It's very nice of you to ask, but I'm a very limited descriptive writer. Simply not that good at at. It's almost ironic, as my home forum has a rather larger reviewer population (the actual kind) who often post rather intricate pieces, so I refer to my comments about gear as "impressions." lol
Edit: some comparative impressions - ie. 612 vs other cans I own that can be had for similar money
AD900x: less full on the bottom, but with similar articulation, very clear mids - no contest, really - and slightly peaky highs. More forward sounding, a lighter, happier (if you will) tonal balance
DT990pro: More full on the bottom with somewhat loose bass in comparison (especially without an amplifier), relatively recessed, but very clear mids. IME, the top end greatly depends on the partnering amplifier. Fed direct from my laptop, for example, it's overly bright. Not the case with something as inexpensive as a BCL clone from China. Partnered with a good amplifier, these would be my personal choice for ~$160.Edited by Shaffer - 12/16/13 at 9:49pm
