I've had constant hissing and intermittent ringing since my teens. I have about 20% hearing loss from years of drumming/car audio/shooting. Interestingly, I’ve blown out the highs in my left ear and the lows in my right, so between them I can hear most tones decently. Rubbing your fingers together and switching sides will show you if you’re missing a pitch or if your balance is off like me. I’ve considered having mine mapped by an audiologist and getting a headphone custom tuned for it.
Some things that help me are using the “reddit tinnitus cure” for a few minutes relief. I’ll often use it before, during, and after a listening session to reduce the ringing temporarily; although, it does little for the hiss. I never exceed talking level listening on volume and limit myself to 1 hour listening sessions for safety. IEMs seem to exacerbate the ringing for me. Whenever I get a loud ringing, I take time off, sometimes even a few days. Resist the temptation to plug your ears and let them heal naturally in a quiet environment. I’ve found that soft natural sounds help drown out the ring and hiss. If you want treatment, check out “notch” therapy. Apparently, you can train your brain to ignore certain tones after enough exposure.

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.

The $400 question: E-mu Teak or Aeon Closed X? (Just try both?)
I am looking for my end game. For most of you that is a dream. At my 68 years of hearing experience it is more real than most of you know! I will become less, not more demanding other than the need to increasingly EQ!! Not yet but it's coming... So I would rather spend my money on one very good pair of closed headphones than go for multiple specialists in desktop, movie, portable, gaming, analytical/monitor, fun etc. My audio experience is extensive. Headphones though quite limited; originally Koss Pro 4a, finally the Sony MDR-V900HD closed purchased 14 years ago (!) that I am still using with different pads. They are still good but I have no recent reference to judge them by. And I want more clarity. With the pads I have they are somewhat mid-centric and veiled, with neither highs nor lows particularly convincing, though the sound is quite neutral & natural otherwise. I listen to Classic Rock/Stones, Who; Metal/Iron Maiden, Motorhead & Classical, with some Bluegrass and Blues...
