Hi all, i own a pair of Denon c300 iems and the bass on them sound really deep and punchy at low volume levels from my fiio e11 amplifier. But when i increase the volume level on the amp, the higher i go the more bloated and muddy the bass gets on these iems. Are these iem generally bloated when amped and driven hard?
Do you experience bloated bass with the Denon C300?

Hmm, when i use my Cowon I also need to amp them. This is because of the ipod ring on the jack causes issues on the Cowon. You actually have a fiio E11 right? This is a pretty warm amp to begin with. You aren't using bass boost level 2 right?
That would be like pouring yourself a cup of bass and then adding 7 spoons of base. If that is the case then you should try unequalised or flat, at least that's what I run my Denons on.
While the denon is pretty forgiving of low quality mp3s, I have noticed a bit of muddiness, but when running a flac like RAM/Daft Punk, the experience is brilliant, no matter what the volume.
