Help Fuze lacking some bass???

I have had my new sony MDREX's for about a month i still can't get bass i wanted. I tried adjusting the EQ, but if i set it up to high it will distort. I hate to say it but my old skullcandys did better bass. The MDREX works great with my S615 and my old Lyra (it sounds so nice and clean on the lyra!!! it has a better spectrum)

any suggestions for EQ? Mods? Something? maybe a cheap amp?

I would say, for now, use your other Sony's with the Fuze.

The EQ on the Fuze is suspect too. A FiiO E3 would be a nice cheap bass booster however......works for me anyways, and depending on where you order, can be less than $10. If you were to try one of them, that might be what your new Sony's need. With my E3 and the EQ on "normal" there's plenty of bass.

If you want to buy E3 online, Dealextreme.com is a good place to start looking.
