True, i forgot to mention, i have the HD 558's modded. Not the 598's.. i can't see the differences being night and day though when we're talking about sound imaging.. they can't be that far apart?
Now don't get me wrong, the modded 558's have pretty good sound imaging, i can kinda sorta pin point, but i've heard better through a $60 pair of turtle beach's. The 558 owns everything else though, the turtle beach's are possibly the worst headphones you could ever put on for music listening. Perhaps it's the angled drivers that throw me off?
I forgot to mention, i'm also on the xbox.. PC players probably have a much better sound setup.. hence maybe they really are good for gaming. I don't tend to think so though.. i like a little more lower frequency when i'm gaming.. that's personal preference though.
