Cool. Interesting though. You and I differ in that I prefer to trust people who have made a lifelong career out of recording rather than my inexpert fumblings.
If you are fortunate enough to have excellent ears and knowledge great but I know that I do not. I can tell when something is "right" and when something is "wrong" but the tiny increments and adjustments that lie in between are beyond me. Maybe PM if you want to continue...
I just felt I had to reply one more time as this reply is kind of like an anti-thesis to my message. My point is that objectively defined "right" sound isn't necessarily what you will enjoy hearing the most. For me that would be lack of bass and maybe a bit too lean and "polite" sound. I like it more aggressive (do not confuse with bright sound). If your senses/brain or whatever that is actually the cause for your headphone listening and makes you enjoy hearing something more than another headphone or sound signature has to offer, then great! Then it's the "right" for you, irrelevant of whether it can be classified objectively "right" or not. That is of course assuming we both have the goal of getting as much satisfaction from music listening as possible, at least I do.
From here though let's keep it to PM, sorry for the offtopic talk.
