Okie, just to start off, im using jvc fx3x's which are normally considered bass heavy. What I found that was lacking was the clarity/ sound seperation while playing music. Here are some of the steps i took to make these bass iems sound more balanced/articulate. Another disclaimer, this requires a portable media player, preferably an android phone that is rooted. Ok so the first thing i did was analyze my earphones response to frequency. I did this by analyzing a frequency chart from goldenears. I then tuned the equalizer on my phone so that the mids would come out more so that the response was flatter. Once I did that, i then downloaded an app called viper4android xhifi which restores audio quality especially in treble ranges. I then enabled that alongside my music player and set the bass knob to maximum. Normally when i do this, the mids and highs are overpowered by the excessive bass, but now, the sound is much more balanced. I can hear many more details. Downsides to this are that it still wont be nearly as clear as a balanced iem, and some soundstage may get a bit narrower, but is much better than an untuned sound. Overall this method should work with anyone with a bassy iem and a rooted android phone. Even on a pc, the equalizer can be set to bring out the mids.
