Beyerdynamic DT880 pro Vs AKG K701 for mixing

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Need a decent flat set of cans for mixing at home. After hours of searching I think it's between these bad boyz!

Just wondering what most people would recommend?

Beyerdynamic DT880 pro -£185
AKG K701 - £165

Any help or recommendations would be appreciated.

I vote for the DT880 Pro - more accurate bass, more even midrange.

The K702 sounds to me more natural and way more balanced, with the 880 you can hear some upper mids/ treble spikes (very annoying) as well there is a minimum depth in the soundstage of the 880...mostly L-to-R soundstage. Beyer fixed the depth in the T1, but they kept the upper mids spikes as a Beyer sounds signature.

 

Here is more info,

So there you go, OP. Now you know what two people think and, as usual on Head-Fi, it's the exact opposite of each other. tongue.gif

lol So true! Thanks Acix, I have had a good read through those threads. T1 is a bit more than I wanna spend, trying to keep under £200 if poss.
