Should i go for DT 990 250ohm or DT 770 80ohm?

Hey, so could you guys please tell me what would suit best for me ? I don´t care about isolation,have big ears:(, i don´t mind open/closed,only for home use. I would propably buy Asus xonar DG for both of those, i know xonar dg can ony power up to 150ohm but do you think it would be bad choice for dt 990 250ohm ? If you have another choice for cheap soundcard that can power up dt 990 250ohm tell me :); also i think i would prefer more to hear the bass and less feel the bass. I mostly listen to dnb,soundtracks,proggresive house,alternative rock... something like this

Heya,

 

The DT990 PRO 250ohm with the Fiio E10 would be the direction I would go (I would skip using a sound card, get something more universal and separate from the computer).

 

Very best,

bump, if i would get xonar dg would it be better to get dt 770 80ohm that would get fully powered or dt 990 250 ohm that won´t get 100% power ?

:( Do you think they are both good for my type of music ?

I would put all three in the same league I'd personally go with AKG due to a better treble and faster sounding. All three are good choice if you want chilled sound with big soundstage and good bass go beyers, if you want a faster more clearer mid range phone go AKG550


AKG are out of my price range, so beyer .. But which one :) I will propably go for DT 990, now i need to think about if Xonar DG will be enough or if i should raise my budget and get Fiio E10
