Agreed, I never do that. I can't tell anything in headphones, and never use them unless I need to play to a click or overdub. I rely on repeated trials - record, listen over monitors, repeat... I also use lots of meters that I can monitor during setup, so once I know what I like, I can visually repeat it.

A before/after example of your phase adjustment would be interesting to hear.
