TBH I dismissed increasing impedance because if it would mean slower and uncontrolled bass. even if that's not a dynamic driver I'm not a fan of this idea. that said I didn't try.
there are also adapters to decrease impedance. I don't know how they really work but I guess they must use the R*R/(R+R)= R/2 idea, with the same resistors in parallel.(but then dividing current for an IEM doesn't seem like the greatest idea).
edit: just tried the most idiotic impedance mismatch with the 334 right out of a hifimedy dac (dunno about the impedance output of that thing but usually dacs are above 100ohm). and if it's too much of everything in a very bad way (Jesus wouldn't do that), it does as advertised. I might have taken the problem the wrong way, lower bass does sound tighter-ish.
but here (stupid extreme situation) the signature is damaged beyond repair in the medium and trebles I couldn't save the poor 334 with parametric EQ.
well at least I know I can play with this if I decide to buy one. thanks .
reasons to buy one: +1
(and now I want to get some W4 just to see if I can really get the mids back with impedance ^_^.)

LALALALALALALALALALALALALALA I can't hear you.
I thought the 335 had only tighter bass and more trebles, not more bass. anyway more or less bass I still can't get one.
