I listen to Rock/Metal. I find the DT880 brighter than other hp I try, but not unbearable. I tried Vmoda-100, HD600, HD650 and end up liking the DT880 & HD600. They're very enjoyable for these genres. very satisfy that I bought this hp.
Except for this 1 pop song though, I had to take the hp off because the treble beat was too much for me the first time I hear it. Try this song with your other hp/iem (play in HD), if you don't find it too bright then I think you're good.
Thx for the link. Haven't heard Boa/not seen Inu Yasha in a while. I wish Spotify would include Japanese music so I can listen to more jpop. Guess I'll scour Youtube.
