Headphone suggestion for wide use(almost everything)

    I'm an absolute ignorant about headphones,but unfortunatly I have got ears and I get tired of my cheap earphones.

    My uses:

        music: rock,punk,eletronic(house,trance and others that I can't define) classic ->70%
        movies -> 10%
        gaming -> 20%

    Also I would like to use them while I'm outside(public transports).

    I have done a few researches around the web and these are my conclusions:
    Sennheiser HD598 (160€):

        Can change the cable
        Very good soundstage
        Easy to drive with an amp(maybe a FiiO E11 and for home Xonar U3 if needed)
        Lack of strong bass

    Beyerdynamic DT990 250 ohm (135€)

        Better sound (I have read that it has got more bass,but I don't know if I can hear the difference)
        3m of cables that I can't change
        I need 240€ (lowest price I have found) to drive it properly (E09K + FiiO E17)

    I have read also about other headphones like AKG K701(198€)

    Other price:

    FiiO E11 50€

    I would like to spend less than 300€ (headphones plus AMPand/or DAC)

    Just for information I have got a Logitech Z5500 at home

    I would give the Philips Cityscape Downtown a try. They seal really well for an on-ear headphones and the sound signature is my favorite for a headphone under $200. They simply are an awesome headphone.
