Hi. I'm looking for a set of cans that run around $600 to $1000. They will be used on my PC through a Mayflower ARC AMP/DAC and have a ModMic5 attached for gaming. I'm looking for great bass. I like a lot of bass. But I want the overall sound to be nice as well. They will mostly be used for gaming but also movies and music as well. Any suggestions would be appreciated and if you need more detail I will gladly respond. Thanks for your time.

Soundmagic HP200 headphones, around $150.

Check out the Fostex brand headphones offered on the Massdrop website.

You should check out the Sony mdr z7. You can find them cheaper on eBay as well. Wide soundstage and more than enough bass.

Be careful when you're sticking the modmic to the cups. Based off user comments, the wood lacquer seems quite easily damaged.
