Having another listen to MA750 this evening, that sub-bass is extremely powerful with my IHIFI DAP. Listening to electronic music the low end reaches down low, deep deep deep punching with authority, rather dynamic as well, "feel da bass". Not afraid letting you know it's around. Luckily, also presents fairly decent texture, detail, and speed is above average.
I would personally prefer a little less low end forwardness for my preferences, let off the accelerator a little, because its fun for a while and I'm in two minds whether I love it or dislike after a certain duration . For mainstreamers however they'll be more than pleased you'll be bassing out till your hearts content with dance music and hip hop. Don't get me wrong, it's fun but for someone who listens to rather neutral (to some lacking) low end as preference MA750 is a little overly emphasised at times.
I will try with some other players as IHIFI 760 has solid bass impact and could be over cooking the show.

I actually think they are the best IEMs under $200 that I have heard, beating the TWFK models, GR07 MKII, and the very nice BA-100 as well as several others. Will compare them to the DN-1000 that I won.
I think that the bass has cleared up significantly after my 50 hours or so of burning in. It is now more controlled and has less rumble, which gives the listener an impression of these being more detailed but the bass is still the highlight for me. Separation seems to have improved and everything sounds more refined. On the frequency graph the midrange is forward, but I actually find it slightly recessed, a tad bit more so than my Miracles. The treble on the graph seems about right, being rolled off at 6-7K. It has plenty of sparkle, but if you come from a brighter IEM such as the the UM Miracle or a R50/AX7/DBA-02 etc, then these might sound a bit dark upon the first listen, but they are actually relatively well balanced.
Overall these are a wonderful all rounder and it is hard to imagine something better at it's price range.

Good points Lin. I'm finding the same thing, they might sound little dark at first coming from my RDB v1 Mini and original 1Plus2 here but if you bare with it for 5 or 10 minutes they clear right up for me, I've put up with much worse adjustment periods and some no matter how hard I tried just couldn't shake. I was a little like what you mentioned above when I first put MA750 on, but it clears up within 5 minutes or so.
