The human brain is able to adapt and adjust to an exorbitant degree.

I would almost argue that if one goes back to a previous pair of 'phones and listens to that older pair exclusively for two weeks, one would adjust back to hearing all the positives of the previous pair of 'phones as one would have adjusted/converted back to the sonic signature of the older 'phones
Good point! I'm currently preparing a 4-way shootout between the SM3/FX700/e-Q7/FI-BA-SS that involves heavy A/B listening. Despite the fact that the SM3 are technically brilliant, I'm having a hard time because their highs are significantly recessed as compared to all 3 others.

But I can very well imagine that if I'd exclusively listen to the SM3 for a longer periode my brain would adjust and I wouldn't mind any more.
