Hi guys,
 
I'm entirely new to the whole Head-Fi scene. I've been reading threads on this forum for a month and I've learned a lot about headphones from you guys. 
I'm in Slovakia and I am looking for a nice headphones with a good/amazing "soundstage" for FPS gaming and for best price per performance.
 
My sound card is Asus Xonar DG.
My budget is around $150.
 
 
I've been looking at:
Takstar HI2050
ATH-AD500X
Teufel Aureol Real
 
Could anyone suggest a better/alternative choice?
What should I get?
 
Any help with be appreciated...

HD 558 and Audio Technica ATH-AD900X are available to me.
I also consider HD598. Would HD598 be OK for me?
 
HD558 90€ =~$100
HD598 145€ =~$161
ATH-AD900X 319€ =~$356
I have to choose betwwen HD558 and HD598.
 
Is my soundcard "good" enough for HD558 / HD598 and for soundstage in FPS gaming?

Yes. The HD558 and HD598 are excellent for soundstage for gaming.

Yes. Your soundcard will drive them well.

You can make the HD558 sound much more similar to the HD598 with this simple mod: http://www.headfonia.com/sennheisers-new-hd558-and-hd598/3/
