I tend to use dt880 the most. I prefer it on nearly every recording. The vocals are much better than with dt990. The dt990 can be harsh sometimes, and the hights can be too much on some recordings. It's not a bad headphonet though. When dt990 was the only phone I had, I loved it. Now I just love dt880 more. dt880 was how I thought the dt990 would be.
The only reason I keep dt990 around is that I think that it is better for gaming, and that it really has got synergy with the album Mastodon - Leviathan.
dt880 is a much easier listen, and I find it to be a "fun" listen enough.
EDIT: I just had to try dt990 again. It really is a fun headphone. Some albums feels really powerful with the large soundstage and powerful bass.
EDIT2: I had a listen too Mastodon - Iron Tusk. I can't imagine any headphone suit this song better than dt990. It is really really hard and powerful. On dt880 it is a little bit too lean compared to dt990. Was the same way with sennheiser and Mastodon, just didnt feel right.
