I am looking for a pair of headphones to use on my Xbox One and for Rock music. The gaming is what I would really focus on though. My budget is $200 and I am willing to buy used. I have seen Mad Lust Envy's guide but I'd like a few other people's opinions. Thanks!
Gaming and Rock under $200 (used is ok)

From cheapest to more expensive
Superlux 681 Evo
Creative Aurvana Live!
Audio Technica ATH-M50
Beyerdynamic DT 770 (32 Ohm or 80 Ohm)
Beyerdynamic DT 990 (32 Ohm)
Beyerdynamic DT 880 (32 Ohm)
Note, the 250 Ohm and up versions of the Beyerdynamics need an amp to sound really good, so I excluded them since it sounds like you don't plan on spending money on an amp.
You shouldn't have any problems with big ears. I have huge ears (so big the 558s wouldn't seal correctly) and they fit me just fine. I can measure my ears if you'd like to see if they would be big enough for you. (might be better to measure the earcups huh.)
