Talking about brands is too general. I have certain power cords that give more extended treble and others that emphasize the lower frequencies.
Better bass slam could be a result of a hump in the bass region.
The effects of the power devices (filtres, power cords, audiophile sockets, etc.) depend on the quality of the current where you live. I live in a building with many apartments and any power tweaks are very audible. But some friends of mine, living in one family houses, or in small vilages, do not hear big improvement from such things.
