Need opinions: KG550 vs Sennheiser Momentum vs HD-598 vs UE6000 vs Custom One Pro vs DT 770 vs MDR-1R

Thread Starter 

Note: I'm posting this here because no one gave a reply on the help & recommendation forums. 

 

I came into the audio world by buying the monoprice 8323. Now I'm looking to upgrade. Also, I'm looking into getting an E7 to use as a amp/dac. I will use it on my computer as well as the occasional on the go.

 

Features: Over the ear, closed (or not much leakage), Noise Isolation, *Bonus* Detactable cord.

 

Budget: Would like to keep it around $200 or under (if  there's a good deal I can go higher)

 

Uses: Music, Gaming

 

Priority:

 

1) The overall sound (I listen to many genres, mainly, edm, hip-hop, pop, electro, instrumentals)

 

2) Comfort ( I will wear them for long hours)

 

3) Soundstage (I need it for gaming, mainly FPS)

 

From lurking I have almost bought many different headphones, but (as I'm sure you all know) the choices are many. I've mainly been looking at the AKG550, Sennheiser Momentum, HD-598, UE6000, Custom One Pro, DT 770, MDR-1R.

 

Any advice or recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

Of you list, I own the AKG K550s, HD558, DT770 (80 & 250).

You might consider getting the HD558 headphones for gaming & computer use and getting JVC HA-S500 (or HA-S400) for on the go.

The HA-S500/S400 are folding on-ear closed headphones, sound nice and compact (fold) for easier traveling.

 

Is the "computer" a desktop, with on-board audio or a laptop?
