Need: Closed monitors with good positioning

    Hey,

    I'm doing professional records from games with mostly live commentary. I'm looking for good monitors for this purpose.
     
    Problem
    I currently use CAL! for production (monitoring) and Sennheiser IE8 for post-production. IE8 is great, but I can't talk in IEMs - my ears are vibrating. On the other hand CAL! has nice isolation and acceptable sound quality, but in some games I need good positioning which those headphones lack - with more than one source all sound blends so I can't tell exact distance or direction. On the other hand IE8 is great in it, I can easily locate few sound sources at the same time.
     
    Sum up: I currently have to use two pairs of headphones.
     
    Solution
    Closed can headphones for production and post-production.
     
    Priorities:
    • isolation (no leaking), comfort
    • positioning, SQ (neutral possibly)
     
    I don't know audiophile language but maybe what would help is called "presence".
     
    No mic needed, I use separate one.
     
    Question
    Could you suggest what should I buy?
     
    Ah, budget. Any - the cheaper the better but I won't hesitate to spend more if it will be worthwhile (then I'd need more sure information about separation - here's a great site to check it: quakelive.com).
