Looking for a good pair of on-ear headphones for under 200 dollars USD.

Hi this is my first post. i have decided to treat myself to a pair of "audiophile" headphones for under $200 dollars. I mostly listen to electronic or rock music. The two headphones i have been looking into most are the Sennheiser HD 598's and the Beyerdynamic DT990 Pro's. I know I will also need an amplifier, but the cost of that does not factor into the $200 dollar budget. The DT990's have been on sale for around 150 USD on Amazon for quite a while. The only bad thing I hear about those is that the mid's are quite recessed. I am open to any other headphones you may suggest, as long as they fit my budget. Thank you in advance!

Have you checked the buying guide that is linked in the opening page of this thread?

Yes but I wanted to get input from other consumers as well.

For electronic music you need a fast headphone.  The HD 598 is good at many things, but not that.

Have you considered the hd25-1's?
