    I am looking for a pair of.open cans for under 200. I have a pair of shure 840s and an e10 amp so something that would.work well with an e10 amp. Mainly for gaming so I prefer something with a large soundstage

    Check out the Soundmagic HP200, retails at $250 but mine are up for sale for $170 shipped, will work great with your source and excellent for your needs.

    Find a gently used pair of Sennheiser HD 598s.

    DT 990 pro maybe?

    I was looking at the 598s and the dt990 but which model of the 990s they have different models
  6. Marximus
    I found the DT 990 Pro to be a bit boomy and also slightly harsh.  The DT 990-600 Ohm version is the best in my estimation but it might need more than an E10 to sound its best.  I found the HD 598s to be neither harsh/sibilant or boomy, issues you might encounter with the DT 990 series.

    I think the 598 may be a bit laid back...
