I'm using the XMMS LADSPA plugin, with the following filters:

- TAP Equalizer/BW with -10dB at 9kHz and +6dB at 16kHz (to fix the
hi-freq unevenness)
- 4-band parametric filter with +15dB and bandwidth 1.7 at 20Hz (to fix
the lo-freq dip)
- Simple Amplifier with a -15dB gain over the entire spectrum (otherwise
the LADSPA chain gets overloaded by the 4-band filter)

The phones sound awesome this way. The residual roughness that I was
complaining about is due to the fact that I'm listening to 128k
streaming MP3 radio stations.
