Please show me "accurate" ones?
Also what's the alternative for people that must make compromise and can't buy HD600 or more expensive cans, what do you actually advise about buying?Even if we assume they can fix the frequency response of a set of headphones, it would still depend on the QC of the manufacturers to make cans that have a consistent frequency response. Or else it wouldn't line up with the correction. Hopefully it can fix some of the problem, and that the frequencies being compensated for aren't actually making the accuracy even worse.
It doesn't make it any worse than it is and it wouldn't on long run even if that happened, you have control over how much correction you apply also, so it's moot point.
I'm not saying it's a bad idea. Actually I'm considering it for myself, but I still suspect there's an element of faith to it.
I think more important than being on the list of headphones that a software compensates for is probably just that it performs well enough on their own. For me it means however close I can get to a flat response in my price range. Totally not against adding software to the equation, but 1) it might be risky to go all-in and bet it can transform cans with a lot of problems into a reliable reference, and 2) it's probably a bit risky to expect your perception of "improved" to always be reliable, especially when you're expecting an improvement.
I was just suggesting to stay critical, basically.
