I think he is talking about the newer version 990.

That's exactly the trouble with the first gen DT990. Over the years, the stock ear pads became as flat as a pancake. And you can't buy new ones. So you have either to stuff the stock pads, or use alternatives. Each choice will have an impact on the perceived sound.

No matter which pad I used, I found them too sibilant.

Stuffing the pads isn't a problem, since cotton wool is cheap and works well acoustically with the old pads. Regarding the effect on sound overall, your physical ear will impact the sound waves to an extent well in excess of the manufacturer's specs - ie. they didn't design the signature with your particular ear's filtering effects in mind. The sound is 'compromised' whichever phones you have and whatever your pad options, so notions of "the way it was meant to be" can only slow you down.
