I was responding to both your point (on imaging), and that of Misterrogers (he commented on the bass).
For starters, I completely agree with you about the LCD-2s, which don't strike me as anything special considering their price.
But I couldn't disagree more about the HD800s. I find their resolution, purity of tone, sound cohesion and imaging to be 2nd to none. But everyone looks for different things in their music. I think the HE-500s and HE-6s come close on resolution and purity of tone, and surpass the HD800s on bass impact. But I much prefer the way sound "hangs together" (i.e., cohesiveness) on the HD800s and their imaging sends chills down my spine every time I hear them. That said, I can completely understand if someone were to prefer the HE-500s, the HE-6s or even the LCD-2s and D7000s, which have their own unique attributes (warmth, roundness, laid-back presentation for the LCD-2s; bass, lush presentation, impact and comfort for the D7000s). But it's a bit like arguing whether chocolate or vanilla is objectively "better".
