Primary use will be for gaming and music...I enjoy accuracy in games, and like to hear quiet footsteps, etc...
I've looked mostly at Beyerdynamic 880 and Sennheiser 600, but am not set on these two in particular. Any suggestion is welcome.
I do have one question. I'm worried the O2 wouldn't power a pair of 600ohm well enough...would a pair of 250ohm perform better on this setup?
Budget is $400.
I'm powering 600ohm headphones off the O2 just fine, with my equalizer set to -10db. With overhead to spare. Simply press the high-gain button on your O2 and you're good to go. Clean and no noise floor while using it.
The O2 can power virtually anything quite well, short of the HE-6.
But the real question is, why get high impedance over low impedance? There's no real answer to that, because the amplifier dictates the work. I would get 250ohm given the option so that you can use them with virtually anything.
At your budget:
I would primarily go for the HE-400.
