Best Ultrasone all around?
Gear mentioned in this thread:
A good step up from the XB500 would be the HFI-580, they have emphasized bass with more quality than the XB500 but more clarity, overall. Alternatively, the HFI-780 are more balanced and refined than the HFI-580, with slightly less bass (still have quite the bass presence).
They handle gaming quite nicely, both immersive and competitive gaming, but they do perform immersive gaming better.
Better Ultrasones are more expensive, with the next step being the open HFI-2400, or alternatively the closed Pro 750.
I find the HFI-580 to be better headphones than them, so with the HFI-780 being more balanced and refined than the HFI-580, they are indeed a better option.
Do keep in mind that you'll have less bass but still enough bass to sate your bass needs, except it'll now be of much better quality, with the rest of the frequency range being more detailed as well.
