 Sweet! I guess I can cross it off my list and move on to something else. :P
I think the main reason it takes a little while to sense whether a headphone is really for you or not is that you have to have enough time for your head to develop its "fuzzy filters" for that headphone. That just takes time. 
 Yup. Pretty much every day. 
Dude, I been doing this a long time. I've used parametric EQs plenty.  There's stuff up there, and it's pretty easy to hear on good headphones.    I listen to headphones quite often with regard to the amount of energy they portray in the top octave.  Lots of hurky jerky measurements in the top octave, and like you say that matters not too much,  but the total amount of energy there matters quite a bit.  I can hear a headphone that's too hot above 10kHz no...
Ha!   You'll be hanging for longer than that. I've just got the latest LCD-3 and the new LCD-2 will be in on Monday. They need to get measured and listened too in comparison with the older vesions I have... ...and then, because there geeks just like you hanging on in the LCD-X, LCD-2, and LCD-3 threads, I have to review the LCD-X and it's fambly relations, before I get to the PM-1 review. And I have to compare the PM-1 with the LCD-2 I'll be getting Monday for a...
Spent an hour or so playing with the 8kHz and 16kHz sliders of the EQ on an AK240 driving the PM-1.   Even to these old ears it was amazingly easy to hear adjustments in these areas.   There might not be a large quantity of information there, but a proper sprinkling of it graces the edges of cymbals and strings and such in an awefully lovely way.   There's plenty of information to be appreciated in that top octave.
Ha ha ha ha ha!!!   You guys are funny.
Just posted my measurements here. 
Okie dokie, here's my measurements.   The first one is the Leather pads, velour on the second. Click the image to get the .pdf           I'll have a LOT to say about these measurements when I do the review, but for the moment I'll draw your attention to the 2 little blips on the impedance curve at 250Hz and 400Hz. You'll also note a rise in THD+noise at those frequencies. These are blips due to a dual primary driver resonance---one is the diaphragm as a whole,...
Over-simplistically, yes. They're more "U" shaped than overly warm.   At loud levels they fall apart in the bass, but at low levels they're gorgeous.   I suspect my recommendation will raise a few hackles...the SRH1540 is not a perfect headphone.                                 Not that I've ever heard one.
