Yes. But it’s presented differently. As much as I love the expansive soundstage of the 800S, I wouldn’t necessarily call it accurate. It tries to spread out everything that is piped through them. So when you listen to music that is very complex like orchestral and rock opera type stuff like Pink Floyd, it sounds freaking amazing. But when you listen to a solo artist singing unplugged with just one acoustic guitar, they still try to make it sound like the music is surrounding you. But that’s not how it should sound. It should sound like there’s one dude sitting in front of you with an acoustic guitar and no microphone. In that scenario, the soundstage should sound intimate. So I’d say that the 800S will sound more expansive than the Arya with the layering of instruments having more space between them, but with it not being as accurate for some types of music. The Arya is great with layering and with a more realistic size and presentation, but painted across a smaller canvas. Which is better? That will solely be based on preference. Even though the 800S can make things sound artificially wide, I still Iove it. Which is more universally accurate? Arya And if a new planar comes out that also makes music sound artificially wide like the 800S, I will take it. But I’m an admitted soundstage freak. I don’t care which is more accurate. With all things being equal, I’ll take the larger and wider soundstage headphone every time.
