How do the HD598Cs compare to headphones like the m50x and DT770 pro 80ohms?

Most reviews compare these headphones to the HD598, but I haven't seen much comparing them to other closed-backs of similar price.

I had the m50x for a few years and used them daily, so I am familiar with their sound. I have a pair of DT770 pro 80ohm in my home, though not mine, I can use them to listen and understand the comparisons.

Can anyone help me shed some light on these?

Thank you!

The HD598CS should have a more neutral sound, compared to the more lively U shaped sound of the DT770.

I think the DT770's Pro 80's are super fun headphones.. I have had a pair for ~3yrs ...I also have had the M50's for a bit longer.. the sound signature is similar..  but the DT770's are better in over all sound and certainly crush the M50's in comfort.
 
If you like the M50's and just want to step up a bit in the V shape sound .. the DT770's are a good choice.
