Bigger/expensive != better sound in your room.
After 20+ years of owning high end speaker-based systems, I feel I probably do know what you mean, but to get back to the OP...
Some people can migrate more easily than others from the "true" 3D loudspeaker sound stage to the initially disconcerting head stage. Nobody else can tell you how you will get on with that transition. There's factors above sound stage to consider - e.g. Operakid's post on page 1.
For me, the head stage can become magical with my 007 setup, but as chesebert also alluded to, you have to work at it with ALL aspects of the system. For example, I've found that a high end Power Conditioner has greatly improved the magic for me. With loudspeakers, you have to faff around with positioning of speakers and sweet spots. With headphones you don't have that particular issue, but instead it seems to be even more important to carefully choose the rest of your system - because the head stage doesn't become truly magic until you've removed any upper frequency noise and "grain" that gets directly injected into your ears. And that, unfortunately, usually costs lots of money.
One area that still doesn't quite do it for me on headphones though, is large scale orchestral music. However good the head stage gets, it can't quite recreate that scale.
