Beyerdynamic DT 990 pro (250 ohm) vs Sennheiser HD 560s

Which headphone is better for listening to music, mostly instrumental rock for artists like Guthrie, Steve Vai, Joe Satriani, Plini etc ?
A comparison would really help me decide which one to buy.
I require this only for listening to music (no mixing or recording).

Thanks

I own the DT990 (250-Ohm & 600-Ohm), but I'm thinking the HD560 is something I would take over the DT990.

What do you like about the HD 560s ?
Where does the dt990 lack compared to the hd560s?
The DT990 has a strong bass/treble (U shaped sound), which slightly overshadows the mids, but the mids are clear.
Good for use with a receiver, gives a movie theater like sound, popular with FPS gamers.
I own the Sennheiser HD558 and HD58X and I would normally prefer to use them, over the DT990.
DT990 250-Ohm's bass to me is more about being loud, then being detailed and I prefer detail.
HD560 seems to come with a more neutral sound, which means you should be able to wear them for long periods of listening.

This information will help a lot.
Thanks!!!
