Oh thank you on the answer. I really want a pair of headphones...so you don t recommend any of my choice?
Maybe ath m50x rather than ath m40x,or beyer dt 990 32 rather than 770, is 770 better than 990 for mobile? what about akg 553 or senheiser hd 598 sr, that headphones aren t for mobile?

Thank you for your help and patience

When I didn't say anything about your own choices, was because I pretty much agreed on it.
The only thing I disagree with you is on the M50X's. I've used them beforehand and I gotta say that they're way too over hyped. The M40X's does everything they do and doesn't have killer treble.

Now when that's said. The DT990 first of all are open-backs. For portable use they're fine, but they leak a lot of sound ie. not that well suited for public areas.
The same story with the HD598's. These are open-backs, so if you don't care about people hearing what you're listening to, then sure go ahead. Used that headphone myself as well, and it's a fine headphone for the price. However it certainly has the Sennheiser veil. You either love or hate it :).
The AKG's are a good headphone as well. The only real complaint I could have with it, is that it REALLY seals. The pads doesn't really breathe so it can get quite warm around the ears.

Otherwise I'd say just pick whatever you feel like suits you best.
I'd probably stay away from the DT990's and HD598's since they're open-backs.

Cheers

Personally I'd probably go for the DT770's. I really enjoy the relaxing sound signature and the insanely deep base.
Been using the M40X's for portable usage for about 6 months though, and I gotta say that they're just not comfortable enough. Usually start to hurt wearing after maybe 45 minutes of usage.

So the DT770's would be my choice. You can add some HM5 pads to make them feel godly on your face (lol).

Cheers
