HD 598 or DT 990 for Hip-Hop production?

I have read so many reviews on both models of these cans and am sick of looking at specs. I am at the point where I need real users experiences that are a little more current. Would you suggest the HD 598's for hip hop production or DT 990's?

I like the DT 990's because I have read they have a more pronounced bass and the HD 598 bass is lacking but I am unsure if that means the bass is barely there or just not similar to closed back headphones.

I am skeptical with the 990's because of the brightness of them. I like the better low end but the fatiguing high end does cause some concerns.

Which would you all say is the better option. (I also have an amp that can power both)
