Best headset for around $150?

What is the best wired headset for mainly gaming around $150. I can go above or below that budget if needed, and I also don't need a mic attached. Thanks :)

The fidelio X2HR that would be great. Those headphones have a really big soundstage because of their open back design and big 50mm drivers. They also have memory foam ear pads which are really nice. They are easily drivable without an amp.

Great headphones for being closed back. He did not need a mic but that wont matter too much I guess.

But @Prolicity, if you want to try out open back if you are not in a noisy environment you really should invest in some open back headphones since they sound much better for music and especially gaming.
