I'm resorting to the gain limiters in FLAC Player (iPhone) and Rockbox (WhipMOD) to get a suitably low volume with my UERMs. Not sure if those have any serious effect on resolution, but it's either that or pain and tinnitus. And I don't have sensitive hearing by any means, I've been to my share of concerts and clubs.
Sorry for the delay in answering.
I'm using through the pc via usb or spdif, and with a sansa fize via LOD cable. With the W4r, I get just past the threshold to have a pleasant listening experience. I belive it's not too loud because when I take one of the phones off my ear, the ventilator seems to have about the same volume as the other channel.
Sometimes I realy wanted to have a SPLmeter, sometimes I think that I use the headphones too loud, but when I try to compare to the safety guide I read (things like the above, or if you can hear someone near speaking), I appear to be always on the safe zone, but I realy wanted to be sure about it. I don't go too much to nightclubs, but I'm going more now than I have ever gone and for that I just bought a pair os ER20 earplugs, I realy don't want to loose my hearing just yet, I'm only 22....
Maybe the UERMs are more sensitive than the W4r?
Some random thoughts:
My first experience with the 6s-mkii was when they arrived together with the Mad Dogs, and since I was abroad, I had only that and the HF5 I had brought with me. After comming back home and casualy switching between the SGP 4.0 and the 6s-mkii, I realy started to understand what I belive is to need a good amp.
Even for (queit) classical music, the SGP 4.0 had enough juice to make the mad dogs sound loud enough, but when I went to the leckerton, I heard that a lot of thing seemed to be missing or dislocated in the SGP, and that's something I didn't experienced with the fiio e7.
I'm realy happy with the 6S-mkii, and I didn't quite knew what to expect, but it's certanly very different and possibly better than what I hoped before.
And, well, a picture of the baby:
