Yeah, just also came to say that a lot of these are NOT neutral. I think people are just coming by to vote for their precious ATH-M50 that they personally own, but it shouldn't be included here. Same goes for the K612 and especially the beyer COP. There's no way anyone could listen to the COP and call them neutral.
The frontrunners should be the HD600, HE-400i, and DT880. The HD600 has been deemed one of the most natural and neutral headphones of all time, with the only downside being a low end roll off. DT880 have a bit of bite on the high end. The HE-400i is one that I have not personally heard, but gets rave reviews. This is also the one that I would want to see on massdrop. The HD600 goes on sale often enough that you could wait for a discount. The hifiamn products rarely go on sale, if ever, and this is the type of product that massdrop really helps make more affordable.

Have you even heard the K612? Very similar response to the HD600. Less analytical than the K702.

I have, and remember the K612 having a little too much mid-bass and a slight thickness in the lower-mids. It's not that they aren't a good headphone, but I wouldn't choose them over others in the same price range.
