My SA5000's cost $350
My K701's cost $300
To my ears the equivilant value for what I hear with the DT990's is close to $600. Sorry Sony and AKG, you got the highs but missed the midrange and bass.
I'll agree, as has been previously stated, the 990 can be sibilant with some recorded/mixed sibilant music and that's where I then choose the well burnt AKGs ie CDs (non SACD) "YES" (Songs) and such complex pieces, or Deep Purple (MIJ) you know, all that older terribly recorded stuff i love
However for stuff like Cat Stevens or even well recorded ZZ top or Elton John (Madman) Cars (Anthology) OMG...Simply fantastic with the DT-990s...Well appreciated indeed
