I have a Razer Kraken 7.1 Chroma headphones i plan to change them because they are sort of uncomfortable after a couple of hours of use, can someone help me out if should buy the Sennheiser HD 558, 598 or The Game One., and would they sound better than my Razer Kraken 7.1 chroma ?

518/598/558/game one are basically all the same thing.

in the 518/558/598 line as you move up build quality increases and signature changes very slightly from a little bassy to mostly neutral while soundstage increases a little. fairly slight changes though.

the 558 is best value but the 598 will be the best option if you can afford it.

558 is the best value, pair them with a mic. The sound will be much more balanced and clear compared to your Razer Krakens. Comfort and build quality will also be a large improvement.
