Headphones for gaming/Music

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

So these headphones I have had in the past.
Astro's A40's-They were comfortable and loved gaming with them. But for music, and on the go, I did not like them so much. 

Beats Studio-For gaming, I do not like these as much as the Astros but like them better for music.

I know that these two headsets have bad ratings but I did not know better 5 years ago.

For music I listen to a lot of rap/hip hop/metal/Blues

Also, I still have the mixamp from my Astros.

SO two headphones that I am looking at 

Sennheiser HD 558

and

ATH-M50X 


It would be cool to have a headset with a detachable mic, but I can buy a separate mic if needed. 
I was thinking of getting the Sennheiser's for gaming and keep the beats for music

Budget is around $200

Any suggestions?
