What's up everyone!
Basically to sum this up, I'm looking for the best closed-back headphones with sound stage.

I play Counter-Strike: Global Offensive least to say an hour every day and my 9$ Chinese headphones aren't going to cut it.

The specifictions I'm looking for is as the following:
Closed-back but good sound-stage to help with the FPS games.
But it also has to have good overall sound quality.

Budget is 250$ (USD)

Thanks!

I'd recommend the Audio Technica ATH-A700x or ATH-A900x.

Read that guide and look at the review ratings. Note that some of those headphones might need a headphone amp.

For closed headphones, the K553 currently available on massdrop for $119 is an incredible deal. This is a slight upgrade to the AKG K551, which is acknowldged to have one of the best soundstages of a closed headphone. The K553 would also be easy to drive--no headphone amp required. :)

The M50/M50X is not known for having a its soundstage. The K553 would be a much better choice for gaming.
