So, several people have described the HD800's SS as being very vast. I don't find it that vast, tbh, but it's certainly very open, and I think this is often more dependent on the album you happen play—how it was recorded, placement of mics, etc—, your state of mind at any given time, and other variables.
Okay, then, since you put me on the spot, here you go: to me, if the HD800 is, say, a 10, the K3003 is a 9 and the ER4S is a good 6 (or 6.5).
Yes, absolutely. No misconceptions here about any earphone/headphone being significantly "spacious sounding" all by itself. Air, space, imaging, ambience, etc. are 95% contained in the recording (and usually have been intentionally, artificially added during mixing/mastering).
And thank you for your subjective ratings. Thats what I wanted to know
