Most massive: Sennheiser HD 800 Best soundstage: ZMF Verite (ziricote) And yes, there is a difference. The soundstage of the HD 800 is huge, but sounds exaggerated, diffuse, and vacuum-like. The Verite has a stage that is comparable in size, but has an immediacy to it that makes it very believable and natural. Plus the Verite is just much easier to listen to tonality-wise; it doesn't have huge treble peaks like the HD 800.

The stages of both headphones is really comparable in size. It's hard to explain without having heard them. Let's put it this way; the HD 800 makes my classic rock recordings sound kind of like they were performed in a huge concert hall (minus the echo and reverb). The Verite, while having large stage, doesn't do this when it's not called upon, but does have enormous stage (yet it does have some reverb and coloration of timbre). Your original post asked for most massive and then "best," so my answer to most massive soundstage was the HD 800, and the best being the Verite. The HD 800 has a SDR mod with the rug liner. Yes, Verite is definitely the more colored headphone. I actually really don't recommend people buy ZMF headphones in general unless you auditioned or know what you're getting into; I know some people who barf at the sound of the Verite. This starts going into sins of commission/omission though, which is a whole other topic.

Thats what I thought and I was right. It make sense thought, completely agreed. Even me havent heard I at least able to give the correct impression that people heard. Correct me if am wrong, Verite is the coloured and unique sounding of the HD 800 ? The answer is somewhat then. What kind of mod do you do with the HD800 ? Anyway, as for ZMF and of course, they are a set of headphone that are unique, enjoyable and magical experience, its not someone we consider as reference. Not the best but another high end cans to your collection.

Yeah I agree eventhough I have not heard it only through frequency response graph and review. Am referring to the largest soundstage not sound quality.

I pretty much agree with Kith. But if you are interested in Soundstage specificly you will also find Amps affect soundstage.

You doubt i agree with Kith? Wow. Because the other fact is set in stone & it'd be funny if you did.

Sound stage is not universal, it depends on your ears. Also keep in mind that a big sound stage with poor imaging/placement is...garbage. Below are the three I've experienced with large soundstage, and good to amazing imaging. Fidelio X2 (Imaging is okay) HD 800 (Imaging is amazing) Mod House Argon (Imaging is...weird)

Not sure. But I think the reason why they compare to them because both planars is somewhat bassy and wide.

Best imaging and soundstage headphones for positioning and immersion?
I was looking at He4XX and K7XX mainly, but I was going to use these mostly for gaming and some music, which means overall imaging is the most important, but I also wouldn't want a headphone that's too boring. Thank you for any help. Edit: My previous headphones were Sennheiser G4ME One's, I'd want comparable or better performance.

An upgrade to my Little Dot MKII
I made the decision to upgrade my modest Little Dot MKII Tube Amplifier this past week and it just got here yesterday. This is a used piece of gear, it's the first generation Woo Audio WA6. I wanted to go with Silver as it would match my Solid State Burson Conductor 3 Performance Headphone Amp/DAC/Pre-Amp, as well as the Schiit Lokius I also picked up recently. I wound up with Black; it was in the best condition of those I saw available, it was priced better and it came from an audio dealership with a brick & mortar store which displayed a working telephone number and an A+ rating with the BBB so I knew that I was probably safe in dealing with the gentleman. The Lokius is brand new. What I've learned is that I am going to have to do some figuring out how to deal with all of this new stuff, including how to get it all onto my 6 foot desk along with my lamp and modem. Apparently the Lokius has to be connected between Amp and DAC, so it would fit in between...
