They come in 32, 250 and 600 Ohm versions so you won't have to buy a new soundcard/amp if you don't want to.
If you're not into that and only going to be using them for gaming, I would recommend a pair of Sennheisers. I own a few of their audiophile headphones and they sell gaming headsets that are open design and seem like they would sound just as good.
I have been taking a close look at the DT 990s and they seem nice. Today (after my previous post) I read about differences between open and closed headphones so I can definitely say I'm looking for an open style.
Though after hours of searching (I kind of got myself lost for a while) I think the MDR-MA900's actually seem pretty promising and do what I need. They look like they hit the mark for comfort, gaming, immersion, and music so I may end up going with these.
My initial intentions were to get the "best headphones for fps gaming" but it seems I would be losing out in some area's by doing that.
