So I'm using the Sennheiser HD 598 right now with a Asus Pheobus sound card, got a Creative X7 on the way.

I'm quite content, these are the best headphones I've used and trump any gaming headset I've ever had (most are utter crap comparatively!)

I'm looking for info on the most recommended open-back cans for gaming, though. I do use them for music and movies as well, but that's on the back-burner in terms of what's most important with my audio.

Sound stage, directionality (is that a word?), neutral, healthier bass than the 598's is sort of what I'm after if I had to specify

I gathered a list from some research that I'll put below, maybe some light could be shed on comparisons if anyone has owned some?
Thanks (list below)
