That's not to say the DT880 is a scrub. The DT880 has a really good sound stage, really good detail and sound just as amazing in its own right.
Both headphones sound completely different though. You'll have to literally try both. The K702 can make a poorly mastered song sound terrible. The K702 needs a more powerful amp to carry it. The K702 focuses on complete immersion in the music and is sort of a "I'm sitting down to REALLY examine this song" whereas the DT880 is more of a "I'm listening to this song to rock out." The DT880 is a very forgiving headphone in that respect and has a very different sound than the K702.
Most people would easily take the DT880s over the K702. I would only recommend the K702 to someone searching for a distinct sound and even then, they would have to know what they're looking for and would likely come to the realization themselves.

I went around reading about the K702 and it probably reveals the most detail, good and bad but needs a really good amp to match it so it's probably out. Plus. I'm concerned about the headband. So it's DT880 vs AH-D2000.

Edit: I'm probably going to "sit down and examine" a couple songs since I love to play my favorite music on piano so I have to transpose most of it but that's only a couple songs. I'm sure I can do that with several headphones.

haters gonna hate. i listen to mostly early 90s rap, and it sounds great on my studio beats. works for me because i love the deep bass, but if everyone preferred the same thing, there would only be one set of headphones
