I'll read up on all of these, thanks
hmmm...I've listened to all of these at least briefly, and what stood out to me in all cases was that they all excelled in the soundstage department. Good for gaming, but I assume you would want some significant bass for your music preferences. (most would agree MA900, K550, and AD900 are pretty bass light).
How about the Philips X1? At $299, they're significantly more expensive than the others, but they are getting some good reviews around here. From what I have read (I haven't heard them) they have a slight V shape signature (emphasis on bass and treble) and a nice soundstage. Probably the best looking headphone of the bunch, if you care about that kind of thing.
