Edit: The question is not relevant anymore, I just replied with an update to the situation.
This is more like a "what if..." scenario at the moment, I'm not seriously considering it at least yet. But yea, I got my pair of Beyerdynamic DT-990 Premium headphones, and while they do sound great I'm apparently sensitive to sibilance, because almost any music with vocals becomes sibilant to my ears when the volume is high enough. This is obviously quite disturbing. Instrumental music sounds amazing.
So if I was to change them at some point, what would be a good alternative for around same amount of money as the DT-990 Premiums (~250 euro, I can probably spend a bit more though if it's worth it)? I want the same amount of bass or at least not less, open or closed doesn't matter in the end though I do like the airiness of open. I listen to lots of different metal genres, rock, dubstep, some pop. My source is a Audioengine D1 DAC/Amp and music is on Spotify premium and some CDs.
