Two pairs of phones to compliment DT990's Studio Headphones

Two pairs of phones to compliment DT990's : RECOMMENDATIONS

Hi

I have a pair of Beyerdynamic DT990 Pro's and I need to buy two long distance collaborators some phones as well.

What would you recommend in the DT990 range that would compliment them so that instead of three of the same picture we have a bit more variety?

Also, I'm not super thrilled with the 990's. I had, and apparently lost, the 880's which I liked more. On the 990's everything sounds OK to a fault.

Get a pair of 770's and a pair of Audio Technica ATM50x.

Both of these are fine for tracking and mixing.

Superlux HD681 complement them great, they are much more mid forward and let you hear what is going on there much better, good for checking some harsh mid frequencies. Don't let the price fool you, I've picked some Superlux phones over £100 + top branded ones from the likes of AKG & Sennheiser.

ATH50 won't complement them well, DT990 just vastly better in those low/low mid frequencies where the ATH50 are much more muddy down there, you won't hear anything new on the ATH50's.
