You won't blow the headphones. If so, you have already blown your ears prior to that...
My suggestion is still sr-009 or hd800. You must know one thing, though. You should be ready to dismiss a lot of the music you have if you want to get the most out of dem headphones... I mean high quality music for high quality headphones, right? Crap in -> crap out as we say here at head-fi... So you might end up finding your badly produced low bit-rate music to sound even worse...
Sr-009 will probably be clearly superior in it's bass performance. I'm fairly positive both of them will be about equally good for gaming... hd800 is said to have better imaging than sr-009, but sr-009 have a superior sound stage. So they are probably equally good or somehting. Gl & hf. Be sure to report back or I'll haunt you in your nightmares
I doubt any other person have commented on how they like the sr-009 for gaming.. I vote for sound hack/ mass murder with both headphones
