How are HiFiMan HE4XX compared to Monolith M560?

Want to try planar headphones under 200$. Wich one is going to be better for listening to music (classic rock, jazz, blues) and gaming?

I have both and I prefer the HiFiman’s
I know this is an old thread but what do you prefer precisely? Better lows/mids/highs, soundstage, clarity/accuracy, speed?
The Hifiman HE-4XX for sure. It's the best bang-for-your-buck in the planar world and, unlike the Monoprice headphones, don't practically require mods to sound good.
I would recommend getting a set of revision 2 M1060's on r/av exchange. There are usually a couple pairs floating around in the $150 to $200 range.
