Agreed. What sounds like "good staging" wearing headphones ≠ what sounds high fidelity with on-axis speakers in an equilateral triangle in a good room. "Headstage depth" might really be blobby distant band 50 feet away trash while wide open beyond your head could be diffuse garbage. To preempt all audiofool whining: No recording worth listening to extensively is mixed binaurally for headphones anyway. Those that are are gimmicky cash grabs like those 5.1 home theater remixes of classic rock.
