In late 2011, I made a thread asking for headphone recommendations here: http://www.head-fi.org/t/570633/headphones-for-gaming
I ended up going with the Sennheiser HD598, which was a great choice, I thoroughly enjoyed it. However, in August 2012 I accidentally broke them, and since then I've been using an inferior Sennheiser PC 360 headset. It's time to replace it.
In the 2011 thread I mentioned above, my primary use of the headphones was almost strictly gaming - that's changed a bit today, although I still do play a lot of games. I listen to a lot more music today compared to when I posted that thread, but music did still sound great through the HD598s and I wouldn't mind using them again at all. I also now use my headphones for binaural audio/meditation if that matters to you.
As a replacement, I've been considering re-purchasing the HD598 since it's great. But now that it's late 2013, are there any headphones you guys consider "better" or "spiritual successors" to it that are worth purchasing over a HD598 today? Thanks.
