It could be simply down to the age of the monitors - you probably didn't notice the changes with your old one until you hooked up your new one along side it. You might need to set the colour/brightness/contrast/temperature settings individually on one or both monitors to compensate for this.
What exactly are the sRGB color profiles and how do I check them (probably the settings of the monitors themselves)?
I'm aware it could be the age of the monitors, but I don't believe it should be as bad as this at this stage. I've been messing with the color/brightness/contrast settings with no result, though I couldn't find one for the temperature.
Edit: Actually, I just found the temperature, which I saw as the color settings. Sadly those didn't help either.
Edit 2: I found the sRGB color profile on the old monitor, and understand what you mean now. Using it makes no difference, and the new one doesn't seem to have it. Both are on the default manufacturer mode, and switching and matching the modes doesn't seem to improve it.

I suspected it's something in that direction, but sadly I couldn't find anything in the settings for that.
