Sibilance

Seems like all I do anymore is worry about sibilance, which is pronounced S, CH and T sounds in recording. I've been trying to listen to the tracks on my album on different systems, and on headphones there are often sibilance issues. I'm trying to figure out whether this is just because headphones suck and are all high-end or if it's a mix issue and I need to go back and obsess on all the sibilance a bit more.

It occurs to me as I spend hours doing this sort of stuff and not enjoying it at all that it's like the exact opposite of writing and playing music. Ho hum.
