My AKG K702 just went south for reason which I can't figure out.  Generally, I use the headphone for my gaming and music sessions. Which headphone should I get for my requirement?
 
I've with me a first generation Audio-gd Compass which my AKG is connected. What I look for is a headphone with nice low, mid and high.
 
Advice highly appreciated.

AKG K550 sounds like a K702 with more bass, and it has a really wide soundstage for a closed headphone (good for gaming)
 
You can also consider the Beyerdynamic DT880, but that has a very shrill treble that can be sibilant.
 
Another option and one of my favourite headphones is the Sennheiser HD600, which also has wonderful, quite dark sound.
