Sure. I agree with that. Although I would imagine that there are probably some acoustical advantages that can be taken advantage of with a wider cup area. Pads, of course, can change the soundstage dramatically.

I think what you are describing is the "desirable" soundstage presentation. Who is to say that the presentation of AKG Q701s is more accurate of what was mixed and recorded than say the SR225i, when a good guess is that the Q701s will often create a bigger soundstage affect.
