Oh, I thought crossfeed was supposed to emulate soundstage? But yeah it does seperate very well. Which is why I like it with my speakers. But I dunno, maybe it was just the first impression of the HD700 that made me feel differently. The M-Stage does have a harder thud type bass to it and it pushes the mids more forward. Maybe that's just what I'm hearing.
Sometimes when listening to headphones you might notice sounds you're supposed to be hearing at 12 o'clock to you you might be hearing at 11 and 1, at the same time you're getting much more of a sense or 4 and 8 o'clock than you would vs speakers, as I understand it that is what crossfeed aims to rectify I thought the hd700 was one of those headphones
now if this was happening to with a pair of speakers you'd just turn you speakers in towards each other a touch, that is how a good crossfeed should work, and is why lots of headphones angle drivers I believe.
Along with my ha-1 I have an audio-gd nfb27h and I think that has more bass impact than the ha-1, I felt the 700's made up for that with the ha-1 just seems out tastes differ there, and the combination of the ha-1 sometimes plastic sounds and the hd700's love for burying singers and way over hyping cymbals and hihats did get to me in the end
