Incidentally, I use the wide stereo setting *all the time* as for some
reason I always found my particular headphones too "narrow" sounding. I do
agree with the original poster's comment that the current wide stereo
setting is a bit *too* wide... try listening in wide stereo to an album
with the vocals panned dead center, such as David Bowie's "Aladdin Sane",
and watch in amazement as the vocals submerge to near-inaudibility. So I'll
welcome the graduated setting.

(Incidentally, off-topic trivia, but iTunes' "Sound Enhancer" feature ruins
Aladdin Sane also.)
