Comparing the DT 990 600ohm to the Akg k7xx really depends on what you are driving them with. In my case i matched the DT 990 with a tube amp (and tubes) that brought out the mids, took the edge off the treble and tightened the bass...they blew the k7xx away (i rolled different sets of tubes with the K7xx...no perfect match). The AKG are great value and fairly easy to drive (though tougher than their specs seem to suggestion) but i think the 990 600's scale better as you start introducing higher end equipment to drive them. Different strokes.
Alrighty, I had planned on getting a Schiit mangi 2 amp as a start, would that provide some great sound quality?
What tube amp did you power with the DT 990? Do you think powering it with an AC powered O2 desktop amp would have similar results? Also was your comparison between them for movies and casual gaming?
