I assumed the very same thing, Slaughter. That's why I went for the DT880s prior to getting the K701s (traded with another Head-Fier).
The DT880s offer the BEST sound I have heard for gaming, but sadly, their directional cues were lacking compared to the 770 pros, Ad700s, and K70x. I'm not the only who who thinks this.
Let's say you're playing Modern Warfare 2, the DT880s have a tough time differentiating front and rear sounds. Everything sounds forward, as opposed to all around you. Got attacked from behind quite a few times because I couldn't tell if the sound was supposed to be in front or behind me. Never had that problem with the other 3.
