Default I'm looking for a new set of headphones for home use, this is what I listen to, help

I'm looking for a new set of headphones because I want to have something "different".
Right now I own a Grado SR325is (which I really like because they are so energetic and colorful ), and a Stax Lambda Nova Basic ( I like these too because they are "spacious" sounding and have some nice bass and "heft" ) So i enjoy what I have currently, but also want something else.

This is the genre of music I prefer to listen to:
- Movie/Game Soundtracks ( dramatic, orchestral, modern sounding ( think of the "Dark Knight" , "Inception" or Call of Duty MW soundtracks )
- Hard Rock ( sometimes )
- Ambient

I do 90% of my listening at home , I have no time to listen to anything at school.

These are the option I have considered, but they are not "set in stone";
- HiFiman HE-4 ($449 on head direct)
- HiFiman HE-5 ($429 on headroom)
- Grado RS1i ( if I could find a good deal, which is hard )
- AKG k701 ( maybe )
- Anything else ??

And if I could find ( or if anyone knows of a good deal on a combo ie. headphone/amp )

**My Budget is $550 (Maximum)**

I would like to hear some input and opinions on which move I should make.
