It depends on what your looking for. They both seem like good choices but I would probably lean towards the OB-1 if you're okay with the open back (FYI, it looks like a re-braned Somic MH463 if that helps). From what I've read, the HD518 is very bassy (if that's your thing) while the OB-1 is meant to be very flat in terms of frequency response. Keep in mind that open headphones can be a pain if your not in a very quite area when using them.

Thanks, I am looking for open back for gaming and I like a little bass but am not a "bass head" but one of the reasons I am considering the hd518 is because they have a removable cable (I own two cats). I would rather have my headphones have more clarity to them than bass. Also, how would these compare to the sennheiser hd558?
