I spend time listening to a series of test tones and getting the volume levels across the the board equalized. Once I've done that I find it works well for me. When I just use a preset or tweak it up to suit a mood it sounds artificial after a while.
So correct me if I'm wrong, you correct the imbalances in the headphone not according to the sound you want but according to the sound it lacks? Then by doing that you stay true to the sound signature of the headphones but sort of more "corrected" thru EQing?
