I think it depends on the headphone. My v6's had harsh treble, so it my have cut it down a bit (PLACEBO ALERT!!!). I don't think it'll kill the sq of the CHP-2500's at all. I'm DIEING to try it out myself.
BTW: in the HD25-1 II review thread I've been asked to do a comparison. I find the HD25-1 II's sound better, but without the booming bass. The overall sq is cleaner,...but for $25-$30 these are the better bargain. My sennheiser cans are reference quality, but eq fantastically.
Long story short - these sound great, but my sennheiser cans do have the better overall sound. But, for the price, you can't beat the Cortex's!!!
Remember, 2 different price points & 2 different targets.
