Best headphones around 60

Hello people.
i need some advice on which headset i should buy.
im searching a headset for around 60 euros.
i will use it for gaming and music.
the type of music i listen is house, electro, DnB, trap etc mostly from mostercat.
at this moment im thinking about the sennheiser hd 439, 461 or 471.
thanks in advance.

the AKG M220 is on massdrop should i get those?
I haven't tried the CAL, but I love my Sony MDR 7506.

That's a good one as well but I usually see it around $80 though, saw it at $43 one time and that's a killer deal. The CAL currently retails for $47-55 with regularity.
As others have stated, in that price range the CAL! is pretty much unparalleled. The headphone is OEM'd by fostex and the first incarnation of the headphone (Denon branded) sold for way above the current $50 ish price.
I agree with Heefty on the Creative aurvana live! (the first edition, not the 2) I've had a pair for a few years and sound quality is really good. I haven't listened to the 3 sennheisers you listed but I do have a set of hd449s which is the predecessor to the 471s and I will say that the detail on those were good but lacked a little in bass. The thing I didn't like about the 449s was that were a bit uncomfortable to wear. The clamping force was a bit too tight for me and the pads were quite rigid. I'm not sure if the 471s are the same though.
If you do a bit of ebay searching, you might be able to find the older Audio Technica M50 (for coiled cable, M50S for straight cable) in that price range. Detachable cable version M50x are going down in price as well generally.
I'm liking the HD 419, they're good for the music you listen to
Creative Aurvana Live! hands down for sealed at that price range.

For open, the Philips SHP9500 when you can get them are very good and around that price range right now on Newegg.
