I have them both and would say that the DT177X is the more musical of the two. The DT1990 is very analytical and delivers thus far more detail in a wider soundstage. I use the DT1990 for gaming and the DT177X to listen to music (mobile). The DT1990 has a higher impedance, too (250 Ohm vs 32 Ohm). All in all I'm very happy with both cans.

a lot of the comparisons where most forums discuss will give you a question or two back... 1990's are open-back, require a bit more power to drive, but sound greatly balanced across frequencies. these 177x's are closed back, a little mid bass boosted, sensitive to amplification (takes on amp characteristics) and do sound great as well... think of a difference in flavors, or buying some lasagna but from different stores.
