I am currently using a qpad 90, which is really good, but its to small and hurt my ears.
 
I also bought a sound card for my pc, a creative sound blaster z bulk edition.
 
I want to spend 150€ on my new headphones. Mostly listining to electro music of any kind.
 
Game sound is not that important, but I sometimes play CSGO and Battlefield 4.
 
Are there any other options besides DT770 and DT990, which look better?
 
Also, should I switch my sound card for a Asus Xonare DX? I still can send the sound card back, I bought my headset/sound card this month recently.

The Xonar DX and SB-Z both use the same CS4398 DAC chip.
The SB-Z is better for driving headphones, over the Xonar DX, so keep the SB-Z.
 
AKG K612 Pro (120-Ohm) headphones, 133 Euros.

I read, that they are unconfortable and arent compareable to the DT770/990

I usually see good reviews on the K612 Pros.

But it's just one option for you to look into.
Between the DT770s and DT990s, I would take the DT990s.
I usually prefer open headphones, unless I need to block outside noise (I live in a apartment).
