I'm really fond of my Sennheiser HD558's, but I'm not an audiophile. They are new to the market, along with the 598's. I have a Xonar Essense ST which is just the PCI version of your card.

i know :/ your paying 100$ for the hype. but i still think it sounds better than other headphones for the bass. but if you listen to like different music too like classical or pop then look into the sennheisers or rolands.

Quantity of bass does not mean quality of bass.

Anyway, Ultrasone HFI-780 $230 CAN from a Canadian seller

Completely wrong. Listen to say some electronic music and them determine the number of basslines. The amount of bass has nothing to do with the quality of it. The bass detail for example, it not being one-note.
