I can clear this one up very quickly - I'm in the UK but I set my J3 firmware to the outside EU option. This basically means that the J3 outputs approximately 33% more volume than the EU-limited volume option.
That just changes the max volume. It does not lower the output impedance of the output stage. It absolutely does NOT improve the shortcomings with not having enough grunt for low-impedance mutli-BA IEMs/CIEMs.
Also, playing around with the EQ will not solve the problem either.
As much as I like the J3 (it has so many positive points), it simply does not have a good enough output stage to properly drive low-impedance mutli-BA IEMs/CIEMs.
I wish it did but it doesn't.
