Best Closed Headphones with Wide Sound-stage under $300

I am searching for Closed headphones with wide sound-stage, I know it is hard to find and few of the best ones are sadly discontinued. But I need them for a friend who will use it for gaming, streaming and recording. I am searching for headphone that is neutral, clear and perfect throughout the frequency range.



Here is what I am considering:

Audio-Technica ATH-MSR7b
SONY MDR-1AM2
Meze 99 Classics
Sennheiser Momentum Over-ear Wired
Beyerdynamic DT770Pro
Audio-Technica ATH-A990Z(of which I am unable to find any info on, does any one here own them)


Which of these will be the best. Are there any more recommendations.

I have test-listened some 20 pairs of headphones about 10 years ago and I quite liked the DT-770. They were very comfortable and sounded nice to me back then. Like literally every pair of headphones I've ever seen it'll need some EQ to sound good (to me in the present day now).
I own a pair of HD650 now, but these are out of your price range and also open back. I also own 3 pairs of the Superlux HD-662 and two or three other Superlux models, which sound very good for their price (they actually sound good regardless imo), but they clamp SUPER hard.
