Equalizers can cause more problems than they solve. Too easy to overdrive the headphone when boosting a given frequency. That causes a very artificial sound. Plus, not easy to get a good set of curves for a given set of headphones.
Some headphones models (Audeze?) come with EQ curves. That would likely help a lot, as they would have both the source level and boost level set correctly.
Sonarworks offers curves for many headphones. You can also send a pair in for a set of curves specific to the headphone you sent in.
