Who exactly requested for increased low end frequency response, tweaked midrange and boosted highs?

Considering I have to heavily EQ my 800's for added bass, me?

If you cared about being uncompromising, you'd buy an EQ. Simple. Relying on an amp/phone stack to line up perfectly out the box is a fools goal IMO I mean its funny, you won't introduce something that tweaks the signal to your chain, but you'll use headphones that are tweaked and modified physically?

Clearly, you miss the point.

Check out the ASR review of the HD800S, they're missing energy below 100hz and missing some energy at 1-5khz. It looks like the HD 8XX will still need a little EQ to bring them to the Harman target response curve, but they do look a little better than the HD800S. I'm not sure how much you can take away from the "highs" changing in the HD 8XX, that part of the frequency response is usually hard to measure due to lots of audio reflections

Yes, audio reflections in the human/measurement ear, plus a masking effect when multiple tones are being played simultaneously. Actual musical performance isn’t well reflected by frequency response graphs, but it is one of the easiest measurements that can be taken by reviewers.

Many many people wanted more bass, and to do that without a masking effect and less perceived detail, the whole frequency response needs to be reconsidered.
