Tried the trial with my HD800 setup. To be fair it was "out of my head", but it wasn't the frontal soundstage that is the speaker experience. Also a lot of the details seemed to be lost. Just my observations. Maybe it was too much to hope for a binaural reproduction.
I do recommend that people try all the presets because some presets will work better than others for different people.
Just to explain, the measurements are dependent on the shape of your outer ear, your head, etc. While many of the measurements were done using my ears, some presets are done with different people's ears. The closer your ear shape is to the ears of the people used to do the measurement, the better the effect.
If your ears are just too different from any of the ears I used for measurement, then you may not get the optimal sound. So I admit there is a percentage of the population that none of the presets will work optimally. However, after doing hundreds of demos to different people, I have found that more than 90% of the people who listen to Out Of Your Head report that the effect sounds very good.
For people who are willing to come to San Diego or have me come to them, I can do a custom measurement using their ears. This will result in a preset that is extremely accurate and sounds very close to the actual speaker system. I even measure and EQ your headphones while they're sitting on your ears for even more accuracy.
I realize this is not practical for most people, but it is an option.
