I'm not sure whether to get DT880 or DT990. Most comparisons between the two note the difference in the bass. The 990 has more bass than the 880. But Grado SR225 are the only headphones I've ever owned, so I'm hoping someone who has owned both Grados and a Beyerdynamic can tell me where the SR225 ranks in terms of bass compared to the 880 and 990? Grados are simply the only reference point I have. Thanks!
Also, with my Grados, I have my soundcard's equalizer set at a slight U shape, with the mids decreased and the lows and highs increased. If I don't have the equalizer set like that, everything just sounds horrible to me. It's hard to explain. It's more "airy"/"muddy" without the equalizer. Given that that's my preference, does that give any indication of whether the 880 would be better or the 990?
