Looking to get a pair of headphones for 75% gaming and the other 25% music listening. -FPS games -All genres of music Looking for a big sound stage for the more engaging surround in games and I've come down to these two and having hard time deciding. I can get both at roughly the same price and I've heard good things about both and is make it extremely hard to pick. If anyone has tested both of them, opinions would be greatly appreciated. I've read that the k612s are very natural sounding with forward mids which I know is beneficial for gunshots and footsteps. I've also read that they can lack bass and some music genres won't be as nice on these. Some people also complain about the headband, which doesn't look like much of an issue to me. As for the HD598s, they are said to have a wide sound stage and to be excellent for gaming. Also, heard they lack bass too, not sure which is worse. They are said to be more fun sounding while the 612s I heard will maybe lose the fun factor. As for comfort I haven't heard any complaints. Removable cable is also a nice feature. I can get both for roughly the same cost so that isn't an issue. Don't have amp at the moment other then a SB Z but I will be getting one, so It's just down to which is preferred for gaming and hitting all music genres rather then being amazing at a few and lacking in some.
