No software EQ here, but I do use Lucid mode 1 and sometimes mode 2 on my Taboo MKIII.
I will be rollin' some tubes soon.

I don't eq headphones either. I buy ones i like, then i don't have to.
So i had a Sansa Fuze once and the sound quality was flat and lifeless, i had bought it to play Flac files which it supported. I can understand the issue with Sansa and the veiled sound.
Ya man! I never EQ them...No need.
Coming from Speakers the serious headphone is a new area for me. I heard the HD800 at a meet and was blown away. It is the closest thing to sitting in the sweet spot with speakers where everything hits your ears just so perfect that the music/sounds takes you. I do enjoy the speakers more but the HD800 is right up there with soundstage, air, imaging, and detail. It is worth every penny IMO. I have other cans which are great and enjoy very much but don't know if I can say it is worth every penny. (TH900 gets close in terms of fun)
Yeah I hear what you saying and it makes sense. But there are those who will say that any EQ distorts the sound. This will affect the sound before it reaches the headphones of course. But its still the headphones that let you hear the distorted sound whether its amplifier tone controls or software. For me a headphone such as the HD800 is the nearest I've got to a clean window on both my music and my system and so I try to keep it this way :)
Well I've been doing it wrong... I've been switching headphones instead of moving around EQ for more bass or upper mids, etc... - all kidding aside it's how you want to listen to it so tweak on my friend and enjoy "your" perfect sound on the darn near perfect headphone.
