Blue Sadie, thoughts?

This dynamic headphone is powered by a completely analog, built-in amp which also offers a passive mode. The drivers are 50cm with a 42ohm impendance. Powered, the built-in amp delivers about 240mW. I considered the Ella, planar magnetic, but couldn’t justify the price considering Hifiman and Audeze put out great cans at the price point of $699 MSRP. These Saidies are about $399MSRP. I bought them on auction for $280. I watched Zeos’ review on YouTube and have searched for other credible review sources. It was a drop here a while back with so few purchases and little love online in terms of amount of reviews. Is there anyone with firsthand listening experience or reliable, third-party frequency response graph? Any thoughts? I plan on driving these cans with my Topping D30 DAC, Massdrop O2 amp, and listening to music via Deezer lossless audio.
For reference, I own the HD58X (I love its vocal presence) and HE4XX (for its clarity, speed, slight brightness and tighter bass) . I just recently purchased the DT1990PRO. I auditioned the DT1990PRO at the local Yodabashi Camera and was enamored with its clarity, accuracy, sound stage, bass impact and extension. Though, the treble was a bit shrill, I can forgive its sibilance simply because I can EQ it and the build/design is phenomenal. I enjoy a warm sound, though not too warm, clinical, accurate, and a touch fun. I bought and sold my Meze 99 Neos because the bass was wonderful, but muddy, and it was fantastically warm, though a little too artificially warm for my liking.

Best imaging and soundstage headphones for positioning and immersion?
I was looking at He4XX and K7XX mainly, but I was going to use these mostly for gaming and some music, which means overall imaging is the most important, but I also wouldn't want a headphone that's too boring. Thank you for any help. Edit: My previous headphones were Sennheiser G4ME One's, I'd want comparable or better performance.

An upgrade to my Little Dot MKII
I made the decision to upgrade my modest Little Dot MKII Tube Amplifier this past week and it just got here yesterday. This is a used piece of gear, it's the first generation Woo Audio WA6. I wanted to go with Silver as it would match my Solid State Burson Conductor 3 Performance Headphone Amp/DAC/Pre-Amp, as well as the Schiit Lokius I also picked up recently. I wound up with Black; it was in the best condition of those I saw available, it was priced better and it came from an audio dealership with a brick & mortar store which displayed a working telephone number and an A+ rating with the BBB so I knew that I was probably safe in dealing with the gentleman. The Lokius is brand new. What I've learned is that I am going to have to do some figuring out how to deal with all of this new stuff, including how to get it all onto my 6 foot desk along with my lamp and modem. Apparently the Lokius has to be connected between Amp and DAC, so it would fit in between...
