Recieved both in the mail today,
Have been listening for the last 3 hours, and in short I cannot say either are far beyond my athm50's but as of now the Dt990 seems to be two full steps ahead of the 325i, will post a more in depth review tonight and an additional review after they've been given a few days to burn in and properly amped. However, my initial impression is this-
Dt990's-massive bass, serene highs, beautiful soundstage, fairly aggressive in the mids but not its strength, however music overall seems much stronger because of the balance and soundstage
325i-decent bass, shrill highs, decent soundstage (moreso than i thought it would be) gorgoeus, gorgeous mids that actually seem to be its weakness, to much is sacrificed to achieve it I feel, and the overall the presentation of music seems much weaker because bass and highs aren't there to support it
Curious to hear your thoughts.
