EQing Headphones

Hey all,
I was just wondering what y'alls thoughts are on EQing the headphones you use. A friend gave me a pair of beats of few years back and of course we all know the low end is super hyped on them. I haven't tried this before but today while plugging them in to do some casual listening I decided to plug them into my receiver and EQ them to see if I can get a more natural sound. I had to turn the slider for 63Hz down quite a bit before getting the bass to mesh better with the rest of the mix and not be so boomy. Do any of you ever take this approach when using headphones? A lot of pairs out these days seem to have a lot of hyped frequencies but taking some time to EQ them seems to improve their sound a lot. Any down sides to doing this?
