I will use these for gaming/music/movie.

Sounds good or not ?
The DT770 is going to be better in almost all respects over the M50. I would take it in a heart beat over the M50, even at that price.
However, that said, since this is for home and the M50 is going to stay, you might as well explore an open air headphone. The DT990 would be an excellent way to go (DT990 PRO). Maybe pick up a Xonar DG or DGX (PCI-E if needed), or maybe go ahead and get the Fiio E10 (I would get the E10 honestly, more powerful, and just nicer in general to have it discreet and able to use it on any machine, since it's USB). The DT990 is bassy, big sound stage, bright treble. Great for your needs, assuming you're ok with bright treble. If you need something with less bright treble, maybe consider the Ultrasone HFI 2400.
