Yes, using an equalizer you can make HPs sound as good, or bad, as you like.

You can most certainly change the sound signature of a headphone using an equalizer. Sound signature is mainly composed of a 3D plot of frequency vs loudness (dB) vs time. By EQing, you end up changing all of these by directly changing the loudness and possibly the time domain of said headphone. But if you want to get technical, you end up flavoring the sound that is fed to the headphone which the headphone will reproduce the altered song.

I think the problem is not on whether you can change the sound signature, but whether the EQ you want to use is good enough to change the sound signature without degrading the SQ.

EQ is mainly used to adjust sound balance. Sound signature, can't really do it. You can't get the JVC woody tone/timbre in to your single armature with EQ. Of course signature, to me, means unique aspects like one's handwriting signature thus that particular word is used as opposed to sound balance or how all the frequencies are laid out. You can alter certain frequency amounts but getting certain texture amounts or layering and other specific things can't be done w/o more elaborate sound signal processing and effects above using just an equalizer. :D
