It's a shame that the sonarworks does not have an HD26 profile. That's my current favorite closed headphone.
Just giving this a revisit, as there's another headphone eq joining the throng, made by Waves: Waves Announces Headphone EQ Calibration For Nx Virtual Mix Room - ProSoundWeb

and reviewed here: Waves Nx Review | AudioTechnology Magazine

The newest version, with headphone calibration, is on sale for $39: http://www.waves.com/plugins/nx#intr...rtual-mix-room

Has anyone here tried Waves Nx, or is able to compare with Sonarworks, especially in regard to using headphones in the field for monitoring purposes on location...do these add-ons help there ?

I was recording some wonderful Mozart yesterday in a lovely hall
I tried my HD 650 but had to revert to the HD25 because of leakage
The 25 is hardly perfect but it is a fantastic and reliable tool when clarity is required
HD 800 is still the benchmark to me, and now my monitor LS sound similar to them too, I have continuity!

Agreed. I have two pairs of 25 that are in constant use for location classical recording. Detailed, faithful/neutral, isolating, rugged and road tested. Very fine headphones for the location work.

You forgot to mention insanely efficient and LOUD (if desired)...almost any old headphone-out socket will drive them happily, no need for an exotic standalone headphone amp on location !

The 'reference to speaker calibration' software is less likely to be of use on location compared with back-at-base review/editing/mixing. Also, it's of necessity going to be tied to a computer as a plug-in on the monitoring chain, so will be of no use in the field for those who use dedicated recorders
