Now my feedback!
I tested both headphones on my ES8. The 880 where somehow boring. Too linear, no bass. The 990 where warmer in the tone. Much more bass than the 880. The midrange and top range where compared to the 880 not that clear and somehow "muddy". Both headphones had some good benefits, but I could not decide between the two as I was not really overwhelmed bei either.
After testing I then switched again to my Sennheiser 595 and loved them. Warmer in the overall tone, more bass and clear top end. In comfort the Beyerdynamic beat the sennheisers by miles but I still preffered my sennys 3hearts

And then I ordered myself a new pair of 598 grin

+1, I can't get enough of how good the 598s are.

Did you get a nice discount given that the 599-series has just been released?

I bought them on eBay brand new for 150€.
I have no idea if this is cheap or expensive. All the other prices I found where round about 200€.

I had some time to review my old 595 and the new 598SE.
I realized straightaway that the newer 598 had a warmer tone. Not that clear high notes and also more bass than the 595.
I will not go that far to say I love them, but I prefer the richer bass on the 598. Everything else i a personal preference.
