Might be a stupid question but this vs the dt 1990 pro?
The dt 1990 pro new go over $400 and are terrible deal because they sound like they should not cost more than $300. They are picky on low quality songs (use higher quality) but the man problem is that the treble region can get bright and tends to be sibilant and harsh. There's is plenty of bad reviews on them on youtube, you just got to find them. I should have not listened to the hype. (Besides the dt 1770 were very bad that almost everything said they were and I feel sorry for the massdrop hype for those).
The hifiman edition xx on the other hand, the build quality is a bit concerning (crappy wire) but at least sound quality is very good. May not be perfect for your preferences. I will say tonally they will be similar tho between the two.
