Sennheiser HD 555, KOSS PRO4AAAT, Denon AH-D1000/1001 or Audio-Technica ATH-M50?

Hello all audiophilles. I'm looking for the best sounding product from all of these headphones mentioned in the title name. Price of Sennheiser HD 555 and Koss PRO4AAAT is the same.  Denon AH-D1000/1001 and Audio Technika M50 cost ~25$ more. Bought headphone will be used with Asus Essence ST audio card with integrated HP AMP in it. So, I need the best sounding HP from this list. It'd be good that HP will be comfortable, durable and not obsolete in gaming. Thanks.

Of those headphones, the HD555 is the only one that I see routinely associated with gaming.

 

Are you limited to only buying the HD555, PRO4AAAT, D1001, or M50?

The Denon AH-D1001's comfort is insanely good, and it will do for gaming and music just as well as it has a very fun and relatively balanced sound sig. You can also get the Creative Aurvana Live, essentially the same headphone but with a much lower price tag - below $100 I believe.

In my location Aurvana Live sells for the same price as HD 555, so I think it's not worth the money? I can make some search through other HP availability, just give me some names:)

If you're in the US Newegg has the Aurvana Live for $63 shipped.

I'm located in Europe. Any other possible options?

They're on ebay for 70 pounds and free shipping, don't really know how good a deal that is though.

The 555s shouldn't be too bad for your purposes.

All I can say from first hand experience is stay away from the Koss.

the koss will need a monster amp and is not very comfortable.

 

the m50 is my pick- ihave heard all those on your list/

What about Sennheiser HD 595 and IE7? I can get them cheaper than all HP mentioned above.

For gaming, within your budget, the Audiotechnica's ATH-AD700 are the way to go!
