  1. Most of the posts in my thread here haven't exactly been serious posts that are in any way informative. More trolling than anything. Therefore relying on that as an answer is completely useless and so I decided to keep looking at the same time. Notice I didn't answer my own questions yet, I've merely narrowed down the search somewhat.
  2. So far, this is what I've found, but the quest has only begun since I now need to look for an equally good headphone amplifier. http://www.head-fi.org/t/634201/battle-of-the-flagships-58-headphones-compared-update-audeze-lcd-2-revision-2-6-4-13#user_EPILOGUE http://www.head-fi.org/t/715478/headphones-for-metal-music-ultimate-solution http://www.themasterswitch.com/best-headphone-amps-2014 (Grace m903 reference amp)
  3. What kind of speakers + amp would you recommend for metal as best, if I won't use headphones?
  4. Dear Headphone audiophiles, I want to buy the best headphones for listening to metal music. I recently purchased sE electronics The EGG speakers with amplifier and have concluded that they have way too much bass. I was disappointed when I placed a AKG K240 headphone in my Focusrite Forte usb soundcard and heard tons of details in my favorite records that I had not previously heard. I love hearing all the tiny details the artists intended us to hear. From what I have researched, any speakers/headphones that are fantastic for classical music will likely be great for metal as well (clear highs, good mids, little bass). Basically, I need headphones that make me hear everything you can possibly hear in the following albums listed below. I do not need something that 'forgives' bad recording quality. I want to hear everything the artist recorded. Do not limit your advice based on price, I'm flexible about this. Metal subgenres: folk, progressive, death, neoclassical, thrash, orchestral. Albums that I use to test quality: Angra - Temple of shadows Animals as leaders - The joy of motion Annihilator - Criteria for a black widow Arch enemy - Wages of sin Arch enemy - Doomsday machine Arcturus - The sham mirrors At the gates - Slaughter of the soul Behemoth - Demigod Cacophony - Go off! Carach angren - Lammendam Catamenia - Winternight tragedies Children of Bodom - Hatebreeder (reloaded) Children of Bodom - Follow the reaper (reloaded) Carcass - Swansong (remastered) Darkane - Rusted angel (remastered) Darkane - Insanity Death - Human (remastered 2011) Death - Individual thought patterns (remastered 2008) Death - Symbolic (remastered) Death - The sound of perseverance Decapitated - The negation Dimmu borgir - Puritanical euphoric misanthropia Dimmu borgir - Death cult armaggedon Dream Theater - Black clouds and silver linings Equilibrium - Erdentempel Freak kitchen - Move Gojira - The way of all flesh Gojira - L'enfant sauvage In flames - Colony Jason Becker - Perpetual burn Keep of kalessin - Armada Lamb of God - As the palaces burn (remastered) Lamb of God - Ashes of the wake Lost soul - Chaostream Marty Friedman - Dragon's kiss Marty Friedman - Scenes Marty Friedman - Introduction Marty Friedman - Inferno Megadeth - Rust in peace (remastered) Megadeth - Countdown to extinction (remastered) Meshuggah - Destroy erase improve (reloaded) Meshuggah - Nothing (2006 re-recorded) Moonsorrow - Voimasta ja kunniasta Necrophagist - Epitaph Neuraxis - Trilateral progression Nevermore - This Godless endeavor Nile - Annihilation of the wicked Old man's child - In defiance of existence Opeth - Blackwater park Opeth - Deliverance Opeth - Ghost reveries Pantera - Cowboys from hell (remastered) Pantera - Vulgar display of power (remastered) Pantera - Far beyond driven (remastered) Psycroptic - The scepter of the ancients Ram-zet - Escape Rhapsody of fire - Dawn of victory Scarve - Irradiant Septicflesh - Communion Slayer - Seasons in the abyss Stratovarius - Visions Stratovarius - Destiny Symphony X - V the new mythology suite Symphony X - The odyssey The faceless - Planetary duality The forsaken - Arts of desolation The haunted - Made me do it Tony MacAlpine - Maximum security Trivium - Shogun Unleashed - Hammer Battalion Vader - The art of war Wintersun - Time 1 Yngwie Malmsteen - Magnum opus Yngwie Malmsteen - Concerto suite in E flat minor op. 1 Yngwie Malmsteen - Facing the animal Yngwie Malmsteen - Attack!!
