I would not call the Audiotechnia M50's reference headphones at all; their sound signature is anything but flat.

You can just use software equalizer - Foobar2k has some nice add ons. I particularly like Electri-Q.

What DAC do you plan to use?

From what I can see, the K551 is just like the K550 with a microphone? I liked the K550, and was thinking of buying them, but ended up not, since the D2000 were on sale for me

Also, when I auditioned the K550, I think something was wrong with the headphones, since the bass was very weak (maybe loose cable, broken driver, who knows). The next time I went back, it was a little puzzling. The fit of the K550 is important to get good sound though.

I don't normally buy stainless regulators because they are usually expensive and rarely go on sale.

I've built several chrome plated brass ones, however.

I'm currently working on a nice dual stage Harrison for someone.
