7.1 headphone aren't going to improve your game.  The individual drivers are poor, and or the "enhanced" effects are no where near what higher-end headphones can pull off.

 

A good starting budget to some quality cans (which are also good for gaming) would be the AKG240s.  Absolutely amazing for the price.  The MKIIs are the same thing with different pads.  The regular 240s will run you around 100.  They're also very comfortable.

 

Another good alternative are the Grados SR80s but they aren't as comfortable.

and i have question can normal headphones wihout 7.1 somehow get it by adding card or something?

The headset's with the added 7.1 surrond feature, for the most part produce their sound through software. What does this mean then? Well, if you have a great software program that you can use on your headphones you can get good surrond. 

I can suggest the software razer surrond. It has a basic free version which will give you 7.1 surrond sound and you can also get a paid version which let get other features like bass boost for example. I have the hyperx cloud 2 which already has 7.1 but i tried the razer surrond on them and i can't spot any real difference between the out of the box software and the razer surrond software.

It was the low ends that killed me for the Sennheiser 555/595s.  It's an incomplete headphone I no longer recommend.  The AKG 240s are a lot better.

 

Oh, there is also a nasty spike in the upper ranges that when heard, from a gun being shot off, the crackle absolutely destroyed my ears every time I heard it.  I really dislike the 555s/595s.

595's had a more prominent mid and high range. 598's have less highs and mids, also making the bass stand out a bit more, but they are still far away from something like a pair of M50's or even the HyperX Clouds in terms of bass. 

 

OP: I am sure a set of 598s (that you mentioned) will do you GREAT for gaming. They have a really open and wide soundstage, a very user-friendly, laid back sound with decent bass (no basshead headphone tho) However, keep in mind that they are open, so they do not isolate outside sound at all, and your sound (if you're blasting your ears to oblivion) will leak out to your surroundings. They are definitely better for gaming than those Monsters, as those are closed, giving you a narrower soundstage (worse positional audio) 

 

Also the 598s don't have a mic, so if you need that, look for a zalman clip on mic, or if you have the cash, Samson Meteor, C01U, Blue snowball (ice version is cheaper) or snowflake are good 


New favorite song, sit back and enjoy.

reviews: JBL J33i   M50s   SRH440   Soundmagic PL50
