I'm thinking about picking up the sr80e in the nearish future. I've heard they work really well for rock, but how about music with a more acoustic focus? Folk/Folk Rock, Indie Singer/songwriter? And how is the soundstage? I've heard Grado's house sound includes very forward mids, but I'd like something fairly open with good stereo imaging both for music and good positional audio for gaming. It doesn't have to sound like I'm sitting in a concert hall, but something significantly more open than my M50x would be nice. I've heard that the ATH-AD700x are a great gaming can and are very spacious, but the two headphones seem to have pretty different sound signatures. Any thoughts on how they stack up to each other for the genres I mentioned and for gaming? I can provide some links to some artists that I'll be listening to pretty often if needed.
