    I apologise for my English right away. I have been looking for my first open-back headphones for some time. I looked through tens of headphones and reviews. And these models caught my eye:
    • Sennheiser 599
    • Beyerdinamic DT 990 (32 Ohm edition)
    • AKG 702 (or 7xx)
    • Phillips fidelio x2
    I want to use headphones without an amp or dac, because I'd like to use these headphones with my phone.

    My main use is gaming (like CSGO, Tf2, Gta5, Fornite). As for music, I listen to hip-hop and pop.
    I'd like something with a wide soundstage. I'd like something more than a neutral sound.
    Budget: under 300€
    Thanks in advance!

    X2 seems like the best choice. It's easily powered, has great bass for hip hop, wide soundstage..I don't game, but I have heard they are great for gaming. As a bonus they are really well made and very comfortable.

    The K702 and the DT990 are not really an option without dedicated power. Of the other two, my preference is also for the X2. Really easy to drive.

    From what you said, I'd definitely recommend the X2 above all.

    I've had mine for over 3 years, I still use them for both music and gaming.

    I also recommend the X2,
    it is comfortable to wear, for serious music fans that want excellent audio quality,
    it's a superb choice.

    Without an amp? - X2 for sure. With an amp (considering your budget) - Beyerdynamic DT990 32 ohm as it will still be easier to power than an AKG K702. If your budget had been a little higher I would recommend the K702 + an amp pairing.
