First post, I figured I would contribute something. I recently got a pair of Sennheiser HD 598's, and I adore them. It took me about an hour to get my EQ to get perfect, balanced sound with good treble and little extra bass oomph. I'm no basshead but I don't like flat music either. I tried the same settings for my HD 419s just for the heck of it, it made them sound 5x better. I used these for VLC but it should be fine for most EQs.
