imo a neutral headphone is more flexible than a lets say bass heavy headphone, a neutral can be tuned to be bass heavier or have sparkle in treble, you cant make a bassheavy headphone into a sparkly headphone, (example, boosting the bass of a srh940, desasterous distorded bass, and treble boosting a bass heavy XB700, will give you harsh treble, but then again it depends on the individual headphone itself)
*250 band eq plugin for winamp*
with this eq (plus a Hippo Box amp with bass boost setting, compensated in the graph) i managed to get them to have satisfactory subbass response, and add sparkle into the treble, and remove quite a good amount of the veil in these headphones (yes i know the bassboost is very severe in this graph, but oh well it works, subbass kicks hard now, midbass boomyness is gone, vocals are deeper and more crisp sounding, and imo more natural)
eq is powerful
but has limits.
not to forget this tuning is done for EDM ,electronic music and Dn'B, so it may not work with softer genres of music
