The problem I have now is, its hard to tell sounds coming from above or below. I believe a true 7.1 headphone will fix that. I don't have a budget atm, I'm just gonna put the recommended headphones on the list and see which one goes on sale the most.
Stereo headphone and locating sound is a matter of getting used to your headphones. I've used closed HD200 Master and they are well narrow soundstage, what else, but damn I could pin point people in CS by sound just fine and track their walking out of sight.
Obviously using an open headphone with drivers more far from your ears will give you bigger soundstage and easier to tell where sounds are coming from.
Avoid all the gamery brands, Logitech, Kingston/HyperX, etc. If it's not sold in a music instruments/gear shop and it's only in PC components shops, it's "gamery" trash most of the time nowadays.
If you want Sennheiser, either the cheap 598SR or what's the name or HD600 with a better cable if you want to spend some. Skip the rest, it's not worth it.
Either way find a headphone store and listen to many yourself.
