Wide soundstage is usually reserved for headphones like AD700, K701, and HD555/595 while nice clean bass is better on closed cans. If your going off your laptop then I'd say go pick up a Creative X-Fi Go over at amazon for $30 and save up for an amp of some kind. Ifou want good clean bass then the closest thing I've heard to that were Sony XB500, I've heard the XB700's were superior though. or good punchy bass but almost no soundstage try out a SR60i/80i those are known for their punchy bass driven sound with good mids and highs aswell.

I just bought the HD-555 so i can't compare them to any other headphone now ;)

I can only compare them to my THX logitech set's and my headphone surpass them.

The headphone feels like dolby when playing modern warfare 2, and the sound in movies is so realistic... you hear sounds you have never heared before.

 

But now I'm still wondering... what kind of reciever and/or amp should i look for?   (i'm on a laptop and xbox/ps3 etc.)

Allready asked the question once in this thread but it got overlooked I think... mabey I should make a new topic about it! :P
