Something high impedance so the sound card doesn't mess with it.

Dt 770/880/990 250 ohm.

Are the 770, 880, and 990's all open ear?

770's are closed, 880's are semi-open, and 990's are open.

If you are using these headphones at home 99% of the time, get open headphones. Better sound stage for gaming. The DT990's have a lot of bass, recessed mids and high treble. The 880's are more of the same but the bass and treble are smoother.

The closed ones isolate outside noise, the semi-open has better bass, and the open has the best soundstage. Get open for gaming, or closed if your listening environment is noisy.

We're recommending them because of the soundcard, but they are pretty good headphones regardless.

There's no point. The only difference between the two is color and about $50.
