Alright looks like I'll go with the DT770s!
This thread helped me make my final decisions: http://www.head-fi.org/t/574707/dt770-vs-m50/15
in addition to everyone's input here!
Keep the comments coming if there are any.
Thanks guys (: I'm so touched!
yes I think the dt770s will do you best for now. 990s I have not heard but the 770s are impressive. I think the 990s have a different sound sig. though
