Currently own the 770s and Magni/Modi stack

 

I would say to buy the Dt990 Pro 250-Ohm headphones and sell off the DT770s.

Unless you need to block outside noise or keep others from hearing the audio coming from your headphones, I think you will end up just using the DT990s.

I don't think the 990 has any more punch than the 770.

 

Maybe save up a bit more and buy a used T5/T70/T90/etc?

I'll look into the t70/t90. Any experience on the HE-400s?

The HE-400 has pretty good bass, but the midrange feels a bit sucked out. I guess you could say it feels a bit similar to the DT990 in the regard.

Anything in the sub $350 range that has a similar sound signature to the 770s with a neutral mid range and a tighter/more impact-full bass? I don't necessarily need forward mids but I don't want them to be distant either

Nothing that immediately comes to mind... the Philips Fidelio X1 sorta maybe, though it's more of a lush tone.

How about HD600? They have tight bass and they produce the perfect bass for me. Fidelio X1 considered as a bassy headphone for me. But I love the balance sound. Just like Amperior, more power in bass without sacrifice mids and high.

I don't like on ears and I have mixed feelings in regards to what I've heard about the X1s. I've been considering the HD600s as well, I'd like to somehow demo the HD600s and the HE-400s with the hybrid pads
