Audeze LCD Headphone suggestion for heavy metal music?

I mostly listen to heavy metal. What is the best between Audeze LCD-2, LCD-2 Classic, LCD-3 for listening to heavy metal? Or is there another headphone that I should consider? Also, I currently have modded Monoprice M1060's. Will it be worth spending the money to upgrade to one of the Audezes i've mentioned above? I am using EqualizerAPO so I think I can get it sounding pretty close to an LCD-2. Should I still buy one of the LCDs? I'm using a Schiit Jotunheim amp/DAC. Thanks!

I hate to be "that guy," but the reality of the situation is that you need to try out the headphones for yourself. If there is a local hifi store near you, planning a visit is within your best interests (bring your Jot as well; the stores I have been to have always been accommodating and understanding of auditioning headphones on my own gear). That being said, I personally....don't like the Monoprice M1060 and would prefer almost any other planar magnetic. My ears tell me the Audeze LCD series is a huge step up (but only if they are post-2016; they struggled with QC before this and it was possible to get a trash-tier headphone).
