Is there an error in this preset for Sennheiser 560S headphones.

I use the jaakkopassanen parametric settings as a starting point for all my headphone and IEM equalizations.
Sennhieser HD 595. Using the jaakkopassanen settings the sound was fine, if not exactly to my taste.
Sennheiser HD 650. Fine again but a bit tame in the treble for my tastes.
Tanchjim One. Good.
Beyerdynamic DT 990. Good.

However, applying the equalization settings from the link to my Sennheiser 560S produces a really awful sound. To my ears it kills everything there is to like in the stock performance. It's like the recording has been sat on.
Amir's rough equalization gives a far better result.
Has anyone else found the jakkopassenen parametric equalization settings for the Sennheiser 560S makes the headphones almost unlistenable to?
