Need help for choosing a pair of 300-500€ over-ear headphones that suits any genres

Hi, I currently own a pair of Sennheiser HD598 and I wanted to find something that can make me stop looking for more.

The Sennheiser are great but are not enough for what I'm looking for.

These are the features I want to upgrade:

Better definition and clarity

Better imaging and instrument separation

Better impact,textured,defined bass (not muddy)

Involving and clear mids (that sounds close or distant when they need to)

Nice highs, clear but not harsh. 

Every feature that I wrote above is essential. 

What I'd listen with them:

 

Music (320 kbps MP3, Flac)

This is mostly what I listen (entire albums or discographies)

 

Blink 182

Epica

SUM 41

Simple Plan

Rise Against

Skillet

Three Days Grace

Breaking Benjamin

Finger Eleven

Celtic Woman

Andrea Bocelli

Puccini

Vivaldi

Mozart

Beethoven

3 Doors Down

Bon Jovi

Red Hot Chili Peppers

The Fray

Story Of the year

Eminem

 

I'll also use them while watching blue rays and playing video-games.

I'm currently driving my Senn with an STX sound card.

Maybe HE400. It suits every genre, though it shines with jazz. I've read that some aren't wholly satisfied with the mids; others think the treble is sharp. I certainly didn't have the latter problem

The He-400 seems good but there are many revision, is there any thread that explain how to distinguish them? Any kind owner of the HE 400 that can tell me how my songs sound on these headphones?

If you tell us what amp and source component you are using it would be easier to help you out.

After you use the search bar, ask on the HE400 thread.
