So my trusty HD 555 cans just broke yesterday after years of abuse and having it accidentally fall on the floor and stuff. The right cup cracked and is now supported only by the wire running to the right earpiece but whatever.
So I've been doing some hunting and had a look at the head-fi over-ear open-type headphones. I've narrowed down my options to:
Sennheiser HD 558 (mod this to HD-598 quality)
Audio Technica ATH-AD700
However, I'm still confuzzled. My budget's around $180 USD or so. What I require from headphones is to have very good or excellent sound positioning for competitive games, great sound for music (most genres), good for movies etc. Now I know that what I'm asking might be impossible to find in my price range but what do you think?
