"Best set of headphones" is a very hard thing to answer. It really depends on what you want to use them for. If it's just for gaming without a mic, I would recommend Philips L2BO/27 Fidelio Headphones.
They come with an in-line mic, but the cable is detachable and can be replaced with any 3.5mm male-to-male cable.
As others have said, if you want one with a pretty decent mic and great audio, you could try the HyperX Cloud II Gaming Headset.
Both of these will give you great audio, and will plug directly into the DS4 without the need for a headphone amp.
Of course these are just what I use, and just something you may want to add to your list for consideration. There may be some better choices out there.
I only saw my self mentioning Philips Fidelio L2
I picked up a pair of Phillips Fidelio L2s and they are absoultely fantastic for metal. The semi-open setup makes it so that you get the best open sound stage you can without giving up on the bass. Metal needs enough bass that you can hear technical kicks, so fully open headphones aren't perfect for it, but it also doesn't need as much as hip hop or EDM, so fully closed ones aren't necessary.
The following headphones all work with the BoomPro.
If you really want to get into Hi-Res and audiophile grade headphones then you should get something like Audio Technica MSR7 , Philips Fidelio L2 or Sony MDR-1R
Edit: In-ear that are good enough for Hi-Res would be: RHA 750i, Sony XBA-H3 or Shure SE425
I would have a look at the Philips Fidelio L2 which is a fairly fun sounding headphone without becoming overly bloated in bass or too sharp in the treble. It also provides a reasonable amount of isolation for a semi-closed headphone.
Alternatives to look at would be:
Sennheiser HD 600: Fully open so minimal isolation, very balanced sounding, requires an amp to get the best from it. Probably the best buy under 300 quid at the moment but it really does benefit from good upstream components.
MrSpeakers Mad Dogs: Closed (good isolation) planar dynamic, very popular, good fairly balanced sound. Amp not required but it does benefit. Quite large and heavy.
Well on the other hand, audio master race costs at least an arm, a kidney, 2 lungs and a truck of gold bars. Show me some inexpensive rig that's considered "audiophile" and I'll be happy.
I already had a hard time putting 200€ on those (which sound very decent, I have to admit, but that's far from an audiophile setup since I don't have a DAC or even a dedicated audio card.
Is this the set you were talking about? Because I searched the names you gave me and that pair and this pair are the ones that I found. I just wanted you to link to the ones you were talking about directly, so their wouldn't be any confusion. I really want to make a choice on the headphones ASAP because the headset I have now shit itself and one of the sides isn't playing audio. I won't be able to do much until I get new headphones as I do not have any external speakers.
Looks like you are pretty limited since you are in the Netherlands. I personally wouldn't get the 598 for the music above, I thought the 598 were too relaxed for these genres.
I took a look in the amazon website, can't really read it but here are a few decent choices for what you are looking for.
The Cloud II isn't a very bad option. You should try it and see if you like it first. If they aren't good enough, then try one of the options above. It does make more sense to buy another headphone though since you have a standalone mic already.
