Desktop setup upgrade

I have an older sennheiser headphone(HD 280 pro) that I use with a HiFimeDIY UAE23 USB DAC (ESS Sabre ES9023+Savitech SA9023) and running Foobar with a bunch of tweaks on it.

So Laptop running Foobar(tweaks) --> HiFime USB Dac --> HD 280 Pro.

So I am thinking of upgrading the headphones and maybe looking at a different headphone dac as well.

Pricing say start with $200 on headphones and same with Dac. I haven't looked for a while but I know there are lots of options even in this price range.

Some I have started reading up on -

HIFIMAN HE4XX Planar Magnetic Headphones - $145 - Planer

Sennheiser HD 6XX Headphones - $195 - open-back headphone

Sennheiser HD 58X Jubilee Headphones - $150 - open-back design

AKG K7XX Audiophile Headphones - $200 - Open-back

Beyerdynamic DT880 Pro Limited-Edition Black - $150 - semi-open design

Any others I should be reading up on.

Seems I should be looking at the 58x or he4xx but still open to suggestions.
