You haven't provided what you are looking for with this upgrade. It also doesn't help that your current ones are open-back and DT's you're looking into are closed-back. There's no mention on what you plan to hook them to - TV, PC, something else? If PC what are they running on, integra? What's your budget?

Shitload of questions people would immediately throw at you because you weren't descriptive enough.

And then they would start discussing about those suggestions they posted :D.

What do you mean with better? Is there something your HD 598 is missing?

Generally the DT-770 are more linear, so not ideal for watching movies if you like lots of bass.

Not that they are lacking but you would need to play a bit with an equalizer to find the right settings you feel comfortable with. If you wanted something for recording and production, the DT-770 or the Sennheiser HD 280 are a good choice and prices seem to have gone down significantly lately.

Personally I prefer capable linear headphones that can do more than just hifi, with some tuning that is.

You could get the dt 990 pros with an amp/DAC like the ifi zen DAC. Might be out of your budget but it'll be worth it.
