and honestly I felt those were better in some ways. Looking for the next upgrade, something that has a good mid range while still has a great low end, for explosions in games, as well as fast response for double kick drums in metal. I know some non mainstream metal sounds crappy despite your source (especially with more revealing headphones) due to poor recordings, but even mainstream metal has disappointed me with this set of cans. I am using a Schiit Jotunheim Multibit DAC/amp combo run to my PC via USB. Price range, probably can go up to about $800, less would be even better if they satsify my needs.
