so i've been looking to get into the audio scene lately (and by lately i mean been researching for about 5 months) and i'm not confident which one to go for, because where i live there are no stores to try out headphones in, so i don't know what my preferred sound signature is, so i will try to provide every bit of information i can think of to help you with helping me.

Music genres: Rock,Rap,Jazz,Blues,EDM,Classical,etc.

Other Usage: I will be using these headphones for gaming, mainly fps, so positional audio is very important, another main use is movies so bass is preferred for action movies, but not too much bass tho.

Preferences: I prefer that the headphone has good build quality, and also a good attractive design is preferable, but most importantly a wide soundstage and detailed imaging is a must, the soundstage shouldn't be too wide tho so it wouldn't interfere with imaging.

List of headphones i'm looking at:
1-dt990 /dt880 pros
2-he400i
3-hd558/598/599
4 philips fidelio x2
5- suggestions appreciated!
thanks in advance!
(note : my budget limit for an amp dac combo is the fiio e10k)

I'm not sure a better headphone exists for 150 bucks than the Sennheiser HD 58X.
