NICE! I have really wanted to try those speakers. How do the towers sound in 2 channel?

No, it's making it as neutral as possible scientifically.
Headphones aren't neutral by any extent.

It's EQ it to 'neutral'.
Reference sound is neutral.

All of what I said in that original post scientifically makes sense.
I'm not sugar coating the sound.

Looks just like baffle step correction in speakers. Does a good seal with headphones make up for the bass limitation the in same way small sealed rooms do not need a sub (pressure mode).

You mean 'seal' as in closed headphones design or 'seal' as in comfort?

Theoretically I really should decrease the diffusion setting to nothing as I have no early reflections but meh. Will probably slide it down a tad though. Too much diffusion of course is just as bad as no diffusion (when there are early reflections).

I understand that this system may not sound near as good as you others that spend 4-5 grand on a single speaker, but I am very happy with my setup. Although I would love to hear a real audiophiles setup so I can compare the differences.

That's really all that matters. I bet some people wouldn't like my DT770 pros but I think they sound fantastic. It's a very personal thing.

Sealed, as in between the element and the ear.

They sound pretty good. A bit midrange heavy for the first few hours. I had a pair of them before.

I just got my Hifiman HE-300s in the mail and my Fiio e10. First time buying higher quality headphones and I'm new to all this audiophile stuff, but so far they sound amazing. I'll try to get some pictures up of them. ~350$ total for both

Edit- PICS

Last one is with my paracord sleeved Sennheiser HD 428s, got em for 15$ with a broken plug. Easy 5$ fix.
