Probably asked this before just looking for more opinions

The DT990s will have a V frequency response, with great bass and highs, and recessed mids. The DT770s will just have a bass emphasis.

Now, if you're more into dubstep electronic, then go with the 770s, because there are basically no high frequencies there, but if you are more into dance, trance, or DnB, I would go for the 990s. The 770s are good for everything, and the 990s will make a few genres sound REALLY good. The DT990s wouldn't be my choice for jazz or acoustic, but for electronic, metal, rock, and basically everything else, they reign supreme.


Personally, I would go for the 990s, because electronic with good highs sounds great.

Nothing for now, but probably within a month or so I'll get a FiiO E7 or something similar. I want to be able to use it with my computer and phone as well.

I'm not really into dub anymore, I've been listening to mostly trance lately so the good treble would be nice to have. I think I'm leaning a lot towards the 990s now.

The DT990 PRO 250 is not for phone use. And you also need an AMP for it. Look for the 32 OHM will be better suited for your use.

I'm aware of that and as I mentioned in my last post I'll be getting an amp when I can afford it. I'll be using the headphones primarily with my computer but I'd like a semi-portable amp for the odd time I use them with my phone.

The DT 990 are pretty big and not very portable. You should look at some Ultrasone HFI 580 or the PRO 550 IMO

I kid, I kid. I've been researching for months and I've narrowed it down to the 990 and 770. The only time I'll be using them on my phone will be road trips so they don't need to be portable. Plus the 990s and 770s are the only ones available locally to me.

In the end it's your choice. Go with what feels right to you.
