BesBuy is selling Sennheiser HD439's for 100$ (normal price is 150$) is it worth it? Currently using Shure SRH440's. How do the HD439's fare against HD555 for gaming?

HD555 are better, and open back. I doubt the 439s are worth buying if you already have SRH440s.

How good would the sennheiser 598's be for gaming? Also, if im in canada, which store has them for good price? On amazon.ca they're 300$ -.- Never bought any headphones for over 150$ so i think its time and i want something hot!

I've only spent 5 minutes with 598s but they were very comfy. $300 seems a lot, in the UK they're £160.

What about the sennheiser 558? Would they be better for gaming (much cheaper too, 200$) than 598's? Do i need to buy a sound card or an amp if i'll be using them on my pc and soon on ps4?

Interesting, in the UK there's only a tiny price difference. The 558s should still be a good choice though for comfy open back cans. A sound card and/or an amp would help but isn't completely necessary for those headphones. You could buy them and then add one later on.

Any suggestions for sound card/amp? Since i'll be using them for ps4 later this year its better to buy an amp, right? Also, if i wanna use them on my pc, an amp is all you need or a sound card is also needed?

Amp is all you need, and maybe with a DAC.

It would be a large improvement over the DT880's I feel. Just get a Magni.

I have two pairs of Gioteck EX05 multiplatform headset. I won one in a competition so it just forever hibernates. I actually really hate them. They sound fine but they get really uncomfortable when I wear them for ages. Also I look so stupid when I wear them cause they're massive and I have a tiny head.

May be so, but the HD650's sound amazing right now. I can see why people rave about these headphones now. There extremely relaxing, one of the man reasons I bought them.

Yeah, they add a bit of warmth without masking the original sound much. Great listening 'phones. How do they compare with your DT880s?

Honestly, I haven't listened to them much(got them at about 7 last night, and had to wake up at 5:30 AM today to play 3 baseball games) So I have listened basically 3 hours. I can see where they both have their spots. DT880's for stuff like Animal Collective(basically anything with synth or electronic sounds) and the HD650's for stuff like Pink Floyd. I can see myself using the HD650's a bit more than the DT880's, but I will definately use the DT880. Also, HD650 for at night relaxing.
