thats too loud in general, usually if you burn it you would push it maybe about 10-15% higher than your normal so you don't fry the drivers

But it always is important to wade out for a few days to get used to the sound, as well.
the iphone 5 is pretty clean actually. the cleanest dac among all apple products is the latest generation ipod touch, then the iphone 5s then the iphone 5
so its not the phone's problem. its probably 1) seal- maybe theres a leak if its not adjusted perfectly to seal 2) files as stated before--> the m50s butcher badly recorded files, and its not even about the bitrate, maybe if the song is really old or not recorded with good equipment it could contribute to that--> thats why theirs remastered files that come out many many years later
