I don't think the hd598 would be good for metal as they don't have a lot of bass that will make metal music fun.  Based off some reviews, I'm sure the V-modas will impress you.
You could try some Beyerdynamic DT880/DT990.  The DT990s have good bass and "sparkly" treble.
 
Hope this helps.

sr60 with bowl pads and be done with it. I've owned all the grado's up to RS1 and the Alessandro's, and currently own the MS2 and Magnum v4, but for the price it's a no brainer. I still use the sr60.

And some modified vented ports for good measure.

If you can go up to $250, why are the Grado SR-225 not on the list? That'd be my suggestion anyways. Or the Ultrasone HFI-2400. Very different presentations, so pick the one that will better suit you and your tastes.


I agree. The SR225i are excellent for metal.

I have not heard the HFI-2400, so I cannot compare them. I have the Ultrasone HFI-780, and greatly prefer the SR225i over the 780s for all kinds of rock (metal included).
