Good info. I had ATH-M50 years and gave up on them due to the treble spike and boxy resonance. Recabing to reduce cross talk would be like nice tires on a problematic car to me, but I could respect if others prefer their signature. Judging by Cubase you do audio production also, cool. It'd be good to know what the db meters on that track (with visible cross talk) hit. Small waveforms, I'm thinking very low. I'm a perfectionist and like to scope out every detail. I'd just wonder if it's audible enough to warrant that.
Yeah. Though the ear pads I'd mentioned take care of your other issues, controlling bass you may have felt was excessive.
