Keep in mind that the DT 990 is sibilant even to people who like treble-forward headphones. It's not a headphone for everyone.

Also the DT 990 pads are notorious for wearing out quickly. I have to change the pass on mine every 2 to 3 months as they become so flat, the driver cover starts pressing on my ears. This doesn't apply to the DT 770 as the pads have a stiffer foam on the inside. In comparison, my HD 599 pads last about a year and a half before I need to replace them.

If you have a dac/amp to drive the dt990 250 ohm, then I would definitely go with that

99% of motherboards can drive them just fine, no amp required.

HD 560S?

Generally more pleasing sound to most people, from what I've seen.

>Rule 2: Ask purchase help questions in the Shopping and Setup Help Desk found at > >Requests for product opinions, comparisons, and general purchase advice must be made in the dedicated Shopping and Setup Help Desk found at /r/headphones/about/sticky instead of a new post.

You may also use r/headphoneadvice but please search their resources and familiarize yourself with their rules first before posting.

What questions are considered purchase advice?

  • A request for product suggestions, comparison requests, or opinion requests fall under the purchase advice rule. These can often be found by searching first.

  • Any suggestion or comparison request pertaining to headphones, IEMs, DACs, amps, or other accessories should be directed to the purchase help thread or r/headphoneadvice.

  • Asking the subreddit to help make a decision to buy a product does fall under this rule (e.g. "should I get dekoni pads for my HD650?").

Why does this rule even exist?

What if the link doesn't work?

  • The post can usually be found on the top r/headphones, and titled Shopping, Setup, and Technical Help Desk.
