Can someone please explain 'clockwise-tilted across the entire range, so that output diminishes with increasing frequency.' Im quite confusing about 'clockwise-titled' with it meaning.
What does clockwise-tilted across the entire range, so that output diminishes with increasing frequency mean?

It means that the frequency response is tilted downwards starting from the low frequencies.
Think of a line with the equation:
Y(x) = -x
For a headphone this will be much less drastic and the treble may only be a few dB below the bass. This tends to give headphones a warm tilt in that the treble is slightly rolled off compared to the bass. The HD650 is an example of such a headphone.
These terms are very subjective which is why I try to describe the actual frequency response rather than using a term that many find hard to grasp initially.
I think clockwise is even worse because it depends on the perspective. Clockwise from behind the screen or in front? In the case you are referring it is most likely that it means a downward tilt in the frequency response.
