I know there are a many comparison out there between these two headphone, but I'd love to get some input in comparing them for a very specific purpose.
I need new headphones and I'd use them for listening (almost exclusively classical music). Chamber music's high on the list, string quartets, piano music, some symphonic or concerto music too.
Secondly I'd use them for some mixing. So I need the most detailed, analytical phone I can get. Instrument separation is very important too.
So I've narrowed the search down to either the Beyerdynamic Dt 880 or the Akg K701. The latter has a nice wide soundstage, but it isn't as deep as I'd wish. Plus compared to the Dt880 they definitely lack some punch in the bass.
What do you think, knowing that both are great headphones, which one would be better suited for these specific tasks?
