These are very easy to drive to good volume in my opinion. No issues whatsoever out of my MacBook air and iPod touch 5th Gen. My guess is you either listen to music way too loudly or you're not used to the soundstage. It's very good on this can and can be the source of things sounding distant.

Is the dt 990 880 and the 770 or the HE400 a upgrade over the x1

That REALLY depends. If you like the bass the x1 delivers, then probably not. The closest would be the DT770 (I haven't heard the 880), but I found the x1's a lot more engaging and IMO the HE400 was more thin than I expected. Beyers are pretty bright generally and the X1 is realllllly warm.

Having the X1 and the HE-400, the two are quite different and indeed depends on what you like.

The X1 is a warmer sounding headphone, the HE-400 bass is more neutral but extending quite deeper which results in a less warm but deeper and textured bass. I personally like the bass on the HE-400 better.

Comfort is better on the X1. (though not that bad on the HE-400 as some make it to be).

Don't have any Beyers so can't comment on those.
