It does very well, the T90 is the linear upgrade to the DT 880. Meaning if you can GO T90, other wise you'll wind up like me trying to save up for the T90 xD.
But yea the DT 880 and T90 share a very simmilar sound, ofc the T90 does everything the DT 880 does well a bit better. So, in effect anything the T90 is good with, the DT 880 is as well. Just ofc the T90 is better... but only by small margins
Oh I hate to say this but... take some of that extra cash sell off your EF2A and get your self a Schiit Modi and Schiit Vali! I LOVE my Vali with the DT 880, not to mention the EF2A is a nice combo but... I would bet my money that the schiit stack offers a better sound overall. A higher quality dac and in the very awesome Vali!

Again that depends on teh version, My REV1 was very wide and very airy, but I'd imagine an open headphone would be wider, how ever a lot of members here with newer HP 100 report them being warmer, which would detract from the treble
Still is the Hp200 almost HE 400 like in sound?
