K702 has a humongous and real soundstage out of the Burson HA-160... slightly smaller soundstage out of the Headroom Ultra Micro

Wait till you plug it in to a Burson
 

 

EDIT: Just adding... good soundstaging requires an amplifier with a heightened sense of space, treble extension and air... this is where my Burson elevates the K702 to a whole new level.

Even if this was true then the Beyer T1 would just be another flavour of Tang

Well, that's some pretty expensive Tang, eh!

Then again, you should consider the amp. DT700 w/ AudioGD C2C sounds so spacious.

1. pioneer se-a1000 - larger stage than a dt880 or k701, though only the select few around here have had them. 

2. k701 -large stage tho i dont care for them much

3. dt880

4. ad900/700/500  all pretty close to a dt880 in stage

5. jvc harx900 -largest closed headphone stage

What on earth are you guys talking about? For the 100th time, headphones DO NOT HAVE SOUNDSTAGE!

 

Recordings may have soundstage. Headphones may have fake spatial effects, due to its design placing the driver too far from the ear. Any set of matched drivers placed on the ear (or in the ear canal) should give you the correct soundstage in the recording, if it has one.

For me the hd800

Then call it 'their ability to reproduce that sound stage', or for short, 'soundstage'.

Headphones don't have bass or treble either, it is the degree they project the signal/source.  You are simply playing semantics.  To sugest that a $1 ear bud (for example) projects the same width and depth of sound as a K701 or HD800 is silly.
