Default Headphones sound correction? Possible?

Greetings to You all.
I've got a problem and want to ask You for advice.
I had beyerdynamic dt235 and sansa clip+ as a portable set.
But yesterday it were crushed by car.
Then I found my old sennheiser HD428 headphones with a broken cable to use with my Zune.
Had nothing to do but recable them.
Found a cord left from my guitar, some high quality thin-section stranded wire and a neutrik plug.
I learned that there is no differences on the resistance and capacity between those cables and using second variant started to solder.
Before I did this Sennheisers were sound OK with their stock wire.
But now got no pleasure from listening and always stay focused on the low-mid frequencies that became too forward.

So is there anything that I could do to "repair" them ?
p.s. I don't want to buy a new portables yet

By the way. Sorry for the wall of text and bad English. It's not my native language.
Cheers, Evan.

Not sure how good the EQ is on the Zune(I've heard it was horrible but never tried it).

But if you have a customizable EQ then you could adjust the frequencies on it and make them sound a little better.
