I know there is a few such thread and I have read them thoroughly...
and have also tested both the cans
and know first hand that
880 = neutral good mid, not so good high and low, and bass doesnt have that wide feeling
990 = good high good low, not so good mid, bass have that wide feeling
 
have been considering for 2 months and have been going to the shop to test for more than 10 times.....
very difficult to decide would like to hear some opinion and advise from long time users
 
bottom is.....
i quite like 990 with the wide open bass feel... but the highs are a bit too strong and mid is not good
on the 880 i like the mid and high but the low just doesnt have that wide open sound that I am looking for like in the 990
 
they are not cheap cans, that's why I have been considering for so long....

Get the Audio Technica ATH-AD900X, they are $200.
And as they are only 40-Ohm, will work plugged into anything (headphone amplifier optional).
