Sorry for saying stereo instead of two channel. How misleading of me!
At any rate, I give up. The OP clearly loves his stereo headphones and has no interest in discussing how the brain processes sound and why multiple speakers may provide a different experience from his headphones.
As I stated any and all responses are falling on DEAF ears, so responding to OP's posting are senseless.
