I totally realize that, but my whole point was if that the q701 were at least good(not great) for the kind of music I like then that would have been like a 2 for 1. However right now I am really looking for headphone strictly for music.

a lot of metal is just poorly mixed. the only AKG headphone I have enjoyed is probably the K550. all the rest I have tried do not sound good with metal. AKG headphones are good with classical, jazz, opera, acoustic, etc.

I read some good things about the Mr. Speakers Mad Dog but I haven't listened to them.
