Welcome to Headphone Heights, the place for all your ear bud discussion

If one must have speaker imaging,

then one will not get it from headphones, period. Senn HD800 will give you decent imaging localization and depth, better than HD6xxx or any AKG, but it still sounds like headphone imaging in the end. Ditto for various electrostats. AKG K1000 is kind of more like it, but not really in the end. If you rotate out the drivers to more closely resemble speakers, bass diminishes too much, affecting even midrange IME.

But I enjoy them all anyway because they have their headphone virtues, which speakers cannot achieve, either.
