however if you want absolute neutrality...
please check out the nikon d3200 ......

I bought DT880 Pro and find them better than DT990 Pro that I just sold. Main difference is soundstage, wider on DT880 PRO, also crispier bass, not muffling the overall sound. I think most of the difference is from the shape of earcups. DT880 are still bass heavy headphones.
I had AKG K701 and they are cold sounding with no reverberation of sound, good for orchestras, not good for jazz at all as some say unless big bands, orchestras like Quincy Jones etc. On K701 it's like listening to music in open field so no club atmosphere.
