Along the way from some Sennheiser HD515 just out of a CDplayer I came to the conclusion that EQ is compromising the sound of any given headphone.I have now the HE500 and LCD2Rev2 and instead of EQ I tweak it to my liking by experimenting with amps,cables and most importantly DACs and giving my brain enough time to get used to a sound signature.Works for me!
Sure works for me too. Anyone who doubts the EQ power of the brain, please have a look, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G-lN8vWm3m0&feature=youtu.be
Whenever someone tells me that their amp or dac sounds SO much better after it burned in I say; "that's great, enjoy it" when I really mean; "It's your brain that burned in, silly". In the end what it sounds like to you is what counts. If EQ sounds good to you, then I would not argue with that.
Personally I can't stand the thought of EQ but that is just MY silly bias.
