Since my AKG Q701 went faulty I'm listen to my other headphones, the vintage Beyer 880-600ohms 1980 edition these days. I'm feeling guilty I barely gave these any listening time, I even offered to give them to a friend (thankfully he declined!). So wonderfully neutral, and lots of air between things due to the open-back grille. They are less engaging than the Q701's though (but definitely not analytical!). They do really reveal those micro artifacts in badly mastered music but I really appreciate their honesty. These 880's are quite the acquired taste.
