Better than Sennheiser Game One for music on PC

I'm using a soundblasterx AE-5 for amplification. I'm primarily a gamer but listen to a lot of music as well on my PC, FLAC when possible. I'm okay with having to switch plugs when necessary but would prefer not to.



The game ones with open back are great cans, but I have a feeling there is more to be had. I'm really missing some bass, as it is I have to use the software EQ for my sound preference, which is very warm and bassy. To get what I want out of these game ones I am using far more EQ than I would like. I'm not willing to sacrifice everything else at the expense of strong bass. Any suggestions?


Thanks guys...
