Sennheiser 559 ain’t good for house. Just avoid open backs for house unless you get planar magnetic headphones which will blow you away.

Agreed but will be better if you care about gaming

yes the 559 are better for gaming overal. not the best in house but very decent as it has a good amount of bass for a open back. I wouldn't use the ATH's for either applications really. its tuned to be neutral as well as audio technica closed back which has the tendency to be for monitoring rather than actually enjoying music.
