I would recommend the the MDR-XB920 if you are going for a flat sound profile. A flat set of headphones have basically no enhancements to the audio. Ex. drivers altered to deliver more bass or to deliver more treble. The advantage of a flat set of headphones is to hear the music that the producer has intended the audience to hear, and to hear no enhanced audio.
If you're looking for bass, go for the MDR-10R. They offer better bass, but odds are that they might drown out vocals and the higher end frequency and make them sound a bit more muffled.
A good in between those two would probably be the ATH-M40X because Audio Technica's sound signature features a tiny bit more bass which is very boomy and punchy, while still remaining relatively flat.

Wired Headphones for Movies
My entertainment What qualities, measurements, characteristics do I needed to look for in wired headphones that will be best for immersion, scale, and 3d/surround sound impact listening specifically for movies? I watch movies exclusively through my desktop pc. The audio setup I run with my pc is no eq software but a Drop O2/Grace Dac inline with a Drop THX AAA 789 with one headphone the Drop Sennheiser 6xx. The 6xx are great for my music and browsing internet content but for watching movies I want more depth, scale and immersion. I understand the basics of headphones,amps, and dacs so I have maybe a theory with that knowledge what would be better headphone for movies for me but not sure. I believe I am looking for headphone with wide and good sound stage but retaining detail and texture. Two headphones that I am considering that may be what I am after are Hifiman 5xx(wide sound stage) or Hifiman 6xx(not generally the widest sound stage for planar but wider than a 6xx but Sundara...

5XX Left Ear Cup Stopped Working... How to diagnose/repair?
I have a 5xx headphone and was listening to music when suddenly the left side cut out. I tried to swap the cable and used another device to confirm it was the left side that had some issue. All configurations had no noise in the left ear. To my knowledge, this was not due to dropping the headphones or some other damage (again, to my knowledge as they may have been dropped before and the previous damage just now caused some fault). I am not familiar with basic repairs or troubleshooting with headphones, especially with something as fragile as planars. I was wondering if anyone has advice for how to check for what is actually wrong with the headphone. I would prefer to diagnose and repair any simple issues, but from a visual inspection I did not see any broken magnets or really any difference from the other side. I can open them up to get a better look at the internals, but I want to first confirm that there are no more basic checks or tests that I can do to diagnose the issue...
