Hey guys, I had previously owned a pair of Sennheiser HD558's that I had been using for gaming and music, and while they were great for gaming, they didn't provide the bass I wanted for my music. The music I listen to consists mostly of Rock, R&B, and some Rap. I am by no means a Basshead, but i don't want a pair of bass light Headphones like the Hd558's or Ad700's. So far I have been reccomended a pair of Ultrasone HFI-780's, Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro 80's, and Audio Technica A700's. These would be used with my Asus Xonar DG sound card. All suggestions are appriciated, Thanks.

I have the dt770s and the ultrasone hfi-780s. The beyers are wicked comfortable and the bass is really nice unless you crank the volume, then i notice some distortion. The ultrasones sound great, good all-rounders. I would probably go with them over the beyers unless you want to wear them all day and all night.
