And I forgot to mention that I'm using Apple Lossless format.
Again, thanks for your help

2. Of all the headphones Marcus sells, a Grado/Allesandro design is about the last I would choose if I were looking for a punchy headphone for gaming. The have neither the soundstage nor the visceral bass thump you want for explosions etc. I also think there are more comfortable options than the weight (metal housings) of the MS2 for long periods in front of a screen.
I'll hand you over to Marcus for more specific recommendations, but IMO you can definitely do better for gaming than the MS2.

I have a few questions about the MS2. How hard-hitting is the bass? Enough to be as prominent as the highs? I would like a punchy headphone.
And how would it handle gaming?

They do have a small soundstage, but small soundstage doesn't mean bad positioning. The positional queues might not be completely in your face, but they will still be there. Much better than an average quality closed phone with muddy/blurred/resonant mids.
OK, they're not best choice for gaming, but by no means worst choice.

OK, I accept that FPS isnt the only genre in the gaming universe, and that knuckle-draggers like myself are the lowest common denominator. We just wanna kill stuff, OK ?
