I find the EDSP audio contouring on my Mark 5 is very helpful for
minimizing fatigue.  It has taken care of the only real drawback to my
Radio Shack phones, which is the excessive high-frequency response.
Before, on my TS-930, 2-4 mfd of capacitance across the headphones (thanks,
K2UA) took care of this problem pretty well too.
