I'd go for the 990s as they're open. More comfortable for long seshes. Yes I own 880s they're semi open. I love em.

The beyerdynamics have super low frequency response which is good for dnb. Can be pretty difficult/guesswork mixing sub on monitors so the headphones are good as another reference.

I bought the sennheiser hd 280 pro about 6 months ago and I'm really happy with it. the sound is very good and the frequency response is pretty flat I find (I'm no expert :p ), there's no boost on the low frequency or anything like that

I have some Sennheiser HD headphones but I like my $100 Sony MDR7506 headphones a lot more. It just comes down to personal opinion but the Sony 7506's let me hear every detail so clearly, that's why I love em.

Finally i've bought a pair of dt990, i've tested for an hour both dt880 and dt990..
The dt880 have more balanced sound and for me they are also bit more detailed. However i bought the dt990 because this one have more bass, (in my track i overpower too much the bass so this can be an helpful thing when i'm producing.. At the moment the dt990 is great for me, next time i can look for choosing another level of headphones..

Thanks everybody for the help!

I leave a small clip of a work in progress.
