I understand what you mean. Let me explain. I have a certain EQ preference. It doesn't matter which headphone, it usually going to match around the Denon D-2000 "flat" EQ. The reason I matched the EQ on all three headphones was to try and determine the different soundstage between headphones. It is difficult to compare soundstage if bass, mids and treble are all different.
Also, even if I prefer the Denon usually near the flat EQ, it is still not perfect. EQ is always required to tailor the music to my preferences. However, I will not EQ every song, obviously because i want to just enjoy the music. But yes, every headphone I have owned has some EQ settings to it.
Hope that makes sense.
